HO HO HO! LIVE Christmas art journaling :-)

Ho Ho Ho! Tis the season to be jolly! 

 My next LIVE CHRISTMAS class will be on Sunday 5th December at 3PM GMT and is available now *here* 

As usual, the class will be live in a private group over on Facebook and the recording will remain in the group after the event so that you can catch up later or re-visit.

Come and join in with my colourful chaos!

In Art Journaling class 12 we will continue to art journal and create, and play with layers of colour to create fun and whimsical pages with a seasonal twist.

We're going to create a 12 grid page decorated with tiny bits of collage, and stamped images of your choice. This can be the 12 DAYS of Christmas ... or the 12 THOUGHTS of Christmas ... of the 12 WISHES of Christmas ... or whatever you want it to be. We will leave space for you to add some journaling.
We will also include that naughty little Elf on the Shelf on another page. He's so mischievous! As usual there will be simple step-by-step instruction so you can draw your own elf, supported by a downloadable pdf found under 'files' in the group.
So, get yourselves a nice mulled wine, get comfy, grab your favourite art supplies and let's HO HO HO! our way to Christmas! (Silly Christmas hats are optional LOL!)

Wanderlust 2021

Well, my very last lesson as host of Wanderlust 21 is up in the classroom. What a year it has been! 

Almost as soon as we made plans for this year we had to change them due to the pandemic so it has been a very different experience to the one we had planned. Still, learning and sharing on-line has kept us all connected and inspired through difficult times so onwards and upwards! 

I am still going to be involved in the fabulous Wanderlust next year 
(although not as guest host) so see some of you there :-)

Click *here* for details of Wanderlust 2022 - you can sign up until the end of December and then it will close so don't miss out!

More Grafix fun :-)

Silly Birdie by me!

More art journal fun on Grafix Plastic. It is really fun to play with the transparency - can you see the ledger paper peeping through from underneath?

Art Journaling on Grafix :-)

OOOh I do like playing on Grafix Arts substrates. This is an art journal page on the opaque black. The fact that it is non-porous makes it super-easy to paint on 🙂 I added a Tim Holtz doll and stitched right over it! Extra pattern with Carabelle Studio stamps and stencils.

I set up a separate page on my blog for all things Grafix, including links to my instructional videos and also to suppliers and retailers. . You can check it out **here**

New Mini Class !

I have pre-recorded a mini class featuring my little collage book in a bag :-)

I originally made this as a sample to showcase my new collection for Carabelle Studio and several people asked me if I would record a class, so here it is! It is all recorded and good to go. You can find it *here* ;-)

 FYI: The class is pre-recorded and will be held on Vimeo where you can watch on-line AND?OR download to your own device.

Thanks as always for your interest and enthusiasm!
