It’s the end of November and that means that Christmas is nearly upon us. But it also means that it is time to share my response to the Get Messy Art Journal prompt. This months prompt was a good one – but aren’t they all?
Journaling challenge: Pick one word that describes you right now. Just one word.
Art challenge: Play with the word you picked. Use letter stickers, cut out your word from magazines and create a collage, write your word a hundred times on a piece of paper and use it as a background, use paint to write your word, … The main focus should be on your word.
My word is JOY.
I had two attempts at the prompt. My first one involved stamps and was very similar to another page I made recently and while I liked it I thought I would try something else as well. So here we go.
My word spoke to me because it is the holiday season and nothing fills me with joy more than spending time with my family and seeing the JOY on their faces.
I used a stamp from the 2013 December Daily kit and also one from Kellie Stamps. It was a lot of fun creating the pattern and I am slowly getting more confident with stamping.
My second page uses brush script. I’ve progressed with the Life|Scripted course and am now working with letters. This was my first full word.
I also decided to make a collage page, just for something different. It’s totally unrelated to the prompt but I thought I would share it just the same.
