Get Messy Week 7

Get Messy Week 7 by LaWhimsyThese pages are just so ME! The textures, the nature goodness, the Pink Squirrel ~ just everything about them is me and I really felt the flow as I created them.

Get Messy Week 7 by LaWhimsy page 1This first page may seem deceptively simplistic in it’s layout, however it took  a bit of tricky cutting and pasting to get the lines just so. I have a thing for old, weather-beaten and aged buildings and the stories their faded and worn walls hold, even as they crumble and become re-claimed by the wild earth around them. Listen closely and you may even get hints at what tales lay within this buildings silvered, wooden facade…

Get Messy Week 7 by LaWhimsy page 2This page is one of pure and utter happiness since not only is there a lovely, wooded bit of nature (I have been holding onto this scrap of beauty for ages now), but I added one of my darling squirrel drawings (in pink, of course, since nothing says whimsy quite like a pink squirrel does!) amid some free-hand cut branches. This little cutie is fast becoming one of my signature illustrations…

I only wish I could more accurately capture the fantastic texture and color she has, but alas, these phone pics will have to do for this week, though I suppose they did a well enough job since I still squee a bit at the sight of her (don’t you just love it when you tickle yourself with your creative?!). I can’t wait to see everyone else’s pages!
