I am excited to share this post about the first art journal collab I have ever done! It started back in 2016, after I joined Get Messy in autumn. Lucia wrote me a message, asking if I wanted to do a collaboration with her. Of course, I said yes! We chose two themes - Flowers and Black&White.
It took us a long time to complete these journals, but they are finally back with their owners and I'd like to share the first one - the Flower Journal collab.
You, guys! I am so excited to be typing up this blog post! My friend, Get Messy Creative Team teammate, and all-round magical human, Jules, has created her own class - Pen + Ink, Grown Up Art with Your Childhood Supplies. That description is so on point, I can't even tell you! You only need the most limited amount of supplies for this course, but the fun you are going to have (that I can promise!) is immense! Here, let me show you just how much FUN I had.
Woohooo! We are starting a new season at Get Messy Art Journal today! We are in for a magnificent Season of Color! We at Get Messy want to see you shine bright in all the colors of the rainbow. We will learn color inspiration, symbolism, mixing and matching colors and much more! With the brand spanking new season pass you can get taste of Get Messy and express yourself in all the colors of your soul!
Get Messy Art Journal is an art journaling program that is a school, art playground and family. We are a group of like minded art journalers who have come together under this art form to learn, share, practice our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. Our community values consistent creating, encouragement and support and trying new things. I totally recommend Get Messy Art Journal if you are feeling creative and want to get into the habit of making art.
Today, I'd like to share my first blog post in On My Bookshelf series. We are going to talk about a book that was created to be an inspiration, a guide, a gentle kick in the bum for the people who are afraid to be creative - The Creative License by Danny Gregory.
Too many people seem to feel they are not and cannot ever be creative. (...) This book is designed to give you - all of you - something you actually already have: permission to be intensely, brilliantly, wonderfully creative.
