Procrastinating again ....

Image from an earlier journal page by me!

Today I am supposed to be packing, ready to go and teach at De Craftorij in the Netherlands woop woop!! Packing is not my favourite thing however, and I have discovered I have a rather fabulous talent for procrastinating. It's hard to pack art supplies because every time you pick something up you just have to try it and have a little play. I have made slow progress on the packing front today. I have however, made a couple more journal backgrounds in my mini moleskine and I will be able to doodle on these on route!!

The page above uses an image by me from an earlier journal page, and I made the background with a Gelli Arts plate. It is a BIG plate and this is a small journal but I managed!

Sometimes, occasionally, I make double page spreads in my journal, but I really really like the eclectic look of two different pages side-by-side:


  1. these are fabby lushy xxx so who holds the Dyan Tower when you both away?????

    1. Ben of course! He might be quiet but you don't argue with Ben haha! And he's a rugby player ....

  2. Awesome pages Kate!!! Have a great time in Holland and please say HI to all my Dutch friends who will be in your class!!!
