The Minimalist Art Journal – A Guest Teaching Job

The Minimalist Art Journal

Oh. My. Gosh. You guys, I am so excited to write this post. About a month or so ago, Caylee Grey emailed me and asked if I would write a guest lesson as part of her new art journaling class “The Minimalist Art Journal”. I was so excited when I opened that email I almost screamed at the top of my lungs. I love minimalist art, and writing a class has been on my to do list for some time.

The minimalist art journal

I knew immediately my lesson needed to be about water colour, it’s my all time favourite medium, especially for minimalist pages. So, Water Colour Backgrounds was dreamed up, and is now a reality. My lesson in the class will teach you how to make minimalist backgrounds using watercolour blending, layering and collage techniques. It’s loads of fun and includes a handful of videos made by me, including one on using blending to make a galaxy.

The Minimalist Art Journal class is launching on 1 December and I have one seat in the class to giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post, and visit my Facebook page using the link below and you will get two entries in the giveaway. I will be drawing the competition on 10am Saturday morning (Australian time). Good luck everyone.

    Wow congrats on the teaching spot! I bet you and Caylee together are super awesome. Gonna throw my name in the hat on this one, for sure! Goodness knows my art is the opposite of minimalist, so it definitely wouldn’t hurt to have some input.

    Ahh!! I am so terrible at minimal style art – especially in my art journals.
    This looks so amazing!

      Oh Elly, minimalist art is definitely an acquired taste. It used to be the only way I journaled, but something has happened recently and I fill every inch of the page.

    I love this style of art journaling – although I always tend towards a more eclectic/full/crazy style of things – So it would be awesome to challenge myself in something that is out of my comfort zone! I have dedicated 2017 to the year that I get back into journaling! xx This course sounds awesome!
