Micro Journaling

Trying some micro journaling for the first time. Have some new stamps designed by Vera Lane Studio for ALL and Create stamps to play with. In the end decided to limit my colour palette for this journal. Here are my first three double pages.

Journal Cover



Paced myself making just one patch each month throughout the year for this journal cover. Used lots of paint and stamping on the fabric along with some stitching, beads, etc. Found time this week to make a journal to go inside and going put it away ready to start a fresh journal in 2020.

Being Normal...

Loved how this journal page turned out and inked up two new stamps as well! Didn’t have any coordinating papers for her dress so in the end found some fabric so added some nice texture too.

I worked in a Moleskine watercolour journal and used Neocolor crayons.

International Women’s Day

Proud to have one of my girls being exhibited as part of International Women’s Day at The Makers Mezzanine in Whitney on Wye. 
All the works of art are postcard size and I decided to work on a wood block using acrylics, watercolour and of course some washie tape. 
I added an inspirational quote which I felt reflected the theme #balanceforbetter.
All the works of art are for sale and a percentage of the profits will go to local women’s services in Herefordshire and Powys.

Happiness is...

Started with a Gelli print background in my paperbag journal. Added some stamping, foiling and frantage to the page. The image (Danielle Donaldson designs for Stamping Bella) is coloured using Copics/Promarkers and a touch of coloured pencil.

A bit of a puzzle!

I decided it was time to dust of some of my PaperArtsy girls for these altered jigsaw puzzles pieces. Drippage using acrylic ink, stencilling using both neon ink and acrylic paints. Of course plenty of stamping and I coloured my girls in with Promarkers/Copics.

More Focus

Upcycled a little metal tin for this cute little door hanger. Painted using Fresco paints and glittered the inside. The background is a Gelli print using Distress Oxide inks and the girlie stamps are from Stamping Bella. I chose the quote as it included my word for 2019 ‘focus’.

Be Bold!

Sharing my first art journal page for 2019 today.
Made myself a little paper bag journal.
 First I Gelli printed onto each side of the bag and then stitched the pages onto the cover. It’s only small but perfect for some quick art journaling work.
