Over half way through the Season of Magic already. Two weeks left, and that means two weeks until Christmas. Probably time I started getting a bit more festive.
This week I have made a few different pages, not strictly following the Get Messy Art Journal prompts, but there is an element of them in there. And the most important thing is that they portray Magic to me.
This first page is a minimalist take using abstract painting techniques and a quote (seems to be my go-to formula).
Next up is a take on a collage style by Mama Finch a new art journalling idol of mine. The strips of paper make really cool effects. Her collages are much more detailed than mine, but I love this effect. This page also expresses how I am feeling right now.
Another take on the strip collage. Using butterflies, because butterflies are magical after all.
And last but not least, a woodland scene using layered pages. I saw something similar on Pinterest quite a while ago and felt compelled to make something like it.
I might even post a step-by-step run through of how I made this spread at a later date.
I hope your Christmas preparations are going well, see you all next week. xx
