Hello lovelies, how is everyone doing? I have been head and heart deep into the Rituals lessons as I want to finish them all before my move in 6 weeks (eek!). In between filming and editing these, I have been finishing up my Season of Play altered book (more on that Wednesday) and thinking ahead to the Season of Story.

I feel like this Season will be so interesting because the idea of Sory is at the meeting point of many interests for me: documenting, travel, self-exploration, sketching, journaling. I’m really looking forward to diving in, especially as these are the summer months and we’ll be travelling (as well as moving), so I am sure to have lots to document.

Speaking of summer travels, I am considering using the Traveller’s Notebook that you see here for documenting these. It has a plain insert, a sketching insert and a grid one. I’m looking forward to trying this format out. I just love that cover and can’t wait to see it scuffed and worn from being well loved.

I will also bring my Healing Circle journal as I am looking forward to dive deeper into this project once I have finished filming Rituals. I will also be with family which will probably trigger some elements that will need to be addressed. I will be filling that watercolor palette with my favorite colors from different sets that I have. I plan on writing which set each half-pan comes from underneath it so that I can return it to its box once I am back. I’ve never done something like this but I think it will be awesome!

Finally, that white cover is set to become my Season of Story journal. I’m running a poll on my Instagram Stories about this. The spine of the book is very thin, I would only have room for one signature. So I wonder if I should do the one signature journal with 16 individual pages, or take out the spine and use the Coptic Stitch of the French Link stitch to build a journal with more space to art. If you have a minute, pop onto my IG profile to let me know!

If you are not a member of Get Messy but you would like to join us for the Season of Story, you may consider buying a Season’s Pass. This is a great value because you get access to 2 months’ worth of tutorials and prompts. These are an awesome way to kick start your creativity, whether you prefer writing or art journaling. The best part for me – and this is why Get Messy is such a big part of my life – is that you get access to a community of like-minded people who will encourage you and hold you up and inspire you for a whole Season. All of this at a super reasonable price, too.
