Get Messy | Gratitude

Hi there you crafty vixens

It is definitely the end of the month, and time to post my response to the Get Messy month prompt. The prompt was:

Journaling Challenge: Gratitude. What are you grateful for? What aspects of your life are you thankful for, that you might be overlooking while being busy?

Art Challenge: Use visual examples for at least three things you’re grateful for. Photos/doodles/magazine cut outs/stickers/anything. SHOW us your gratitude!

Here is my take on the page.

I started with the black card and some chalk markers – boy are those suckers fun – but a little bit messy. I knew I wanted to have some water colour on there somewhere as well and I had every intention of drawing the items I am grateful for – but had a little moment of insecurity and couldn’t bring myself to put pen to paper with sketching. Then I though of stamps and found these awesome stamps from Kellie Stamps (these are no longer available, but Kellie has loads of awesome stamps there) and Amy Tangerine. Stamping is relatively new to me – I’ve always been just a bit scared of them – but I am breaking through that and making the most of it.

I also worked on a couple of Halloween based pages just for fun. I enjoyed making these so much.

Of course they feature water colour. I took a few days off work last week and I was obsessed with water colouring. And I am really please with how these turned out. Both of them were copied from Pinterest items I saw – but they each have my own take added to them.
