While I liked the simplicity it just didn't feel finished. I added some of the new sparkly washi my husband got me for my birthday and some paint splatters. Much better. Maybe a little like the awesome @berberrz whose work I love. #creativebuggetsmessy #creativitytakescourage #wildflowerdreamartjournal
I've been wanting to play with a neutral background so today's one word prompt was a great opportunity. #creativebuggetsmessy 19/20

#creativebuggetsmessy day 16/30 scrap collage to represent something meaningful that I'm thinking about. I pulled scraps from my pile and the perfect ones came out. Just celebrated my 40th, thinking a lot about the calendar and what to focus on given limited time, pondering the water and the sky, trying to not over plan so I can enjoy the moment, plus celebrating 15 months without drinking! #wildflowerdreamartjournal #gmartjournal #gmseasonofseasons

I had an absolutely amazing 40th birthday this weekend. Camping with my family and looking up at the stars. The #creativebuggetsmessy prompt to make a galaxy was perfect. 14/30. #wildflowerdreamartjournal The papers are shiny papers from my birthday cupcakes!
Today's page is a disaster. I started out  trying to express feeling emotions in your gut. I didn't love it. I tried muting it down with gesso (clear and regular mixed together). That didn't work at all. So I painted it. Acrylic with a stencil didn't work as well today. Ah well. I learned some things that don't work. I ordered texture paste today, lol. I'll make something more tomorrow after this dries. #creativebuggetsmessy 13/30
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." #creativebuggetsmessy 12/30. I didn't have texture paste so I used acrylic paint on its own. #wildflowerdreamartjournal #gmseasonofseasons
"When a flower doesn't bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower" I made this one for #getmessyseasonofseasons #gmartjournal #wildflowerdreamartjournal
