GET MESSY 2016 | MUSIC | WEEK 4

This week our prompts started with a quote by Langston Hughes

 'Life is for the living.Death is for the dead.Let life be like music. And death a note unsaid' 

I loved this so much that I pretty much forgoed the actual prompts and based my pages around this quote.

- collage & tombows


- tombows & ink


- collage & stencil


I really enjoyed deconstructing this quote into four separate pages, as well as having consistent themes on each one!

COLOR CHAOS | GOLD

I got my mojo back for this gold journal. I absolutely loved the challenge of the colour (I have one gold paint and one gold sharpie) as well as being able to fill all the empty spaces left. 


The journal, as it came to me


I filled in my name and added the sentiment on the left




pretty sure this is Karen's page, I just added the lines for some extra drama


Me on the left, Lauren on the right


I added the moth on the left and the page on the right is all mine



Using some Vanessa quotes... 


I added to the triangle doodle page


This was such a powerful picture, I decided to leave it as it was in the magazine


Gold in the jungle 



Again, adding to Karen's lettering withe th V stickers and the ink/ acrylic starburst 




i struggled with the red colour here so created a pop out into Lauren's OITNB illustration



Scraps to be friends with Lauren's bear coaster



A little cat friend for Lauren's



Again, working next to Lauren!

 Lauren (Lilac)
Karen (Blue)

We each started a journal in a specific colour and it gets sent around the world to each participant to continue that colour theme. My own journal is black and is back in my possession now, filled with everyone of these artists amazing work! I'll be sharing the complete final thing very soon !

GET MESSY 2016 | MUSIC | WEEK 3

My post for this week is late... I actually made my pages on time but totally ran out of time to take photo's and blog! I was crazy busy this week and struggled to find time to empty my to-do list brain to concentrate on my pages. That being said, I am just happy that I could steal a few minutes with my journal. 






Your Way
- acrylic, collage & pen

This is the soundtrack to my life, my anthem.

GET MESSY 2016 | MUSIC | WEEK 2

Week 2 of the season of music was all about nostalgia. I love this type of subject and music is something that can be so evocative of an era in your life. All my songs referenced this week are from my teenage / university years, a weird, embarrassing but exciting time! 

My art journal this week was mainly my copy of Oh comely as I was travelling yesterday for work on the train. oh Comely is my new favourite magazine obsession, I just want to live inside it.


Smiths
- magazine & pen

Not even ashamed to say I only learnt about the Smiths from the film 500 days of Summer. 


Bruises 
- magazine, pen & photoshop

Anyone else remember this i pod advert song ?! 


Into You
- pen & photoshop

I cheat a little here as this song is pretty recent but i know teenage me would have loved it. Paramore were introduced to me by a friend at University and I just obsessed over them for a good few years. 


Judy
- ink & tombows

This was the first song I brought on i Tunes !!

DAILY MOLESKINE 2016 | SPRING

Even though I have been actively participating in this project, I haven't actually shared anything since March! Ironically, life just got in my way. I will try and be better at this but for now... enjoy a snapshot of my spring (April and May)

I've found this journal to be a fun place to try out monthly challenges. April was all watercolour pages because I was taking part in Torrie's first #foxandwatercolour challenge and for August I am participating in #augustwithajournal. I also incorporated my 100 day project (#100daysoffelttips) into this journal as well. A year long project is tough so these external prompts really help me stay in the same book and give me a bit more inspiration and even direction!

June and July to come soon!
