Woohoo! My new DVDs are out!


Woohoo! I'm so excited, my *new* art journaling DVDs (Craft Stamper / Traplet publications) are out and available now :-))) I was so pleased when I was asked to make some more instructional DVDs, but also completely terrified! OOh and it wasn't any easier second time round.....!

(You will, however, be pleased to know that the lovely and very patient producer told me that he has edited some of my more robust language hahaha!!!!)





The DVDs work in the same way as last time, in that backgrounds are prepared in DVD 3:


In Art Journaling 3 - Bold Backgrounds, Kate creates seven stunning backgrounds using her trademark bright and vibrant colours. Shown step-by-step in real time, with details of the equipment and materials used, you can easily follow along. Kate explains her thought process as she uses acrylic paints, ink sprays, stencils, rubber stamps, gesso and pastels to create balanced, cohesive, yet uncluttered backgrounds. Simple, but effective, mixed-media techniques include blending, sponging, spraying, stencilling, spritzing and scraping and rubber stamping. By the end of this DVD Kate finishes the backgrounds she needs for Art Journaling 4 - Personalised Pages, where she then adds the layers, details, images and journaling to make each page a deeply personal piece of art.


And then completed in DVD 4:


In Art Journaling 4 - Personalised Pages, Kate continues the pages from Art Journaling 3 - Bold Backgrounds and explores ways to add finishing touches, adding more colour, doodling, rubber stamping, digital collage images and even some hand-drawn elements, maintaining unity and cohesion on the page. Perhaps the most interesting, yet most challenging feature of any page is the journaling itself. Kate shows how to add prompts to encourage even the most reluctant journaler, such as making a monthly art calendar page to get you journaling on a daily basis. Browse through Kate’s gallery to see how the variety and beauty of her page designs merges with personal, heartfelt journaling. Together, let’s make something very, very special!


Or you can buy both together as a box set which works out a bit cheaper, and for an extra fiver you can even get me in blu-ray! And I think you will be pleased to know that this time there isn't any background music ;-)

The DVDs demonstrate different techniques and layouts to my previous DVDs, and use a combination of ink sprays, paints, rubber stamps, digi images and so on .... there's even a bit of hand-drawing.

Here's a few sneak peeks:

  27. Oh I am doing the happy dance here. Now all I have to do is wait for them to arrive in Australia, was just told by Traplet Aus I will have to wait at least another few weeks.... :( Ah well good things come to those who wait...so they say.

    I like the idea of online classes....for all of us who don't live in the UK .......fingers crossed.
