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"I went full elementary school mode w/ coloring!
(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 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!!
"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!
