More journaling, classes, and paper punches!

Well, as you can see, I'm still playing with paper punches. These are leftover from my card making days ... but these days I use them in quite a different way. I especially like the negative shape which is left behind when you punch a shape so I made it the focus of my page here.

Here are a few progress pics and close ups.

Before I added the journaling:

And this is how it looks just as the background:

I am IN LOVE with my new texture cube for Stampotique Originals. I know I designed it and I should be a bit more modest, but hey, it's fabulous! haha!

Got to love a bit of washi tape:

Ooh, lovely metallics!

And a random bit of stitching, complete with dangling threads completes the page:

I included this page as part of my regular art journaling class at Art from the Heart yesterday, and what a very lovely day it was. Lots of messy, painty creativity, chat, laughs, mess, and biscuits. LOVE this group :-)

And they all produce beautiful art journal pages, using mine as a springboard but then giving it their own twist.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got a new toy to play with - a large hexagon punch to go along with my small hexagon punch. A few of these and my sticker machine makes me very happy :-))) Byeeeeeeee


  1. Love the idea of creating your own stickers. I really like using the negative space bits and pieces. Great ideas Kate.

  2. Such a beautiful journal page - I love all the pretty colors you use. It looks like everyone was having fun at the class!
