To fly journal page

I’m showing off a recent journal page I made using some Viva Las Vegas Stamps I bought this month. I’m really trying hard to use more stamps in my journals because I have a ton which have been with me for years and years and most of them have not even been used. I had a massive craft clear out recently and whilst I did dump a pile of stuff I couldn’t bare to part with many of my stamps…. Read more »

  As part of being on the Stencilgirl Design team we get to make some cool projects for their “Throwback Thursday” project. Stencilgirl have some amazing stencils in their arsenal, seriously I could spend a fortune every time I go on their site. With such a huge inventory sometimes some of the older stencils get lost as they’re making new ones all the time. Hence throw back Thursday to highlight some of these amazing designs. The Stencils The stencils I’m… Read more »

How do I start?… Read more »

A really fun and simple Art Journal page for you today. Sometimes it’s really nice to use just paint and some markers in your journal pages and make them quick and easy. It doesn’t all need to be deep and meaningful and hour long processes.   Making it Old Skool I used some flowers that I cut out from an old piece of scrapbooking paper I’ve had forever. It’s from Basic Grey, back in the day when I collected more… Read more »

Video tutorial time again today! I have a love/hate relationship with the videos I’ve made so far. I love to make the art journal video tutorials and I really wish I had the time to make more of them. I love to teach and I love to inspire and I think this gives me a great way to do both. Sadly the time taken up by editing, captions and graphics and just uploading the thing onto the youtube site prevents me at… Read more »

  Collage is something I’ve been trying to do a lot more of recently. As well as working outside of my Art Journal. I have real soft spot for anatomical hearts. I know some people really don’t like them but I have to say I adore them and love to try and think of new ways to use them. I wanted to make a special piece for a special young lady who’s gone through some rough times medically and was… Read more »

  One thing I do not have a problem with is buying supplies. Mainly paint supplies. I’m a total addict when it comes to buying paint. I cannot go into an art store without some creeping into my basket. So for the greater good I thought it would offer up some advice about what paints I use and when I do decide to spend a few extra pennies on the more pricey ones. Here are my super cheap paints.
