get messy art journal

This week for the Get Messy Art Journal I tried hand-cutting letters out of a magazine page (“Dwell” is my One Little Word of the year). I also drew lines across the other page and wrote out the verse that relates to my word (Psalm 91:1).

I used Scotch Craft Stick and my favourite scissors.


I have really likes Lisa Congdon’s hand lettering, which is what I tried to imitate in this project.


Get Messy is an art journal challenge 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 will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal.


Art Journaling




I am participating in the 31 Days, which is a blogging challenge in October organized by The Nester. I have chosen to (attempt) to write Monday-Friday during October on the topic of art journaling.
