12 Journals of 2016 - June

Hi Everyone

Here is June's Journal page inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 and his June Tag in which he combines two techniques from previous tags for a completely new look.  This really is a fun challenge to play along with.  New things to try or old techniques to rediscover and tons of inspiration so click on this link if you want to play along too.

As you may know I have been playing along with this challenge for some years now and I have decided to make journal pages rather than tags this year.

Each page also comes with a matching tag as you can see here.  I haven't decided what to journal about yet and as I am having printer troubles I will share the finished tag with you later.

In the video you will see how I used the two techniques Tim used on his tag as the inspiration for my journal page.  Hope you find something to inspire you to get creative.

If you are new to my blog…….Welcome……….There is a ton of creativity in my archives so please feel free to explore and of course if you like what you see then please subscribe and be sure that you get to hear next time I post.

See you soon with some more creativity.  Thank you for popping by X

12 Journals of 2016 - May

Hi Everyone

I am catching up with my 12 Journals of 2016 this month and probably next!  I am a bit behind again - I don't know where my time disappears to sometimes.  Keeping this post short as I am off to edit June's Page which is all filmed!

I am playing along with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 only I am making journal pages instead.  The principal is the same I will take his inspiration and give it my own interpretation and will film the journey for you.

I love how this one turned out… the end!  This was one of those pages that took a while to find its direction as you will see in the video.  But when it got there I liked the story it told and I know fellow Art Journalers will appreciate the use of Gesso and a black pen which so often come to my rescue!!!!

As usual I am creating a tag for each month but I am out of ink at the moment so I haven't been able to add my journalling and photo just yet - I will bring that to you in another video once my printer is up and running again!

If you are wondering about those gorgeous stamped images I have use Antique Botanicals by Rubber Dance.  I particularly love this flower and have used it over and over.  Click on the link if you want to see more of this lovely collection of stamps.

Without further ado here is the tutorial which takes you from Tim's inspiration to my interpretation.

Another Archived Tutorial!

Good Morning!

Well it is a bit grey and damp here at the moment so I hope it is sunnier where you are today.  Just a quick post with another little tutorial.  Sorry about the photos but as I said this was footage from a few years ago!

I used similar papers for both of my designs but even so I think because I used two different sets of flower stamps the photo above has an oriental feel whilst the one below is a little more modern looking.

This is a really easy card idea to replicate and I know you can come up with all sorts of paper combinations using your own flower stamp stash…..!!!!

Hope you have fun with this tutorial.  Thank you for popping by X
