The outgoing Get Messy Creative Team decided we would celebrate our time on the team with a blog hop – but not just any blog hop, a post about how the team has inspired us over the past twelve months. In particular, how one particular member has inspired them. After a random selection, I am going to talk to you about Jules.
So wow, where do I start? Jules epitomises Get Messy to me. She has been there almost since the beginning, in fact I think we started at around the same time. I can still remember her page in response to the first monthly prompt as they were way back then – it was a page about a party – I think there were only about 30 people in Get Messy back then so it was fairly easy to remember who was who. As time has gone by, Jules has well and truly left her Get Messy mark on me and many other people in the community.
Her love of ink, felt tips and magazine pages, and her ability to consistently make art – even while travelling – is truly inspirational. Jules is one of the most prolific artists in the group and if you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should. I’ve been stalking it for the past hour and have chosen a couple of samples of her art.
Jules is also part of the Zine Squad that makes zines for unsuspecting ‘victims’ with a theme. I was ‘zined’ earlier this year and it was the most wonderful package I have received in the mail in a long time. It was the day before I went into hospital for surgery so it really made my day, and the topic was coincidentally about my word for the year – imagination. How they knew that is beyond me, but it made an impact.
So in a nutshell, Jules is an art journaling pocket rocket from England. She is continuing on as a Get Messy Creative Team member so you can continue to be inspired by her magical style.
Thank you Jules for just being you, and for making my time on the Creative Team an unforgettable experience. I have made this piece of art in your honour – I hope I have done your style justice.
