It is the first week of a new season for the Get Messy art journaling community that I’m a part of and I’m excited to be getting some creative time in again. I’m doing something a little different this season.
Instead of using a blank moleskin notebook, I am using scrapbook cardstock I have (because I have an excessive amount) and I’m starting with those. It’s changing the look of my style completely and gives me a nice base to work from.
Here are my pages this week:
I have never done a single-line drawing but it was really fun to try. I had to tell the perfectionist in me to let go and enjoy the process. While it’s not my usual style, I loved the challenge and trying something new. I thought it would be fun to stamp with a coffee bean on the page and hoped it would produce a clear image of the bean, while it didn’t, I just went with it and I like what it added to the page.
My goal is to complete at least one page each week for the next six weeks so I’m happy I was able to do three this week and get some of my ideas on paper.
Thanks for stopping by!
