I tried to make painting with a limited number of paints. First one was created with 4 colors. Second one with just one and glitter on top of petals. It some previous layers and bleeded through when I used glitter. I like the look of it.



SEASON OF ART WEEK 5

Honestly I've been struggling with this season. I feel like I need a little break. I've been doing Get Messy Habbit since Season of Love in 2015. I feel like I'm not excited about the pages I was doing for this season. I'm starting my break earlier and these are my last pages for this season.


SEASON OF ART WEEK 4

I created this self portrait for Week 4 of Season of Art of Get Messy Artjournal.

I've never done anything like this. I really liked it and I think I want to do more portraits like this.


SEASON OF ART WEEK 3

This week of Get Messy was about acrylics. I love creating intuitive paintings with acrylic paint. My favourite thing is to use it on plywood. The paint goes really smooth and I can make as many layers as I want. Some of the paintings I created have been changes into something differnt with time.

I created a fun set of acrylics. Being a fan of Twin Peaks, I made it my theme.

SEASON OF ART 101 WEEK 2

“Art is the most intense form of individualism that the world has ever known.”
– Oscar Wilde

This week of Get Messy Artjournal is about Texture. I followed a great tutorial by Riet. I created page using different bits of paper and different types of paints. I used acrylics, neocolor pastels, silver foil, tissue paper.


EASY BOOKBINDING






I started using handbound journals a while ago. I think they are the most convenient for me. I can choose my own paper and the size of the journal. Lately I've been in love with Canson paper which is very smooth. I use a lot of gouache in my journals so that's important! Also I like the size of it when I fold it.

I photographed the steps of making a new journal.


I'm usuing cardboard as my covers. Canson black paper as my signature. Book binding tape. Random black thread and a bigger size niddle.
Covers can be made out of any paper you like preferably a bit thicker than the paper you are going to use in the journal.


GET MESSY SEASON OF ART 101

This season of getmessy artjournal is about going back to basic and playing with different mediums.

I was very much inspired by gouache tutorial by Vanessa.  Gouache is my favourite medium at the moment. I just love how versatile it is. It can be used as watercolor if you add more water. It can be used with less water and then it becomes very smooth and extrememly matte when it dries.

I wish I could do faces better!


Inspired by a painting I saw this week .

 Inspired by Paterson.
