Get Messy || art journaling 22

Hello, lovely people.
Get Messy Thursday is here. And today we all show our takes on this month’s prompt, created by yours truly. I have to say I was taken aback by such positive response and feedback for the prompt idea. I’m so very happy that many people have found it so dear and close to their hearts.
So, let’s get to it.
Journaling challenge:
Gratitude. What are you grateful for? What aspects of your life you’re thankful for, that you might be overlooking while being busy?
Here is my page. It is actually a page from my 2012 art journal, but it’s what gave me the idea for this month’s prompt to start with. I read all the things I was grateful for then and they’re still the same now, all 10 of them 🙂

Use visual examples for at least three things you’re grateful for. Photos/doodles/magazine cut outs/stickers/anything.. SHOW us your gratitude.
And here is my visual gratitude page from this year. I’m grateful for my amazing and supportive husband, for our little rituals, for living near the ocean, and last but not least for the sunny Vancouver days.

She has a cute Etsy shop that you should check out 😉IMG_8647.JPG
And here are the two pages together.IMG_8645.JPG
I also have some news. Unfortunately, I will be leaving Get Messy as of the end of this month, so this is my very last post. 🙁 With 2015 being extremely busy both travels and projects-wise I think it’s best for me to re-evaluate some of my commitments and projects. I always want to be able give 100% when I work on something and lately I found myself unable to do that with Get Messy art journals.
I absolutely loved working with all the creative ladies for the last 5 months and will forever cherish all of our Get Messy memories, Skype chats, as well as the encouraging comments on my blog posts. I still plan to do some art journaling and I’ll try to share it on my blog from time to time.
Thank you so much to everyone who has expressed words of encouragement and well wishes. Your kindness never goes unnoticed.

Get Messy || art journaling 20

Hello hello and happy Thursday,
Here are the two pages I’m excited to share with you today.
First page is dedicated to my most favourite productivity land: this magical place called Tomorrow 😉
IMG_7966.JPGSecond page came about slowly, with no clear goal of what was going to happen. First was the watercolour background, followed by some script words across the page (that. took. forever.), then a photo of the flowers from a local market. In the end I knew it would be a perfect fit for a Heidi Swapp chipboard LOVE I was hoarding. so I pushed myself to stop saving it and just use it, which I did.
I don’t know about you, but I just love the way this page turned out 😉
IMG_7967.JPGAnd here are the two pages together.IMG_7965.JPG
That’s all for this week. Don’t forget to visit the pages of other ladies and say hi.
Happy Creative Weekend, friends!
