Get Messy | Water Colour

Another week rolls around and I am sharing my Get Messy Art Journal pages. I hope you like these – they are my first pages using my new journal. I really love the recycled paper. But I am still so nervous when I get started.

I attempted some water colour landscapes and still life’s. The paper absorbed a bit more paint than I was expecting so have started using gesso now to help with this.

The second set are more collage based pages.

I’m quite happy with this weeks pages. Now to move on to the prompt page. I have a question though. What do you do when a page doesn’t quite work out how you anticipated. Or gets damaged (by paint seepage for instance) – do you start again? Or embrace it?

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. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal

    Watercolors are so much fun to work with and your’s are lovely (and I tend to use any seepage as accidental inspiration, lol!)!
