POST 31: THE END OF A SEASON: GET MESSY ART JOURNAL BLOG HOP

To mark the end of the season of love, #getmessyartjournal has organised a blog-hop. I, myself have never taken part in a blog-hop before so I'm eager and full of anticipation to what it might hold!

The subject of this post is all about the season we have just completed, as a design collective. Get Messy seasons run for 6 weeks so the season of love was from the beginning of the year, to this week as a finale and we will get our new season the beginning of April! 

During this season, the prompts asked to look at the things, people and moments in our lives that we love and in my opinion, it was a great topic to start of a new year. 


For the blog-hop we were asked to share our favourite pages from this season that we have made...
