'Hidden' - Journal Board


New challenge of at Mixed Media World, as usual we have a break in January but we are back, complete with new teams too. Please pop on over to say hi if you get the chance :) 

For the anything goes challenge, I decided to do an art journal page on canvas board. I chose to go for a more intuitive style than anything with purpose and structure. It is actually quite freeing and seriouslyrecommend it, especially if you have never tried it before. It really is like letting your emotions out in paint!!

I used lots of Finnabar's Art Alchemy Paints and Gesso, also, of course, one of her beautiful Vintage Mechanical Hearts! 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

'Believe' Layout + Video


My turn over at 49 and Market today :)

And here is the layout I have to share with you:

Completely inspired by two gorgeous brands that go together like ice cream and cookie dough. I looked to the challenges this month from Lindy's (for the colour scheme) and Dusty Attic (for the layout). I chose Vintage Artistry - The Report background paper.

Gorgeous flowers (Roses White) from 49, allowing great absorption of colour whilst still holding it's structural integrity. I tried as best as I could to capture the shimmer of those sprays on the flowers here - hope you can see it :)

Showing a close up of the stencil (LOVE this design) pattern using Light Paste with Magicals and glitter glass.

Some lovely chippies - each embossed with a different powder from Lindy's and the flower sprayed with two of their colours.

Finally getting a chance to use my own stamp design (With All Your Heart) in a layout :) eek - exciting! Love how it looks peek through from behind the stencil and title.

For this layout I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and as a little extra I have a video to share of my creative process... hope you like!

'Fly Through Time' - Journal


 'volant per tempus'

Well I figured it was about time I make another hand bound journal to add to the collection. Each time I learn something new in this remarkable adventure. Something extra to add, or adapt to the next. Using some amazing products from Mixed Media Place, mediums, metal embellishments and even rust paste.

I'm not going to go in to too much detail here, but there is more over at Mixed Media Place blog. For now, here are some pics:

Thank you for stopping by and as always it means so much to me seeing you here. 

Wishing you the best year possible with lots of creative mojo!
