I’m here with an Art Journal  project for Jessica Sporn Designs for Valentines day with all of my lovely colleagues from the Design Team. We have a great give away too so be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win! We were so lucky to receive a wonderful package to play with from Decoarts Media, they were so generous with their supplies and I had a lot of fun playing with the items. I know I’ll be… Read more »

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 »

How to start with art Wow, how to start with art huh? Gosh that’s such a big question isn’t it? Too big for me to answer so I’m going to post a cute photo of a cat and move on okay? 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. How do I start?… 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 »

  I love to art journal as you know. I’m also a member of the Get Messy Art Journal program. One of the things I love most about Get Messy is the opportunities to collaborate with other amazing members of the community. Anika is a member of the creative team with me over at Get Messy. She has a great art journal style and she loves to combine stamping and sewing which I really love. She’s put together a collaborative project… 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. These… Read more »

    Hi Everyone! I don’t know about you but whenever I make something inside my journal I love it. I show my adoring public (ok, I show my husband) and then maybe I snap a picture and post it to Instagram. Then it gets shut inside my journal and hardly ever sees the light of day again. Well no more my friends. I now solemnly swear to get my art out of my journal and onto objects that do… Read more »

OK so you may or may not know that I am now the proud owner of my own you tube channel (you can see it and subscribe here. I’ve really enjoyed making the videos and its certainly something that I really want to make more of.  Teaching has always been my jam and you tube allows me to test out different ideas and formats. Without further ado, here is my video. I’m talking in this one which was weird to… Read more »
