I DID finish the last two weeks of Get Messy Season of Lists… on time each week and posted on Instagram and Facebook… However, to be complete I show them here on my blog in this post (quite late!).
Here are my week 5 pages… The first is a photo and paper collage talking about my lucky day. Can you find the three fairies?
I took the materials for this one out of the trash… the prompt was “I am made up of”. I love the deconstruction of the phrase…
I am so inspired by… dolphins, joyous dolphin energy and my spirit dolphin Lucy.
This one was fun! I wrote a few of my favorite quotes by Matsuo Basho and with the exception of the image (found on the internet, printed on tracing paper) the page is done in makeup.
Believe it or not I had nothing for the prompt daydreams. So while I listened to one of the speakers on the Hay House World Summit I simply doodled.
Absolutely LOVE this page I did in the last week of #messylists. The prompt is obvious AND I used my own superimposed face to illustrate so I used an art prompt as well. Yep that’s my face on the clones from the series Orphan Black (btw awesome show and great lead actress, Tatiana Maslany).
This next one joined the prompt about peace and an art prompt using “penmanship”… (Ok, I did use a font!).
And next was a little upside down fun for this last week of #messylists and the prompt Home is Where… .
My life is so wonderful it was hard to come up with a list of luxuries…
My last page for this season of Get Messy Art Journal lists was a vision board, including the art prompt using hashtags. Some day I’d love to be free of hip pain! You can click on any of the photos to see them larger.
There is a two-week break now before the next season so I’ll have a welcome break and a build up of anticipation! Have a wonderful weekend my friends! And as always, thank you so much for tuning in and witnessing my creative growth as an artist.

What exactly is art journaling?
Ambiguous answer: whatever you want it to be! More specific answer: Art journaling is a notebook that you fill with drawings, paintings, thoughts, words, lyrics, photos, magazine cutouts and random ephemera from your life and events. It can be where you practice art techniques or sketch out big projects. It can be your journal where all things creative + all things emotional intersect. You can put in pretty things you find and want to keep or it can be where you collect and process through your deepest, darkest thoughts. It is where art and journaling meet.
