COLOR is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment. 🙌🏽💃🏽

It’s been a minute since I’ve used a magazine cut out! I found this image and adding the key just fit! I love when things just come together without a plan! I think that’s one of the reasons I love art journaling. Nothing is required of me- I am free.👩🏻‍🎨

I started a sketchbook a few months ago for just pencil drawings. I haven't been working in it lately, but when I do, I remember how much I love drawing. It's hard, no lie. It's not a skill I practice enough to feel confident in, but then I remind myself of that: it's just a skill I can LEARN. Like anything in life we have to try hard & practice to get better at it. I remind myself of this when I'm doing something that is hard or difficult. As I've gotten older, I've also gotten a lot better at being bad at things. I always wanted to be awesome the first time. And now I'm okay with not being awesome. I know now that's wildly unrealistic and that there is value in failure, and beauty in being challenged. What do you want to be better at? How can you work towards that dream?

Did you hear? Get Messy courses are retiring! We are working on simplifying our offers and packing as much value into our membership as we can. Over the next 3 months we’ll slowly be retiring all the courses and then adding them into the membership next year. You can read more about how it works via the link in our profile. This month the courses that are retiring are Basic Bookbinding, Transference, Scrap Collage, and Heart Journal. If you purchase the courses or have already you will have lifetime access to them. Lots more info is in the link in our profile. But go shop now if you have had your eye on any of these! #getmessyartjournal

Thank you @vineandthistle for the repeating pattern tutorial! Sand dollars for a beachy vibe 😎 #getmessyartjournal #gmseasonofseasons #acrylicpaint #repeatingpattern

What growth looks like to me // lots of swearing, layers, colours and textures, adding and unshedding..

Telling my story thru abstract art and color. This represents three phases of my life: childhood on the left, the last 15 or so years on the right, and the intervening years in the center. Not everything in those middle years was as bleak as the colors suggest, but there was a dark cloud hanging over my head for much of the time. #gmseasonofstory #getmessyartjournal #abstract art #acrylics #fluidacrylic #brushmarker #gellyroll #gellyrollpen #gellyrollwhite #gellyrollwhitepen

did some ARTing last night. my mom is a teacher so coming home for a visit means endless craft supplies at my disposal. I pulled out anything that caught my interest (paints, oil pastels, glitter pens, glitter) and created. no pressure, no expectations. have you ever channeled your heart into art so well that the art actually started to hurt you? that happened with one piece from last night: it’s simple, but also raw and violent. it is a physical manifestation of my hurt so accurate that looking at it feels like when you jab your fingers into a fresh bruise to make sure it still hurts. and it does. but—isn’t that the point? to draw out pain from the inside and trap it somewhere else?

This is the cover of my #gmseasonofseasons journal. Its an old childrens book that has had many pages cut out already for collage - but I love the size and working on squares appeals to me. The markers had a weird reaction to the fixative spray which is why there is a texture on some parts. Next time Ill do thr marker after the spray. #themoreyouknow This season is coincidentally aligned with a lot of lifestyle changes I am making to better manage my physical and mental health. Uncharted territory and plenty of being uncomfortably present in my body.

We're all about the small-town summer parades in our area. After one recent parade, I kept a bunch of the brightly colored candy wrappers and glued them into my art journal and left it on my desk to dry. My candy-obsessed 4 year old found it the next morning, and exclaimed, "Mommy! This makes me feel so proud of you!"
He looked at me with the sweetest, proudest face and it made my whole day. Support local artists. 😉

This is a page in my @getmessyartjournal for the season of seasons. Today is so smokey from all the forest fires, the air is still, hot and an eerie orange. I rarely use these hot colours by themselves in my art, there is no teal paint .. No green paint only the colors peeking through the yellows from the book page..... It feels right for today.

Day 88/💯: Thankful for all the greenery in my backyard...the first thing I long for after a long cold and bare winter is all the green.

Used gessoed mixed media paper and acrylics, trying to loosen up and be more abstract in my painting instead of being so realistic and rigid.

Catching up with my #oneinchwonders2018 inspired by the last few days spent at the wonderful @earthheartuk wild woman summer camp. ⛺️🌲🍃☀️💃🏊‍♂️🎸🔥🌲

First of prompt number 2 in @getmessyartjournal Season of Seasons; Capture the Season. Currently I’m in the midst of summer, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the summerhouse in the garden. It’s a great space to read with a cup of tea, watch the bees dance around the lavender and recharge the soul. .
