Season of Documenting Journal Flip Through

I faced a little creative block in August, and really relied on my journal to keep making a little bit every day. I credit the community and motivation of Get Messy for keeping me making, even when I wasn’t feeling it.

I love being a member of Get Messy! It is an online creative group that provides weekly prompts and tutorials that help keep you making. Get Messy’s last season was Season of Documenting. I talked more about Get Messy on my blog here.

This season, I was able to make quite a few pages, both on the theme and just on my own themes as well. Some pages are representative of tutorials led by so many other awesome artists.

Have a look at the gallery below for a sample of some of my favorite pages. I’m also sharing a link to my YouTube channel where I am sharing a full flip through of the season’s pages. I did this season within a larger journal, and will do a full video of that journal next week!

September daily journal challenge

This month I took the September 30 days of art journalling challenge on Creative Bug led by Lauren and Caylee of Get Messy. As a lifetime Get Messy member I did get the class for free and two months of Creative Bug also… what a steal!

While I don’t love every page, there are some good nuggets in here for sure! I also was more productive overall by getting that journal open every day. Kicked off a lot of other creative projects this month.

Creative challenges for the win! Here is a flip through video of my entire journal. Enjoy!

Season of Seasons pages

The past two months was the Seasons of Seasons over at Get Messy. I used a travel brochure I received in the mail as my journal this time. There are nine spreads plus the covers, so I basically followed along with the tutorials offered by the creative team. Get Messy also does a handful of prompts every week, but I knew I wouldn’t have the time for those, so I didn’t factor that into my journal size.

I always enjoy the tutorials! This month there were a few outside of my comfort zone, like the seasonal map and drawing the contents of my purse (which was the last one and definitely got the least attention). I am not sure those are my style, but they were still fun to do.
