The examination or observation of one’s own mental and emotional processes.

Welcome to the Season of Introspection. We are excited turn inward for this season to investigate our innermost thoughts and feelings. We know this may seem scary to those of you who are guarded or shy but know this is a safe community and how much you share is always up to you. We would love to walk, hand in hand, with you on this journey. But don’t worry too much, like always, the prompts have plenty of interpretation opportunities and they have a lot of variety this season so there is room for all comfort levels here. So get ready to dive in with us for Introspection!

EXCITING! We would love for you to alter a book with us for this season. We did this last year and it was a huge success and radically rocked many of our creative processes, in the best way. We would love for you to join us, but know that working in your own preferred format is perfect acceptable.

See this post about how to choose a book and get it prepped for the season of Introspection.

EEK! We can’t wait to see what you guys choose. Post a photo of your book on Instagram and use the tag #getmessyartjournal #seasonofintrospection so we can see it. If you have questions, please ask them in the forums as SO many of our art journalers are really passionate about altering books and will certainly be more than happy to help you!
