Get Messy Season of Story Week 5

For the Season of Story over at the Get Messy Art Journaling community, I made a journal which I love and I am super proud of and then I left it at home when I went on holiday to England for two weeks.  I left it because I didn’t want it to get squashed or damaged or worse, ignored.  All of these things would  most likely have happened to it, so I am pleased I didn’t take it.

However, what also happened was that I didn’t do much of anything in the way of art journaling in my new journal for another couple of weeks afterwards.  It is a chunky little number and it needs to be filled!

This week I saw a bird egg which I decided to paint in order to capture the colour of it, then I searched my old photos for suitable candidates for the season of story.  At the same time I pulled out some old National Geographic magazines which I had recently bought at an estate sale and I began cutting out phrases and words which appealed to me.

The combination of all of these things resulted in the pages you see in this post and my journal is starting to fill up nicely.

I am unashamedly addicted to making found word poems from these old magazines.  I cut out lots of phrases and then put them together to form some poetic nonsense.

It is very therapeutic and I highly recommend it!

Happy Thursday x
