Get Messy | Collage

Hi everyone – Get Messy time again.

I have to admit I was feeling the pressure of getting my journal pages done last week with all of posts in the Get Messy Facebook group. But I sat down on Saturday afternoon and things just flowed. My teeny tiny journal album is perfect for quick pages and batch processing. I know I keep going on about my small album but I really love it.

Anyhoo – onto my spread.


I played around with texture past again. That stuff is so fun!

I’m not sure why but there is a bit of a crazy vibe coming from these pages. Not sure what happened there. But the results are cool I think. I really let my hair down and just went with it. No overthinking this one.



Next up is a little floral goodness.


Magazine clippings, song lyrics and sharpie fine liners. Simple but I really love this combo.



See you all next week.


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:

    Love it all! Especially the page with the girl and the sneakers. Also, I keep trying to figure out exactly how small your journal is. It seems to be super tiny, but at the same time how on earth would you get so much detail in there ? 🙂

      Haha. It’s a 4×4 We R Memory Keepers album. Perfect size for me.

    I really need to follow suit and start a small journal. I think at times the sheer size of a two-page spread in my re-purposed school textbook journal is daunting and puts me off. I love your work however small it is! Tfs

    Girl you make this tiny album appear huge! Your pictures are fab and still have so much detail. I have 3 albums at home and I’m afraid to get busy on them. Well done!
