Messy Pages | A Guide to Mixed Media Art Journaling

I’m hoping a lot of you will remember that I prepared an online class earlier this year that is sold through Get Messy Art Journal. Well I thought I would give a bit of an update on the class, and share some of the amazing pages that have been made by my students.

For those who aren’t aware, my class Messy Pages takes you through the processes and techniques that I use to create mixed media art journal spreads. I explain my favourite tools and supplies as well as how I use them.

The class is structured so that it takes you through the steps I use when making a spread from start to finish. Starting with the basics; the tools and different media that I use, preparing pages and building pages from base up; to lessons about techniques, background building and through to the journaling that adds the finishing touch to your pages.

It is a class jam-packed with photos, videos and inspiration – and I’d love it if you joined me in creating some #messypages.

I’m going to share some of my favourite pages that have appeared in the #messypages feed on Instagram.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the lovely artwork these students have created. I honestly have to pinch myself every time I see someone has been inspired to make something beautiful after taking my class. It’s something I dreamed of doing for so long, and am so proud that I made it a reality.

If you have made artwork inspired by Messy Pages, please tag me in your work on Instagram as I’d love to be able to cheer you on, and admire your work.
