Finishing Journal Pages

I haven't completed a journal page for ages, I've been making lots of backgrounds but not finishing the actual page so I decided to be brave and use up one of my backgrounds. Here is a page I've had in my head for a while now, probably from the first time I saw this stamp! The stamp is Suzi Blu Love Yourself and is available from Make The…


My Creative Block

It's journal page Monday and I have a page I made a few weeks ago when I was going through a bit of a creative block. I think I might have said at the time that I was finding it hard to design and my blog was a little sparse as a consequence! I'm now on the other side of that creative block and planning…

More Painting Experiments

Well we needed to…


Playing With Paint And Glue

I've been dropping subtle hints here on my blog over the last week or so that I might subject you all to my playing with paint and art journal pages.
