Onto week 4 of this season of Adventure! This week’s prompts were especially great, and I really tried to go the opposite direction of last week’s dark, busy page. You klnow when you’re working and humming along, then have a sudden “aha!” moment? That was how the idea of the vellum overlay came to be. I LOVE how it looks. I wasn’t really into the page before because the navy blue paint was too harsh, too much contrast for the page. But this vellum softened it right up and made it a great background.
I think my favourite part of this layout is my illustration of this girl. It turned out better than I had hoped, haha. I just traced over a magazine cover to get it done fairly quickly.
I won’t be around next week as my family is going on vacation, but I do have a post rigged up with some other pages I’ve done outside of the Get Messy prompts. If you ever want to see more of my work, and more often than once a week, I post almost daily on Instagram and would love to see you over there!
And as always, if you want to see more of the other Get Messians journal pages just click on the link below to find them!
