I’d like to announce a fun collaboration I’m doing: Messy Lists Art Journal Challenge
30 Days of Lists is a huge part of my life and lately I’ve been breaking out of my comfort zone of scrapbook-centric list books and including more art journal techniques. This started right before Caylee and Lauren of Get Messy Art Journal Challenge approached Amy and me about collaborating for the upcoming season of Get Messy Art Journal: Season of Lists.
That’s right! The duo behind Get Messy Art Journal are teaming up with 30 Days of Lists to host a 6-week creative challenge that is going to blow your socks right off!
We’re calling it Messy Lists!
How great is this going to be? I can continue to try new things and learn from an amazing community while also encouraging women to tell their right now story through lists.
This season starts on April 4th, so register today so you do not miss out on the prompts and fun.
I’m looking forward to this season because we’ll be mixing things up a bit and long-time Listers will feel right at home but challenged at the same time! If you’re a Get Messian, get ready for some “professional listers” to join in on the fun! Our team is looking forward to our communities coming together and getting to know each other…to be fair, we know several Lister/Get Messian folks, so we know our communities are meant to cross-over.
I’ll be using a spiral-bound upcycled hardcover book (blank pages inside) for my art journal for this season. I picked up some white gesso, acrylic paints, and crayons to, you know, get messy! I started making a few backgrounds in my journal using watercolors and I’m loving how this is going.
I plan on including collage, doodles, paint, and more in my pages as I try to break free from my usual scrapbook-style. Who knows, I might be inspired by my scrapbook supplies to include something in my art journal, too! It’s my art journal and I can do what I want :)
Registration is through the Get Messy website, you can choose to get a year-long membership, which gets you access to all the seasons, or you can pay $10 for a monthly membership. Their seasons last 6 weeks, so keep that in mind if you want to play along with Messy Lists and do not want to get the year-long membership.
Messy Lists begins April 4, 2016.
