Bits and Bobs...


Craft Stamper magazine (UK) is out in the shops today, and inside you will find an article by me! This month it's all about how to build up layers on your art journal pages. Here are a few sneak peeks.....




Have you seen?? There are new colours of ink sprays at AFTH in gorgeous gorgeous colours! OMG, you can't have enough of these :-)   Have a lookie here for the details.


Thanks to everyone who has added a link to their calendar pages so far. What a fantastic response to the challenge this year :-)  If you haven't been round to visit the other challengers' blogs so far, make sure you do as there is some wonderful inspirational work going on out there! You have until 28th Feb to add a link to your blog / flickr with your feb pages on and you will find the link here.

Right I'm off. This morning I was painting and making Chinese lanterns with eighteen 4 year olds to celebrate Chinese New Year .... I need a lie down ......!

  6. Well done Kate - as soon as I get CS the first article I turn to is yours - it always is. Another stunning article from you.
    I wish Dyan would wholesale her Dylusion sprays - I would certainly stock them as they are such yummy colours.
    Will try to remember to photograph the January pages and post them tomorrow -Feb is already started.

  22. I'm sure you're doing wonders for the sales of Craft Stamper - when you mentioned that you were in it this month I had to go to WHSmith on my way home from work to buy it! Love the article and it really reinforced what I'd learned last Saturday (is it really only a week ago!). See you next month :-)

  27. Just discovered And your blog through dyan reveally blog page. I love your work. I am a teacher too and should be marking but I am going back through your blogposts instead. I get the craft stamper and was delighted when I came across the entry I must have glossed over the article at the time but I can't wait to give it a go on the weekend. You are an inspiration and I love your style.
