I’m always a little sad when a season comes to an end at Get Messy. This lasts for about five seconds, however, before the excitement of a new season kicks in! And the season that has begun today is all about my favourite thing in the whole world – story.
Each season this year we are working in special journals dedicated to that particular season. This time around, we are hand binding our own journals. I made my journal using the long stitch from the Basic Bookbinding class with Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd.
The cover is made from an Anthropologie bag (they do the best bags!). The handles make perfect book closings. And I strengthened the inside of the cover with more pieces from their wonderful bags.
I will probably add to the cover as the season progresses, but for now this evocative design feels like the perfect jumping off point for telling some of my stories.
My vision for this coming season is to tell my own personal story in as many different ways as possible. I know that the prompts and tutorials together with the inspiring art from the whole Get Messy community will help me to explore many different approaches to telling my story.
My creative life has been so enhanced and enriched by being a part of this incredible community. If you’re not already a member of Get Messy Art Journal, why not sign up for the coming season? Here’s a peek at some of the incredible things this season has to offer:
