About Get Messy
I'm excited to learn about Get Messy
We’d love for you to take our Orientation. It’s the best way to get an overview of Get Messy in as little time as possible.
How do I make the most of my time at Get Messy?
Unless you take action, Get Messy will not give you any value except maybe a warm fuzzy feeling for a few minutes.
Get Messy is the catalyst but YOU are the fire. It takes some stepping outside of your comfort zone, but it’s worth it.
Want to know what to make? Go to the library, search by your skill or by a supply and create the third lesson that comes out.
Want to know how to make friends? Check out your community options. If you’re still stuck, message one Messian and tell her something nice.
Where do I find motivation to art journal?
We’ll leave you with these really important words:
Motivation is not a source, it’s a result of action.

Nurturing your tribe
What are Get Messy's community rules?
They’re outlined in our Manifesto.
What happens if I break any rules?
We’re here to facilitate an amazing community experience in your art journey. That being said, we’re here in order to protect this safe space. If you break these guidelines or commit community vibe killers, we reserve the right to cancel your membership at anytime, without refund. When you joined, you agreed to our Terms, and Manifesto.
What are the "rules" for the #getmessyartjournal hashtag?
Feel free to share any art journal pages you are making under this hashtag, they do not have to be only pages made for Get Messy! The more the merrier, lets all be inspired by each other, ok?!
I'm sharing but no one is commenting 🙁
At Get Messy we believe in giving, giving, giving. Receiving comes as a nice addition. If you consistently check out the #getmessyartjournal hashtag and visit other artists’ pages, and leave thoughtful comments on your favourite pages… well the universe is just going to respond in kind.
How do I dig into the Get Messy community?
You can find options for finding your tribe over here.
There are always new and exciting ways to connect with fellow Messians. Check the Dashboard announcements for opportunities for mentorship, accountability, community chats, mail swaps, charity projects and more.
You can also chat to someone directly, ask in the forums, leave kind comments on Instagram, and cheer others on.
How can I hang out with other Messians live?
Be sure to check the Announcements in your Dashboard for upcoming live events. Alternatively, we have a Zoom room where you can either join an already established hangout, or create your own.
