Art Journal Noob

I saw an art journal page on Instagram at the beginning of January. I loved the idea so I made an art journal page.

Art Page Number One... #onelittleword for me for 2016... Blossom

Then I made six more art journal pages and shared them on Instagram. And then I joined an online art journaling group, Get Messy Art Journal… and a new season of inspiration and expression starts with them on Monday, Feb 1. It’s been a whirlwind romance!

As part of the Get Messy group, I’ll post my weekly projects on Fridays. As today is Friday I’m posting what I’ve done on my own this month just experimenting.


Then I learned about #blackoutpoetry.

For my second one I learned about #blackoutpoetry.


And it's awesome inverse colors!

Loved living with this thought for a few days, not so happy with the outcome.

Not fun to live with this word for days, but really like the outcome.

Love everything about this one... my spirit animal Bear.

Used my own colored pages and zentangles for this busy piece.

This last one I made this week. Hubby had just left to go out-of-town for work for three days… and the power went off in our motorhome… (long story but basically a knock on the head from Spirit)  I did rig up one extension cord for my little heater and a work light for those three days. I did most of this double page during the day when I could tell what color I was using! Anyway, I was feeling distraught that first day and decided to find ’59 rich wonderful words’ that were about me. It ended up all over the place in energy… it has more than my RV did!

See the little cocktail umbrella the cartoon me is carrying?

I’m excited to begin more guided art journaling work next week. It helps to have a focus and a deadline, not to mention some tutorials!

See you later friends and have a good weekend!

take care

    Love that bear page best too. What I love about arts journaling is how free it is with experimenting and we grow in the process. So much to learn.

    I’ve only just now started thinking about Get Messy for the year. I’ve had a few set backs but I’m now ready to go. Your pages have inspired me so much. Really well done. Like everyone else I adore the bear!!

      My goodness, thank you sooooo much Deb for the compliment. I love feeling inspired so it is cool to be inspiring. 😉 Can’t wait to get to know you better as we progress through the year.
