Get Messy – Taking the Heart Journal Class

This past week Get Messy launched a new online course – Heart Journal

The course was created by my friend Essie, who has such a whimsical and magical collage style and I was excited to learn she was teaching a class. The Heart Journal course is designed to help you work more emotions into your art journal, rather than just make pretty pages. Although pretty pages are always good too, yeah?


As a part of the Get Messy Creative Team, I got early access to this class, so I’ve been experimenting on a few art journal pages!


A Happiness page with a Matisse inspired collage on the left. I’m really in love with that technique.



The Heart Journal class has 6 different lessons, and Essie breaks them up into different emotions, such as Joy, Sadness, Peace, etc.


My Peace page. I’m most at peace whenever I’m out in nature, so that’s definitely what inspired the butterfly, maps, and tree.
