Get Messy

Get Messy Week 12

Get Messy Week 12 by LaWhimsyMy art journal pages this week were quite enjoyable to create (having Murdoch Mysteries on on the background made it even better).

Get Messy Week 12 by LaWhimsy page 1The first page is a dreamy, winter-evoking piece (inspired by this darn Bomb Cyclone weather!). I drew the deer silhouette and then spent a good while shading it in just so. I adore layering and shading, so this piece was a delight and I think it turned out aces!

Get Messy Week 12 by LaWhimsy page 2The second page is a quote I can quite easily relate to, so I simply wrote it out (with as steady a cursive hand as I could manage with Nelly trying to sleep all over me…she really thinks that she is a lap dog, and I have yet to completely disabuse her of that notion). I then added the dots by coloring the eraser end of a pencil with various marker colors and stamping it around. Easy and cheerful, I think!
