Art Girl Journals (Somerset Life)

Hello
In the Apr/May/June issue of Somerset Life, one of the articles I had  published, this bundle of journals.  I didn’t take the time to look at my photos when the journals were still in my possession, it was only when organising this blog post recently, when looking at the photos, the colours are not true and I have fiddled around but cannot capture the warmth of the kraft colour of the journals. Decided to share them anyway.
Products from two of my favourite companies, RedLead and PaperArtsy, appear.  PaperArtsy Eclectica Everything Art ( at That’s Crafty).  Red Lead collage sheets and various stamps and some from their Labels collections.

I kept a simple palette of the kraft journals, white Gesso and accent of black.

Inside the cover of each, I stencilled or stamped, art related sentiments, all available from Red Lead (if you have this copy of Somerset Life then you will see some of the inside pages they shared within the article)

Two smaller journals.

Red Lead have the most stunning collection of images to select from.

I wanted a simple packaging idea for the notebooks and it doesn’t get as simple as glassine paper and bakers twine, the journals all bundled together with

each journal also tucked inside its own glassine pocket, again simply adorned with the wonderful Red Lead Art Girl label (I so love this label).

A Hint of Vintage (Jewelry Affaire)

Hello
Earlier this year, I had this collection of ear-rings published in Jewelry Affaire, a Stampington magazine which I’d been published in once before but not an article.  It was a huge surprise to receive an article request as submitting to this magazine was really just a challenge to myself, I had not submitted anything since that first time when the pendant was published in the gallery section.
The ear-rings followed on from some play time I had with vintage doilies (the hairbands and hair clips I shared recently).  I didn’t know if it would be possible to make ear-rings from the motifs but I had nothing to lose!

As you can see, only a handful of supplies were used to make each pair.

As with the motifs for the hairbands, they were treated (instructions are in the magazine).

It was kind of them to also include the packaging which was really only intended as a means to prevent the ear-rings becoming tangled as they made their way from Scotland to the Stampington office.

Muse Journals (Greencraft)

Hello
This trio of journals were made in 2016, with one being made as a DT project for Darkroom Door.  I enjoyed making the journal so I set about making two more.
The resin paper journals article appears in the summer issue of Greencraft magazine.  Greencraft is focused on re-cycling, re-purposing, etc, a fabulous magazine from Stampington & Co.  The re-purposed elements on my journals were old book pages, transformed into resin paper and found packaging, which I stamped the Darkroom Door stamps onto.

I have to thank my lovely friend Dorthe as she gifted that lovely copper and ivory fabric to me and it has been something I have reached for time and again for projects, the colours and the textures are perfectly suited for me.

The details for the journals are all within the Greencraft article but I’m not giving anything away by saying that each journal features a Relics & Artifacts.  They seemed so suited to team up with the Darkroom Door stamps, particularly the Word Block stamp.

The found paper/card was made grungy before stamping.

I like how the hand appears to be reaching for a pencil.

This is a detail of the resin paper.  It is so addictive to make, in fact I really need to be making some more, must do so before winter sets in as I prefer as much ventilation as possible.
Thank you always for your visits. I feel distanced from on-line activity so when I do manage to up-date my blog and read your comments, it means a great deal to me.
