12 Journals of 2016 Complete!

Hi everyone

Apologies this video is a little late due to technical difficulties!  My Computer has been in the menders not once but TWICE and I am just getting over the withdrawal!  It is amazing how much I missed having access to my YouTube account!  I have managed to keep filming though so all I need to do now is get editing!

So first things first.  Time to finish off my 2016 Art Journal  (not 2017 check out the tutorial to find out what I did!!).  In this tutorial I will show you how I made covers for my pages and now I have two lovely volumes documenting some of my art adventures and memories from 2016 in my favourite colour too!

As you will know all my pages were inspired by Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 series this year and I am going to miss playing along with him as he has decided after many years of creating tags full of technique and inspiration he is going to concentrate on other things.  But every cloud has a silver lining and mine is that I am going to go it alone and bring the inspiration myself this year as I have had such fun with my 2016 Journal I want to share!

I am changing the format of the pages slightly but there will be an element of scrapbooking combined with a ton of mixed media art journal inspiration.

I am really looking forward to telling you more but first there is this tutorial to show you an idea for covering all your lovely art journal pages or perhaps an idea for creating a mini album which would work too.

Next up from me will be a short final journal run through video and then it is on to my Journal 2017 Series.  I do have a little catch up to do so there will be two pages in quick succession but then it is my intention to journal a month in arrears around the third week of the month so this series will be finished and bound in January 2018.

I really hope you will play along with me so don't forget to subscribe here and on my You Tube Channel for more details coming soon.

Thank you for popping by X

    Loving your journals , when you down this way again? Xx

  3. I don't seem to have visited you for simply ages, Helen, and what a treat when I eventually did! These two journals are nothing short of stunning. A really beautiful piece of work, and also very well explained on the video. I am getting into making books these days and really enjoy it - books make a lovely tactile way of storing one's art work and far better than hanging on the wall in my opinion!

    Hope you are well.
