art journaling 19

Hello & happy Thursday, folks!
Let’s get right into our wonderful Get Messy goodness, shall we?
My first page makes my heart sing. If my soul had a colour it’d be all of these ones below. Yes. Also, I think I want a tutu like this, and not just for Daisy bun.
My second page is a combination of watercolour hearts painted as a background pattern, followed by one of my favourites (hence the enamel word sticker) photos of my somewhat recent beach finds, some gesso on top for the awesome gesso effect, and some pen doodles/lines. Done deal. Keeping it simple, yo.

Even though the weather wasn’t what I would call warm, I couldn’t let that gorgeous fall tree opportunity pass me by, so I braved the Vancouver autumn cold (it’s not that bad, really, but it’s no California or Florida) and made a little sketch.
Thanks to everyone for your Instagram comments. Your kindness and support never ceases to amaze me.
And, that’s it for today! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking my pages.
Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practice our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal.

    • thank you, sweet Kathleen! that quote is actually just a paper cut out from some scrapbook paper scraps! But I agree, it does look like dynamo lettering! isn’t that crazy?

  1. So bright. Love your dynamo lettering. It takes me back to my chilhood when I had one but lacked the strength to squeeze it together enough to produce the letters. Your sketching is UHMAZING.

    • thank you, Sarah! that quote is actually just a paper cut out from some scrapbook paper scraps! But I agree, it does look like dynamo lettering! isn’t that crazy?

    • my motto for life is “always say yes to colour” because God knows rainy Vancouver can use it. Same goes for Seattle for you, so YES PLEASE, I’d love to see your colourful world. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh my gosh. Your soul and mine must match because those are the colors I love inside too. Although I’d probably have a few streaks of dark cause well that’s me too. AND WOW!! To that watercolor picture. Your watercolor skills amaze. Sign me up as a big fan. haha.

    • yeah, my colourful soul-sista-mate πŸ™‚
      and you’re so right, dark streaks WOULD have looked good there! good eye, good eye, my friend πŸ™‚

  3. Olya, Olya, Olya, these are AMAZING! The colourful page next to the love heart page gives the perfect contrast and I love it! Then you go and show your landscape page and I’m sitting here thinking, you are one amazinly talented gal Olya!

  4. That first page! That sketch! Those colours! The quote! Exclamation points!!!! You have so much talent, I’m envious! Have a great weekend! xo Bec

  5. So much beautiful color! Is that water color though? Mine NEVER come out that bright. I’m really jealous.

    I really love the juxtaposition of your two pages. The pattern vs the colored page is just lovely. Both pages are so happy too. I always smile when I see your pages Olya πŸ™‚
