Art Collective

Hello! My name is Anika Lacerte of The Handcrafted Story. I’m excited to share my first post as Creative Team member. I created a template called the Art Collective, which is a collaborative art project. All Get Messy members are invited to use this template to make art and share it with the community. Be creative: get out your paints, photos, pens, stencils, sewing machine, stamps, gold foil, collage papers, crayons, glitter, typewriter, whatever you want! And if you’re a geek, like me, print out a few copies and make different versions. I printed on thick, white cardstock, but you can print on whatever paper you want.

Print out this worksheet and get creative.

Here are three versions I made so you can see what I mean:
