This weeks Get messy prompts were a whole lot of fun to make and I really enjoyed making them. Some weeks it flows better than others and this was definitely one of those! We had to use a photo from a magazine to create a sketch and I picked a nice sassy gal for mine. I used my Gelli Plate to create different colour backgrounds and make a ombre style colour combination. Here’s a close up of the sketches and… Read more »

So last year was in Denmark for a family holiday and I bought wool when I was there. Knitting is, after all, my first love. They have wool in the supermarket for crying out loud! I was talking to the amazingly talented Julia of Julestea blog and we said we’d do a blog hop with her Japan craft haul and my Danish on. Please be sure to check out her blog to see her post. We were staying outside of Copenhagen… Read more »

I have to say that I have not been feeling much like doing anything of anything this past week as I have been struggling with some very sad news here and I have found it very hard to want to focus on anything but my family. I work in a hotel and for the past three years we have had a very lovely man stay with us every week. Every Friday he would fly home to be with his family… Read more »

This week was a little different on Get Messy.  Normally the prompts are put on the Monday and it’s all systems go until next week. This we we had the get messy art journal game and we had a prompt a day to make up the whole prompt for the week. It’s was HARD. I’m so used to just going for it in one sitting or sometimes two sittings if I’ve to wait for something to dry. This week we… Read more »

This week’s Get Messy has us working along with a different prompt every week so this page is a bonus one I’ve been working on inspired by our adventure theme. Well you don’t get much more adventurous than Peter Pan now do you? The page is not my usual style as drawing would NOT be my strong point so I normally stay away from it and rely on a stamphoto or a found image from a magazine.  But in the… Read more »

I have just realised I really didn’t post many of my Get Messy Brave pages up here on the blog! This will of course change with the new Get Messy on Thursdays commitment I have made to get all of my pages posted on a Thursday each week on the blog and Instagram.  “We’ll Be Free” – Acrylic, Sharpie and Rub Ons This was the final closing page for the Season using a quote from Mumford and Sons. Love me… Read more »

So I got some AMAZING news on Wednesday night totally out of the blue and was not expecting it at ALL! I have been working along with the Art Journaling 101 class in Big Picture Classes and I have to say I have been loving the lessons and the whole setup. It’s a fantastic class for anyone who is well into or just wanting to get started in Art Journalling and the prompts that Lauren and Caylee have put together are… Read more »

So so happy to be back in the “swing” of Get Messy and a new season! The season of Adventure!! Yah! o/ This weeks prompt was all about a place we had been and we had to describe it using the senses. Well, it wasn’t hard for me to pick Mumbai as my place as it is most certainly ticks all the boxes for the senses that’s for sure. A little background about me and Mumbai first though. My husband… Read more »
