About Me

Launched in 2017 Mega Awesome Messy Art (MAMA) is a site for crafty, enthusiastic parents and their children to find fun art based activities to try in the comfort of their home and to create memories which will last a lifetime!

So if you like the idea of quick simple art activities to do (and you don’t mind getting a little messy along the way) this is the place for you!

My name is Victoria Seal, I am a wife, a mum, a part-time Doctor and an enthusiastic arty experimenter!

I started this blog to offer ideas and support to those who want to complete art projects at home but, like I was in the beginning, are too nervous to do so.

I started experimenting by drawing round hands and feet, doing simple prints and letting my son explore different textures for himself. Then as my confidence grew I started venturing into crayons, stickers, paints, glitter (in moderation!), ceramics and beyond.

I am not taking credit for all the ideas I share being 100% original (I, as most parents know the Internet is the key to most things), but I will share step by step guides and helpful hints of tried and tested projects which have gained the “Seal of Approval” (along with a few mishaps and disasters along the way).

The biggest thing I have learnt so far on my ‘MAMA Journey’ is not to worry about the final product but to enjoy the experience of trying new things together. Trust me though, amongst all the smudged handprints and brown splodges will be the perfect art piece you will treasure forever!

So if you’re ready to start your very own ‘MAMA Journey’ then follow my blog, like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter (@megaawesomeMA) and Instagram.
