In recent news, I was interviewed by the ah-may-zing Caylee Grey, in which I answered all of her questions through photographs. She titled this interview A Visual Guide To Expressing Yourself With Art Journaling. Honestly, it’s such an honor to be somewhere outside of this blog, and I’m still in happy-shock that someone so talented thinks my art is good enough to feature in an interview! You’re probably wondering, “How did this even happen?” Earlier this year, Caylee asked creative readers to apply for the opportunity of guest poster, and somehow I was chosen to be featured with 8 other lovely artists on her blog this autumn. (I’m genuinely blown away by these other ladies, too!) I happily took photos of my art for Caylee’s post, including one journal spread that I specifically created for this interview, as seen below, titled How Do I Start. The photo featured on Caylee’s blog is slightly different and has more creative guidance, so don’t think I’m just giving away my secrets. (Wink, wink.)
Anyways, enough about me, go check out Caylee’s blog! Caylee offers her readers beautiful posts, which are packed with content on everything from organization to art journaling; it’s good enough to read twice! After all, this is a co-founder of the Get Messy art journaling community, co-founder of the podcast How She Creates, and an artist who offers her own online courses! (See why I feel so honored?!)
I first came across Caylee’s blog via Googling “art journal.” (I know, creative of me, right?) But it wasn’t long before I was in awe of her blog, combing the archives and lost between posts about photography, creativity, and the glimpses into her journals. While my personal aesthetic is loud and colorful, her’s seems to celebrate negative space and soft pastels. It’s dreamy, it’s clean, and it’s easy on the eyes! No, I’m not just saying this because she accepted me as an interviewee—Caylee Grey has a style I could never master! If you’re visiting me because you like art journaling, you should know that there is another side to the palette, which is just as charming, and that Caylee is an expert in it!
So, here is your homework: go see/read my interview, listen to How She Creates, try out Caylee’s free online course on Art Journaling, and, if you can, invest $10 this month in finding out if Get Messy is right for you, because that’s how I found out that it is right for me!!
