I show T my pages and announce, “This is my self portrait”

Get Messy : An Art Journal Challenge | 02 // Caylee Grey

You can see my pages here or larger versions (and unpublished pages) in my Flickr gallery.

Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal

    I’m in love! With your page, not your husband ;)
    I had a similar idea but then didn’t know how to do it since I somehow had it in my head that we shouldn’t use any photos (only when I had finished my pages I discovered that they just shoudln’t be of ourselves..duh),

    After the week you’ve had honey I think you’re amazing to have even thought of your journal. xxx Hope things are on the up and up for you guys. I know from experience that there surely isn anything worse. As far as what you’ve created…I love it, as always. xxx

    So sweet! I love these pages so much – and I love his reaction when he saw the pages!! Gorgeous layout and composition and LOVE that quote – I’ve never heard it before. I’m definitely adding it to my favorite quote notebook. :)

    I asked this question at Carson’s Blog, AKA “Pine and Plum”, but she directed me to you for an answer…
    I have been stalking you and all the other “Get Messy” Crew and I am loving and being inspired by all your wonderful creations! So inspired that I too created a page for the August prompt. I have a question though: I s the “Get Messy” hash tag only for those officially in the group? The reason I ask is I was wanting to upload my picture on my personal IG and use the hash tag but I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to. If you could let me know I would be grateful! Thanks! And keep up the great work!!!
