Dive into a month of art journal prompts with Lauren and Caylee, the enigmatic founders of Get Messy Art Journal. In this 30-day challenge, they’ll lead you through a series of prompts to inspire your creativity and help you get your thoughts, feelings and art onto the page. Learn their favorite techniques for creating vibrant pages full of textures, layers and lettering, and discover the magic of journaling about the ups and downs of everyday life. With daily prompts from Caylee and Lauren, you’ll learn how to make your art journal a place to play, experiment, and be yourself – every single day.
Learn how to make a meditative art journal that serves as a container for your hopes, fears, frustrations and more with the founders of Get Messy. You’ll learn how to free write to get what’s in your head onto the page, obliterate it with paint and meditative marks, use watercolor to channel your mood, then add quotes and lettering to complete your page. This small handbound book provides the perfect place to journal and explore your feelings through words and art.
In Latin, Silva Rerum means “a forest of things.” Using this idea as a starting point, we’ll create a commonplace or everyday book to collect thoughts, ideas, and ephemera from your day-to-day life. Get Messy founder Caylee will show you how to transform a vintage book into your own art journal full of papers you love. Learn Caylee’s favorite methods of layering in vintage and found items while recording your daily life.
Travel journals are one of my favorite ways to create, but there’s no need to wait for a Parisian or Thai overseas escapade. You can have a small adventure in the now—like, tomorrow-kind-of *now*. All you need are a few of your favorite supplies (that—guess what—you already have), and a willingness. I believe in living life deliberately, and part of that is creating everyday adventures. One of the ways I do that is through the artist date. The artist date is a concept by the great Julia Cameron. For me, it’s a way to romance my artist self. Artist dates always lead to a filling of my creative well and an outpouring of art. In this workshop, I’ll take you along on a planned artist date with me, and show you how to incorporate these into your own life.
