Lately

I am thinking about a whole redo of my space here, so that’s why it’s been a bit quiet on here lately. Also I am working on a artjournal/self finding sideproject right now. My head and mind are weary and reckless. 

Colour Circle: The pink journal

This journal was started by Sasha and passed Stèphanie, before it reached me. (I am sorry for the bad quality photos. Wintersun is hard and my camera has problems with taking pink as it is). I got so giddy, when I saw the lovely coversleave and the beautiful cover itself. Pastel pink is always so…

Colour Circle: The blue journal

The blue journal was started by Rose and reached me as the second artist. Blue is one of my favourite colours right now, so it was an easy turn for me in this one. Left my mark in paynes grey, which is one of my favourite colours and it is kind of a blue, a…

Colour Circle: The white journal 

Disclaimer: this project is a shameless ripoff of something a few other get messys are doing, because we loved the idea so much! I am part of a small group of amazing ladies creating travelling journals that base on one colour. Each one of us started a journal for one colour and the others will…

Artjournaling: What I am up to 

My head has far too many tabs open. While my first semester is nearly finished, which just one oral test left, I am juggling a lot of church project work, the start of kindergarten for my son and the nasty cold he brought home for all of us. But, that’s not enough. I have a…

Emporementzine

I had the honor to work on a zine with the Get Messy Zine Squad. The theme of the zine was Emporement and it was dedicated to Judith.  Here are the pages I made: The pink tag and the washitape was put on the journal by Julia, and I decided to use it on the background…

Giftartjournal: wine

I made another mini journal to give away as a present. This time for my husband’s cousin, our best man at the wedding. I was picked to surprise him with a Christmas present at the big family Christmas party and because he studies „something with wine“, I knew I had to make him an artjournal…

2017

And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.  Meister Eckhart 2017- to new starts. To not only making plans and decisions, but also to daring actually doing those things.  Dare- my word for 2017. Not worrying and overthinking, just trying and doing.  Dare- to not make…

Giftartjournal: musical hits 

One of my New Year’s resolution is making more artjournales to give away as presents to friends and family. Because it’s never too early to start New Year’s resolutions I made two artjournales to give as Christmas presents. This one was for my oldest friend, with whom I not only share many elementary school memories,…

Sarahsein: Resümeeziehen

Und dann sitzt man wieder da und fragt sich, ob man nicht alles falsch macht. Ob die Entscheidungen, die man getroffen hat, die richtigen waren. Ob man nicht zu unaufmerksam ist, zu selbstbezogen, zu genervt, zu gelangweilt, zu verletzt, zu traurig. Hat man sich das Leben so vorgestellt? Wir haben alle nur ein Leben, leben…

Artjournaling: Totems- animals 

Right now I am struggling with so many emotions. Sadness, frustration, guilt, anger, helplessness. I am in a stage in life and my art, where I feel like someone pulled out the rug from under me.  I figured it would be the perfect time to take a class to put deeper meaning into my art…

Artjournaling: Get Messy season of dreams III

In the middle of the last weeks of the season of dreams I got some really bad and heartbreaking news and at first i thought, I wouldn’t finish the season, but I found, that artjournaling, once again, helped me in really hard and tearful times. I just created pages that showed how my „dreams“ got…
