This month our prompt was to journal about things that we are thankful for. I’ll be honest, my first attempt turned out to be a pretty sorry looking page, but I have already done many collages of things that I am thankful for in the past, including this one for get messy so I decided to forgo that idea. As I was thinking about what my new page would look like, I decided to make one drawing that would encompass three different things I am thankful for: sunshine, travel, and community. While sunshine and travel might be fairly distinct on this page, I used the sharpie to make the inner details combine and work together to create the whole of the design, exemplifying community. This community being the people around me, my family, church, friends, Kevin – together we are all a community and I am learning how valuable a solid one is.
Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practice 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.
