Get Messy | Owls, Sequins and Script

Hi again – are you ready for another week of art journal pages? Well I am!


First up is a little number I call ‘Owl City’. A cute little zentangle owl piece. This was fun and created while sitting in the car waiting for my son to finish soccer. I probably should have been watching – but it was cold, damp and quite early on a Saturday morning – such a slack mother!

Then comes ‘Shiny’. A simple scrappy feeling art journal page using thickers and sequins. Who doesn’t love sequins and sparkly letters?


Once again I have tried working with brush script. Still hate my writing and still not good with a brush. I will keep practicing though.

And my last page is an ode to all of the fathers out there. Sunday just gone was Father’s Day in Australia and I made this page out of the wrapping from my husbands gift. Peter Alexander Star Wars PJs. But damn that black page was hard to photograph!


Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. Go check out these amazing pages creating by some crazy talented ladies who all have a unique perspective and style:

      There totally are. Girls and boys. And I think they will be on sale now because they’ve been out for a while. Well in Australia anyway.

    So sweet your tiny journal. Sequins and thickers are perfection I agree. Your brush script looks lovely.
