Been playing in my art journal ...

Yep, I've actually found some me time & have been playing, these pages were totally inspired by Christy Tomlinson's blog Here, the post is about 1/2 way down, but it's a beautiful blog well worth a look, so go enjoy !
I couldn't resist having a go, then Saskia my daughter came up into the studio & has started a canvas so that she too can have a go with this very effective technique.
Here's the pictures, no journaling has yet touched the page, but I'm not sure that it will either. The Live life was done using Rangers Adirondack dimensional pearls, it wrote really well, can see me using this again too ! You can get these from
Artist Trading Post
anyways.. enough talk, here's the pictures :


thanks for stopping by :o) x

New workshops up online now ...

So after a busy couple of weeks of school productions, scenery painting & stage building, Workshop preparation and workshop and sample making I've found 5 minutes to get a card made for my younger brother Kris & his girlfriend Becky who are moving house today (that's something else I shall be doing in 1/2 an hour, off to help them move) Kris & Becky are the brains behind :LittleBigTree
& this is the quick card I made them ...
& here is a picture of the lovely girls all ready to start the ABC book of me workshop last Thursday ... there was some fabulous work produced there !!

And then as it said at the beginning of the post there are new workshops up online at : Creative Journey Workshops
Here are a few sneak peeks at what's coming up ....
