03/10/16 - "Get Messy Habit" Week #6

It's Friday!
My Friday off...whoop-whoop!

And it's also my "Get Messy Habit" day!

This is week #6 that I have consistently posted an art journal creation of mine.
Which is/was the goal of "Get Messy Habit".
It took me a bit to find my groove, but I did it.

> I had started out posting a "random" page - Week 1
> Then I posted 2 pages that were inspired by (a) "Get Messy" prompts(s)/season - Week 2
   But then I considered that "cheating" and decided that "Get Messy Habit" creations should 
   be in addition to the prompt/season inspired creations 
>So then I posted another random page - Week 3 (this is also when I started blogging them as a
   separate project) Blog Post GMH Wk #3
>And another - Week 4 / Blog Post GMH Wk #4
>And yet another - Week 5 / Blog Post GMH Wk #5

And finally we are here today - Week 6.

I made 2 pages this week because I felt like I should make up for "cheating" on Week 2 (even though it wasn't intentional).
And also I had so much fun making the 1st page I wanted to make another.
"Got Abstract?"/"Abstract #2"
(And a couple of clips to hold my pages down for photographing since,my art journal is
a wreck - but a "happy", "well-loved" wreck!).
I went full elementary school mode  w/ coloring!
I haven't colored like that in a long time and it was not only fun but freeing!

A couple of Christmases ago I asked for and received an "adult" coloring book... No not that kind of "adult", get your mind out of the gutter, LOL... and some markers and I liked it at first but quickly got bored. The adult coloring books are very detailed and to me it was too much work.
I don't want to work when I'm coloring; that takes all the fun out of it!
So I will stick w/ this method instead.

Wow, I can't believe the 6 weeks are over already!!
Also over?
"Get Messy - Season of Happy"...
Although because I post my pages a week behind I will have some  "happy" pages to share next week.
Plus, I may go back and create for the prompts I haven't yet completed...
so hopefully there will be a lot more "happy" coming at you through out the year, both IRL and from my blog!

Oh and the end of "Season of Happy" means the start of another "Season".
I don't know what it is yet but I'll find out soon enough and you will too!

Before I leave I thought I would circle round back to "adult" and "coloring" w/ this funny little video from "Sex in the City"...


Hope you enjoy!


  1. Haha! Loved the SATC clip!

    Weird pet peeve- I hate when people call them adult coloring books. They're just coloring books! Nothing 'adult' about them. Coloring books don't need ages on them. I have a love-hate relationship with the really detailed ones. They're a great way to chill while waiting somewhere or listening to a podcast, but sometimes they're just too detailed and it becomes more stressful than relaxing.

  2. you can totally make that into scrapbook paper! :) Love the abstracts!

  3. LOL to that SATC clip!!! LOVING your pages!! Awesome colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
