I can’t really remember pre-Get Messy anymore. It feels like I’ve been involved forever (even though I wasn’t around at the very start.) But almost instantly after joining, I became more creative, and more motivated to create and most importantly (for me) I met and connected with a group of the loveliest, truly like minded people for what felt like the first time ever. That, for me, made – and continues to make – the biggest difference and is the best thing about Get Messy.

Before I joined Get Messy Art I doubted whether I would have time for it and whether I was worth it or not. My creativity was sporadic. I started doing one spread a month for my bujo and my first 100 Day Project, which is where I heard about the Get Messy Art community and immediately joined. I was looking for like-minded people (messy artists) and some guidance.

The Get Messy Art community is a place where I feel very safe to talk about my frustrations and my reflections on my art. I don’t feel judged, I feel empowered!

Ana

The results that I have seen in my art and personal growth since I joined Get Messy are enormous. My art has become more meaningful. I’ve learned to let go of expectations, search for the messy middle, and embrace the process. Because of the art habit that I’ve created for myself, I feel more balanced in my personal life.

The part that I most enjoy about being a Messian is to learn and communicate with other people who love art journaling as much as I do. The emails and support I receive are always very helpful and are a reminder to create.

Anouk

When I started, I wanted to be like the big kids and tried to make pages like TLee and Misty. It took me a while but I started to move into my own thing and style and I realized (I can’t say ‘soon’ because it took a good amount of time and work) that I am not your traditional art journaler. I love most of what I create and I wouldn’t be doing it at all if it wasn’t for Get Messy Art and the constant encouragement to keep going and improving.

Joining Get Messy Art was the first time spending money online (I don’t think I’d bought any online classes back then), so I was debating with myself for a tiny bit, but made the plunge and I’m so glad I did! If I’m ever in a creative rut there’s always other Messians and the messy archive to get me making anyway.

I tend to think through my art journal pages more, and I usually have some kind of intention when making it (even if it’s just to relax and have fun). I’ve also tried new things and enjoyed learning new skills.
