As Featured On The Blitsy Blog – How To Make A Bold Chalk Paint Journal Page

Time for my Blitsy blog tutorial and this week I'm sharing how to make a layered DecoArt Chalk Finish paint Art journal page. [I do use affiliate links and there are some in this blog post.] That stuff is not just for your furniture revamps, it looks great on paper too! I do love blues and reds together don't you?

It is still in the same form that I left it last week. Ho Hum! It is still a mess in search of a theme, I've just not had a chance to continue on it as I'm working to deadlines for a few articles at the moment. Of course I can't wait…

Mixed Media Greeting Card – Something Old Turned New

I think I might have a problem! I can not throw anything away. Ok so we haven't quite made any of the Hoarders Are Us programs on the telly yet but sometimes I think it might be close. I reckon you can empathise with me can't you? I mean it is a bit of a crafters' disease isn't it?

Work In Progress – Art In Search Of A Theme Week 2

Last Wednesday I started a new project working in a series and shared my first step here on my blog. So I am back this week to share how it is going and show the next steps in the process. When I finished up the blog post last week I was trying to settle on a theme but a week later and I still could not focus my ideas and options. Does that happen to you too? There are just too many options and nothing was really speaking to…
