I forgot to blog about this tutorial. Here you find me adding a simple flap to my journal page. Easy-peasy but so interesting!

Today's video features the monthly box from The Artful Life.  

The beautifully decorated box comes complete with some lovely art products and samples for you to try.

 

I'm also trying out Golden's Absorbent Ground which makes your substrate act like watercolour paper. It was very relaxing to let the watercolours mix and spread across the paper.

 

 The subject of my spread, "Friends" was inspired by th...

At the end of the video, I show you a technique to take one of my prints a step further.

 

These Gelli prints are great for collage, book covers, ATC's, background papers...all sorts of things. Just to show you how you can use the...

I wanted to redraw some of my recent portraits, just to see if I could reproduce their likenesses, but in a different pose.

Its a fun exercise and really stretches you to refine your previous work. I have noticed though, that some of my girls have aged in their new portraits....well...maybe time moves differently in faery land! lol

I thought I'd start to share some art journal pages on a regular basis, by way of video tutorials

Today's is about adding a flap onto the page. I've chosen my handbag as the image for the flap, I've also drawn the contents of my bag underneath the flap, so some time in the future, I'll be able to look back and get a glimpse of my 'past'.

Painted rocks can look amazing. 

 They are quick, easy and fun to make. 

 You can group them together for a pretty display or you can scatter them around your home, tucked onto shelves, tables or any little space available.

 Decorate them with patterns, words, snowflakes, simple pictures or whatever takes your fancy. These little works of art are precious little gifts that you can give by custom...
