Art Journaling, Get Messy

Get Messy Thursday. Art Journal pages.



Two bright and colorful journal spreads this week!

I picked up a pile of old National Geographic magazines free from the library and I used images from the magazines on both spreads.

The honey comb in the top spread is from the magazine and the background rice field in the bottom spread.

I tried out my new stencil from Stencil Girl in the pink pages, I love how stencils add to a page either as a base layer or on top of everything. I must admit when I added the drippy ink, I wished I hadn’t, but I carried on and I like how it turned out.

The green page is mainly acrylic paint and fortune cookie wrappers and fortunes on top of National Geographic pages and a page from an old dictionary.  Lots of layers on this page.

I hope you have had a creative week too.  The new Get Messy season starts next month, so if you are interested in joining, pop over and see what it is all about.

Happy Thursday.

    Love these pages Clare, esp the use of the fortune cookie wrappers. I got an amazing portable easel with acrylic paints for my birthday (thanks Mum!) and was thinking how I could use other materials in the mix for texture – fabric etc. Your pages have totally inspired me! Xx
