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 »

Oh sorry, you actually want me to try and answer this do you? Haha just kidding, I’m totally going to (attempt) to answer this question because it’s one I hear a lot from people all.the.time.

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 »

I wanted to tell you all the story of how I managed to find myself on the creative team for Stencilgirl. Not only did I get on the team, they ASKED me to be on the team. For realz. I nearly fell off my chair I was so excited. But I’m getting ahead of myself so I’ll start from the beginning. Life book So this all began when I was taking the life book lesson from MaryBeth Shaw. MaryBeth is… 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 »
