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.


Season of Kindness Journal Flip Through

I just completed my Season of Kindness Journal through Get Messy. I did some fun activities, including kind little art-y messages that I left out in public for people to find, mailing some kindness mail to friends, and also working in a journal dedicated to the season. I mad a 16-page pamphlet bound journal for the season and here are a few of the most successful pages. This is a place where I explore, try out new techniques, and let it all go. I included more quotes this season to bring some themes into focus for each spread.
