Get Messy | Experiments and a Message

Howdie I have so many layouts ready to share I can’t decide which ones to post first. I want to post them all! But I’ll limit it to four today.


First up is a pattern inspired by Ashley Goldberg. I haven’t taken her Studio Calico course but am so tempted. I started this layout as a test for a canvas I wanted to work on. And once I finished it I jumped straight in. I’ll share the end result another day though.


Next up is a page that didn’t quite work out how I planned but I have decided this journal is about experimenting, making things and sharing them regardless of how they turn out. So here we go.


Even the photo didn’t come out quite right – but anyway. The message I was trying to express was that inspiration can come from anywhere – including a magazine article.


Next is another experiment that started out with a different vision but ended up looking pretty cool anyway. I’m not good with mists so I had to change my plans after I added them. Water colours came to my rescue and I love the outcome.

And last but not least – stamps (by Kellie Stamps of course) and a message to you all.

  1. You shouldn’t worry about the second page “not turning out”, it looks absolutely awesome to me and is my favorite of these! Plus, the mists/watercolor effect turned out intense and powerful. Thank you for sharing the little note too, I am inspired by everyone so much each week, so I totally agree with your remarks!
