Art journaling ... on a mini scale ...

I truly love playing around in my mini moleskine journal. It measures just 10 x 15 cm when closed, so the pages are quick, quick, quick to do! And so much less pressure than working on a large scale.

I used my new Guardian stamp for the page above, and she is looking over a fab quote I found. Anyone else recognise this feeling?!

Smaller stamps are perfect for working in a small journal as they fill the page nicely, but hey! if your stamps don't fit, chop them in half and make them fit!

I like a good ol' grump in my journal every now and then. Ok, ok, it's probably a bit more frequent than that ;-) Daniel Torrente's stamps are perfect for when I'm in the mood for a moan ... they have such attitude!

Sometimes just something random such as a capital letter from an alphabet stamps can work ....

... I think they look pretty good side-by-side:

I'm teaching  class on mini journaling at Art from the Heart (Harrogate, UK) on 26th March - still a couple of places left if anyone fancies it. 

And why not check out the new classes schedule at Art from the Heart *here*. Classes are filling up really fast so if you fancy something you'll have to be quick!

Byee for now!
