Get Messy- Season of Happy Week 2

It's Thursday again! Weirdly enough, Mondays and Thursdays are my 2 favorite days of the week. Anyhow, onto my Get Messy Art Journal pages of the week:

Get Messy Art Journal is an art journaling program that is a school, art playground and family. We are a group of like minded art journalers who have come together under this art form to learn, share, practice our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. Our community values consistent creating, encouragement and suppport and trying new things. We would love to have you join us as a member of Get Messy Art Journal.
You can read more about why I love the Get Messy community here.

There was a tutorial on the Get Messy blog for trying a hot glue resist and I had to play along! I had done this technique before, but it has been a while since then.

I hot glued on the circles and lines and then painted watercolors over top of it and then doodled out a list of things that made me happy this week.

One of the prompts was about relationships, so being single, I took this prompt and made it my own.

There was also a color challenge to try and do a monochromatic page! So, mine is (almost) all pink! I did add in a bit of gold..

I also used a few of my scrap foil from my Minc machine! As you can see in the picture below they give my page a bit of shine!

That's all I have for this week. I did do more art journaling, but it has been for secret projects that I'm not ready to share yet!

Did you do any projects this week? Leave me a link, I'd love to see!

  1. You do what you love and we love what you do! OK, it was too easy to say but it's real too!

  2. Your pages are wonderful! Your hot glue resist turned out great and I love your thoughts on being happy alone!!!

  3. Love your pages. Must try the hot glue resist. Love all your colour use as well.

  4. I am finding the prompt for the list thing a real challenge - you have done a take on it that is great. The glue and listy concept page is my fave, nice bit of combining your prompts there Katie!

  5. Well done on the hot glue resist - mine failed miserably. Will try again though.

  6. I love how you used the resist technique in your first spread! I was hesitant to use hot glue cause I'll get it everywhere, so I used gel medium which produced the same effect but with more control lol. But I love your spread!


I love your comments!
