April’s Art Journal Pocket


This month’s mixed media journal pocket was created using paints, stencils, ink, lots of stamping, washi tape and alcohol markers

Tucked inside my pocket are some little tickets, journaling page and an altered artist trading coin paperclip.
The stamps I used were designed by Danielle Donaldson for Stamping Bella.

Hoppy Easter

 Inked up another new image from a stamp set by Reverse Confetti.

I created the Easter egg card shape by die cutting using my Scan n Cut.

The background of the cards were layered up papers which I stitched using my sewing machine.

The images were coloured using Promarkers.

Christmas in March

 Keeping up with my Christmas card monthly make.

This month I inked up a new stamp by Purple Onion.

The background to my card was created using inks, stencils and stamps.

Went for a bold sentiment using glitter foam alphabet stickers.

Spring Sunshine

 Not getting much of that in the UK. 

But at least working with the lovely sunshine yellow cheered me up at bit! 

Here is my journal pocket for March. 

Mixed media background cardstock using paints and inks.

Inside my pocket I made a button card (shrink plastic buttons) ATC, Mini Moo, tag and altered paperclip.

All the stamped images were by Janet Klein for Aall and Create.

Christmas Cookies

Started with a card and then inspiration struck to make a little Christmas pocket using the same stamp set by Janet Klein for AAll and Create.

Created my own inky background using gingerbread man stencil die cut from Scan n Cut. Lots of inky elements added. All the images were coloured using Promarkers.

Heart Pocket

 Made my February journal pocket using mixed media backgrounds, which I machine stitched together.

Tucked inside the pocket are two quirky Stampotique images and also a heart die cut which I turned into  altered paperclip.

All these images and embellishments were all coloured using Promarkers.

 Going to try and continue making a Christmas card or two on or around Rudolph Day each month!

Starting with some Christmas snowman, a very old stamp but always a favourite!

Added some wintry blue glitter card and of course a sparkle of glitter/gems too. Images coloured using Promarkers.

I decided to go with a scrapling style card this month but fits into a C6 envelope.

Coffee Break

 I made this little card using a brand new AAll and Create stamp gifted to me at Christmas by a very kind friend. The image was coloured with Promarkers and I used some scrap mixed media background I had leftover. Finished off with a bit of stitching and some gems.

Pugs in a pocket


This year I have decided rather than to do a journal page each month I am going to make a journal pocket instead. I made my own mixed media background using paint, ink through stencils on A4 card and then turned it into a pocket.

The stamped images are by Funky Fossil…loving the Pugs! They were coloured using Promarkers pens. I even stamped one onto shrink plastic and used it on a mini moo to go inside my pocket. There is an altered paperclip and a tag as well.
