02/01/16 - I'm Getting Messy

I have been so busy and thus so behind as far as blogging!

But I wanted to make time to share this.

Many moons ago I shared w/ you some pages I made for an art journal group called "Get Messy":
Who Am I,   Adventure,  Gratitude,  One Word.

I had a great time following their prompts when they were free, but then they changed the program and it required a membership fee.
No worries...
I get it, it's a business.
But I hadn't had enough experience w/ them to decide if I wanted to pay for a membership...
also remember, I am the self-appointed "Queen of Unfinished Projects".
I recently (within the past 6 months) discovered and started following them and some of their Creative Team on IG and I was really inspired again, not only to join but to really get into my art journaling!
I decided that I wanted to join.
I looked into it and saw that it was temporarily closed to new members.
Darn it!
Eventually they launched a "new and improved" version of their program and when pre-registration opened I saw that they raised the membership price...
Again, I get it, it's a business...
But as the "Queen of Unfinished Projects" I couldn't justify the cost... not without more experience.
So I was REALLY bummed about not being able to join.

Fast Forward a few weeks and one of the "Get Messy" Creative Team peeps that I follow on IG was having a giveaway.
The prize? A year long membership to the program!
So I entered, thinking there was no way I would win...
But, yes, you guessed it... I did!
Yay me!!!!!!

So I am now a "Get Messian" as they call us!

I wanted to share this w/ you not only because I'm excited but because I will be sharing lots of art journal pages that will be inspired by "Get Messy" and I wanted you to be aware beforehand what it was all about.

I have already created 4 art journal pages inspired by the program (and it just opened on February 1st).
But I need to get my butt in gear and photograph and upload them!! <--- Bad girl!

I will be doing that soon and when I do I will share them w/ you.
Excited about this new journey/experience!
