My first ever season of Get Messy Art Journal has started and I couldn't be more excited! It's week 1 of Season of Dreams and I'll be honest and put it out there - I'm struggling. Just because dreams is such an elusive topic and I haven't had the most vivid or happy dreams lately. But I always say: if you can't work for the prompt, make the prompt work for you.
So, that's what I've been doing this week. I was interpreting the feelings and emotions I had after waking up in the morning, rather than actual dreams. It has worked fine for me and I felt really creative most of the time. So, I guess, it's a win then! :)

This was the first page I created for the Season of Dreams. It was made to represent my idea of dreams in general. To me, they are a whole new world within you. Every night when you have a dream, you only so slightly open the mystical curtain. Good and bad, happy and scary, the dreams then pour out into your world. For one night the two worlds become one and you no longer know which one is real...
