Get Messy Art Journaling. Season of Contrast Week 1.

For this first week of Season of Contrast at Get Messy I have taken contrast to the extreme and used only black and white! I have enjoyed working with black ink, black gesso and white gesso so far, with a little addition of Posca pen to make the dots on the ombre spread and the details on the next spread.

For sketchbooks, I  used my giant Moleskine which opens A2 size, medium Moleskine which is A3 when open and my mini Moleskine which is A5 open.  All the sizes!

I really like the small gelli prints of fern leaves in my mini book.

Prints were made on vintage dictionary paper and dry wax paper as well as directly into my sketchbooks.

I think I will leave some of these prints and blots alone and some I will work into pages in my art journal.

Using black and white was such fun, no pressure to get colours organized, just go for it and embrace the contrast!

Happy Thursday x
