Get Messy Art Journal: Week 1

It's me Tiffany!
& I'm getting MESSY!
Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaaah! *throws handful of glitter*

Today is unlike any other day. Today is thee day I share one of my new-found crafting obsessions!
You can see my #GetMessyArtJournal pages here or on my IG.

The Get Messy Art Journal Project!
What's that you ask? Don't worry! I'm going to tell you. One iridescent piece of glitter at a time!

The Get Messy Art Journal challenge created by two fabulous lady friends of mine named Lauren Hooper and Caylee Grey.

It's a creative space where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practice our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal

Without further ado I introduce my first #GETMESSY pages...

 I was inspired by Olya and her amazing watercolor art journal pages. I ran to my local Walgreens drugstore and bought a Crayola watercolor kit (the basic one with 8 colors).

Unearthing my acrylic paint brushes, a drawing pad, and some foam letter/symbol stamps that I purchased years ago from my favorite crafting store Michaels, I took my small mountain of crafting supplies out to my backyard. It was just the right amount of sun per cloud ratio where I could feel toasty but not be burnt to a crisp! I sat on my patio under the umbrella so as not to aggravate a lupus flare/or malar rash due to sun exposure. 

I took my Canson drawing pad and decided to recreate it "Get Messy" style! & ta daaaaahhh! There you have it. I used watercolors for the background and acrylic paints for the stamps. My favorite part is the watercolor splashes across the page giving it that "messy" vibe.

This quote has always resonated with me. To find that person who accepts you just as you are...flaws and all. It's not just a Beyonce song, it's REAL. There are people on this earth who will  love YOU for you. Individuals who see your imperfections as magically crafted snowflakes, as extra frosting on a cake, or extra fries at the bottom of their Happy Meal. It is my wish and hope that YOU find people like this in your life. Don't despair, it will come when you least expect it. So don't go searching, let them find you. Be patient. Enjoy life as it comes, relish each moment. Live in the NOW. Then one day, like a deer in headlights, you WILL FIND your people & they will caress each imperfection as a gift bestowed upon them, goddess like.

Hugs & Glitter,

Tiffany Marie
