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.

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.

  1. How exciting! This class sounds like a perfect fit for you Tanyalee. I’d love to be in the draw for this because minimalist would be a great way for me to go next year balancing creativity and study! So happy for you that you are entering this creative /teaching phase! Congratulations !

    1. Thank you lovely Emily. You might be able to get in before the study starts and make some beautiful minimalist pages. xx

  2. 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.

    1. There are quite a few Get Messy ladies contributing to this class so it will guaranteed to be jam-packed with goodness.

    1. 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.

  3. I’m so excited about this class and about all the artists / teachers that I’ve just followed on Instagram! Thx for the giveaway opportunity. Good luck to everyone!

    Thank you for this chance!

  5. OMG, how exciting is this? You are such a busy bee! 🙂 Love minimalism in art. I think it conveys the feeling in the cleanest best way possible sometimes. Excited!

  7. I love love love your style so much, it would be amazing to learn from you! Combined with all of the other amazing artists, how awesome?!

  8. 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!
