Let's Get Messy

Howdy! Wednesday has arrived and they say we might even have some sun in my little part of the planet. That would be good since we've had more dark and wet days than is usual for this time of year. It's starting to get to me.
I think this weather inspired me to make this clean up page. This page began with me using up a bit of left over blue paint, some stenciling from a stencil that I needed to put away, and then me stamping the eye several times. And all my additions were left over bits from my work table. Finally I stamped the quote on a scrap of graph paper and added that to the page.
This month's theme at Art Journal Journey
is vintage or modern. I am definitely going modern today.
Thanks to all of you who have joined in so far this month. I really appreciate your support.

And I am going to also link my page up to Art Every Day Month.
Thanks for visiting.

Let’s get messy, huh. That is probably going to be interpreted in a whole lot of different ways!

I wouldn't call this messy, I would call it abstract. It's a really fun entry for your theme at Art Journal Journey. I am really impressed with that eye. Repetition always speaks to me.

I like the eye peering through the blue gloom. Except today because the eyes noticed the brilliant sunshine. I hope the sun has reached you today. Have a good one.

Always good to get messy as your page demonstrates... great to see what can be done with some leftovers on a worktable, - the quote fits the page just perfectly!

Hope you get some sunshine today!

Gorgeous Art journal page Erika !! Love those colours, and love the eyes and the music paper, great !
Here, the weather is a little bit cold during the night, and windy today too, so Autumn is arrived !
