SPA Children

Hi there! 
A long over due post, finally, I sometimes even forget I have a blog still... 

Anyway, I thought why not start to play along with the SPA challenges again, used to love those and yes, I still do!

This weeks prompt was chosen by Amy and it's Children, so I grabbed my stash of Tim Holtz paper dolls and found one as you can see. 
The background is made out of gelli prints, I stamped a bit here and there and also got my sewing machine out, trick I learned from Kate Crane

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate comments!

Journal Soup 2

After doing Journal Soup 1, it was time for #2 so.... here we go, I had tons of fun with this class, learned a lot more techniques and even how to draw... a bit 😉

This one with the owl is one of my favorites! Loved it so much that I made 2 canvasses for my bathroom and it looks awesome!

I mean... how adorable is this cutie???

If you like this and would love to do it yourself, go here and you can purchase the classes!!

Journal Soup 1

Sometimes, I'm so very late to the party ;) so, when I started picking up art journaling again, I decided it was time to start following the Journal Soup classes by Kate Crane! 
And I'm so glad I did this cause I have learned so much and have had tons of fun working on these pages! 
If you're interested in these classes, you can find them on Etsy, click here to go directly to Kate's store!!

These are the 6 pages I did for the first Journal Soup!

I also wanted a "cover page" for my box, so I made this page!

Fun with paint and stamps! 

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment!!

Junk journal pages

Slowly some orders are coming in from Simon Says Stamp, so happy I found the Skittles and Kooky Cats and more designed by Kate Crane in their store!! 

Perfect for making some pages in my Junk Journal, and I finally found a great way to color them, using my watercolor pencils and a water brush! Yay!

Skittels! Love this one with the crown!! 

And how cute is this Kooky Cat?? I know right? Awesome! Love the non matching colors in this one, for some reason it works great together.... 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Junk Journal in the making!

Well, it has been a long, very long time since I posted here!! So, let's start again today! 
Lately I've been doing a lot of art journaling again, and yesterday I started to make my first ever Junk Journal after watching an online class by Kate Crane! I honestly never thought I would like this, but geez, this sure is fun to do! 
So far I've got 2 signatures in my cover and am making more so I can start filling it up! 
Here are some pictures!

I will be back with more pictures once I've filled it up with some colourful images/stamps or "junk"!

Lifting a page of myself!

There are days, that I want to be creative, but am totally stuck what to do...... So, when that happened the other day, I decided to lift a page of myself, because I loved the layout of it!

The first time I did this page is was in my regular size journal, this is my large one 8.5 x 11 inches and it's difficult at first, to fill up all that space but once you get started it goes easier!
The quote used was on my calender for this month and I really liked it, and the images except for the butterfly are by Tumble Fish Studio.

Thanks for stopping by again!

Mixed Media Challenge #1

It has been a very long time that I've posted here for the last time........ shame on me...... I guess it's because I'm more on Facebook and showing my work there, and totally forget I've got a blog too!

So, now that I've found a nice challenge blog about Mixed Media, I thought I'd post my page here and try to keep my blog up-to-date again!

Spray inks and mists, that's the first topic, well, those happen to be one of my favorite things to use in my journals, so here we go!

A page in my large art journal, made a while a go, but perfectly suitable for this challenge!
