Get Messy Art Journal | 001


Today, I'm so excited to share the first pages of my Get Messy Art Journal.  Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens share art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal.




This is actually the first art journal I've ever kept, so I thought a lot about what kind of book I wanted to use.  In the end, I chose my Traveler's Notebook and I hand stitched my own small journal to slip inside.  



Choosing the pattern was a lot of fun and I knew it would set the tone for all the content within . . . so, naturally polka dots . . . and pink binding.  If the cover is any indication of what you'll find inside, expect glitter and sequins . . .



Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek inside my journal!  I'm really enjoying this creative process and already have more pages in the works for next week.  If you have any questions about today's pages, feel free to drop me a line!
