Get Messy | After the break

I took a couple of weeks off from blogging and creating, I’m not sure if you noticed or not. Basically, I lost my mojo – and had a crazy couple of weeks with visitors, school formals, end of year school stuff and just life in general. But I’m happy to say my creativity has returned. And even though the Get Messy Art Journal group is on a break I thought I would try to post frequently anyway.

Recently I purchased the Paint|Plan|Play course by Ashley Goldberg. I haven’t yet started it, but took inspiration from Ashley’s work with this journal page. I was aiming for a different style to what I usually create. I think I succeeded.

This second layout kind of came from the same place – well it ended up that way after a couple of botched layers of water colour and gesso. I was happy with the outcome – but tell me – how do you stop gloss acrylic paint pages from sticking together even after they are dry?

Last of all is a Christmasy page. I have resisted working with doilies for ages – but I might just have been converted.

Hope you enjoyed this weeks artwork. I’d love to hear what you think – and also some ideas for techniques and styles I should try.
