7 Dots Studio Art Journal Page with Process Video




Hello today I'm here with you to share a process video on an art journal page I have made for 7 Dots Studio.



I made a double page spread with a hessian inclusion. This is one of my new journals and I'm just loving the varied papers and textures in it.



I attached some tags from the 12x12 sheet to the hessian inclusion piece using a stapler and then they became a part of the design and almost another whole page of its own.


I added some abstract style painting over the whole page including on the inclusion. I love being random when I paint.



I created some little feature pieces using both the element stickers and the die cut elements. These are great little embellishments for your projects.



Sit back and enjoy the process video. You will be able to watch the layer upon layer process that I took to create this fun piece of art. I'll see you all again very soon xx

She Just Appeared

Hello I'm here with you today to share an art journal page I have created using one of the latest release's of stamp plates designed by our champion designer DeeDee Catron (love your work babe)


I really had no idea where this one was going when I started it. I know I wanted to  use the Turquoise and that was about it. So that is where I started.


Then I collaged on some run off paper I had used in a previous print making project that involved the fabulous stamps from plate 1495


Because the colours in this were yellow and red, that's where the page started to go. I love it when my art is influenced by something out of my control.


And then ...... this face appeared. I just love the way it surprised me. That's the best kind of art .... the ones you don't expect.

My latest Post For Donna Downey's Artist Gang







Hello peeps. My turn over on the Artist Gang Blog with a quick little art journal spread.




I have created with some of the Holbein Artists heavy Body Acrylics today. I am in love with them to say the least!!!



I choose a cool colour combination for my background with the blues and greens and then topped it off with a brilliant neon colour for the stencil. I mixed the neon with some Titanium White paint so that it could be a little more opaque.


Here is a link to the video so you can watch the whole process unfold.

NEW Acrylic Paint from 13@rts

Hello my dears! Today I'm here to share with you an art journal page I have created using the NEW 13@rts Acrylic paints designed by Olga Heldwein.

 "Life is Tough My Darling, But So Are You"


There is nothing better than jast slapping paint onto a page and seeing what comes of it!


 This page was exactly that. It actually covers up an older page I had created a few years ago. I find that I'm not fond of these "older" pages and so my technique is to cover them up with something I do like.


Currently, I like paint .... lots of it and lots of colour! So that is what I did. Topped off with some of my favourite marks.

A Little Handmade Book

Hello my lovely peeps. I'm here with you today to share a little art journal that I made incorporating my "Strength in Numbers" collection. I am really enjoying my book making at the moment. I'm not sure what I'll put in this little one yet but it was so much fun to make.



I used an old book cover as the cover of the journal.



Then I sewed three signatures into the spine.



Each signature is made up of different pages, sizes and embellishments.


I also sewed on some extra tabs to help turn the pages with.


The process is very easy once you get every thing lined up. As long as you have a sewing machine and some patterned paper along with an old book you can make one.


I'm still not sure what I'll put into my book. i have a heap of photos from my trip to Paris where I met Olga, Tehri and Marta. maybe i can use this little book to create a memorable album of my trip.


I just love the way the papers sit against each other in each signature.


It's almost a shame to cover them with photos.

Strength in Numbers Art Journal Page

Hello I'm here with you today to share a little art journal page I have created incorporating my "Strength in Numbers" collection. from 13arts.


I have had so much fun exploring the different ways I can utilize this collection. I designed it to be versatile so it could be used for scrapbooking, art journalling or any other mixed media and paper craft your heart desires.


For this art journal page I have incorporated one of the images from the 12x12 paper "Synthesis". I enhanced it by adding some colour to the already coloured sections. 


I used some of the Shiny powders to make it shimmer. It's a bit hard to capture it in the camera.

And I added a title using the chipboard pieces. The background is coloured with some Ayeeda Acrylic paint over tissue paper to give it some texture.

A Mini Album for 7 Dots Studio


Hello! I'm here with you today to share a really fun and cute little mini book I have created for 7 Dots Studio to share some super silly photos I took in a photo booth with some friends at a retreat last year.



I just love going on retreats with my girls. We always get up to so much mischief. I'm not sure very much scrapping happens but we have plenty of laughs.




I used the gorgeous "Dreamscapes" collection designed by DeeDee Catron for this little mini book. I loved how the pinks and yellows in the collection tied in perfectly with the photo booth photos.



I also used some ephemera pieces to collage onto the background and added some coordinating colors for some interest.



I added some Die Cut Elements and some Sticker Elements to finish it all off. Then for the cover I added a tag from the 12x12 tag set and some cute little UM WOW Studio chipboard.


I just love this little treasure. It is so full of wonderful memories.




A tutorial for VLVS!

Hello today I'm here to show you how I created some collage paper by stamping directly onto the gel surface with the amazing VLVS! stamps.

I then used the collage sheets to make a little mini album.


I embellished the cover with some more stamping.

 And added some little Um WOW Studio chipboard dudes on as well.



I think i might add some pages into this little one and turn it into an art journal or a little sketch journal.


Here is the video showing how I created the collage paper.
