Art Journal Play!

Do you remember this? I made a little concertina journal a while ago, and I happen to love it! I leave it open on my desk and when I have a bit of spare paint left over, I just slap it on in a carefree fashion! It really is a very liberating way of art journaling.

So recently I added a couple more pages ... with a bit of paint, bit of washi tape, bit of doodling, bit of collage, bit of whatever ya fancy!

Happy days!

New on-line class coming soon!

Well, I've been making these miniature matchboxes complete with teeny tiny journals and mini prompt cards for a while and I've had quite a few requests for an on-line class. It has taken me a little while to get my act together (LOL!) but it's coming soon! Next week! It's all done, I've just got to check for any bloopers before I go public haha!

It's going to be a mini class (1 hour 10 mins of video), about mini things, for a mini price!

It includes ...preparing the matchboxes ...

Making the backgrounds using paints and inks. These backgrounds will also come as a download as part of the class for those of you who still want to make matchboxes but don't want to get inky ;-)

 Making journals on a mini scale:

Decorating the boxes with stamped images, or digi downloads. I'll be giving away my collaged houses download as part of the class.

Making a mini concertina journal:

And some journal prompt cards:

I just LOVE making these marvellous miniatures, and I have loved making this class too!

The class will include 1 hour 10 mins of step-by-step videos hosted in a private group on Vimeo, 3 x background downloads, 1 x collaged houses download.
It will be available in my Etsy shop next week! (Oh, and these matchboxes that I made as part of the class are available in my Etsy too!)

Byeeeee have a wonderful weekend!
