Art Journaling - A Different Direction

Hello and welcome back to my little blog. I've been working a lot with art journaling lately. I find this is such an amazingly creative outlet. I'm writing a series of articles about this for Scrapbooking Memories magazine.

Here are some of the pages I've made for the magazine articles:

This one is made entirely with Tinby Designs Colour Crush and pen (plus some alphas). This is a great example of how you can create something when you're just playing.

This one also predominantly uses Colour Crush. I love those Colour Crush butterflies!

I know my work is usually very colour-driven but I also adore book text with black and white. I love how this turned out!

If you'd like to learn more about art journaling I hope you can pick up one of my articles in Scrapbooking Memories magazine!

Happy scrappin'!

It's all Black and White at More Than Words!

Hello and welcome to the April challenge at More Than Words! It might be April Fools Day but there's no joke about this fabulous challenge!

Firstly, here's what I made:

The ice-cream I was eating was the best one ever! It was from my favourite ice-cream shop where we go on holidays and they gave me an extra scoop this day. Check out the flavours below. Yum!

I converted my photo to black and white (cos there was a horrible bright green wall behind me!) then let the colours stay only on the ice-cream.

Hmmm, there's lots of black and white on there. Do you know what the challenge is yet?

Apart from the black and white, pink is the only other colour on the page. Have you worked the challenge out? Ok - here it is!

The challenge is to be influenced by the word 'Dream' and create in black, white and one other colour. Easy! You can find the challenge here.

I sure hope you can join us this month!

Happy scrappin'!
