New Releases at ArtStacks!

I'm so thrilled to be sharing my new project made with ArtStacks' two new-release packs, All Dressed Up and Wings & Things. I love how these packs work together so well!

To make this I took a geli-print background, punched one edge and added ric-rac. I took one of the windows from the Doors & Windows CardStack. This page is printed on watercolour paper so you can colour it to suit your page but I chose to leave it white, in keeping with the pink and white colours on the page. I did colour the flower box from the same page though.

I added the little girl, the crown, the book and the title, all from the new All Dressed Up pack, and added the striking pink wings from the Wings & Things pack. The little girl looks so delighted with her new outfit!

I absolutely adore these new packs.

Head to to see the new releases in detail.

Happy arting!

Every Day is a Journey

Hello! The new Mini Challenge at More Than Words is to use the word Journey on your mini project. I made a tag.

I used part of a page from ArtStacks' Doors & Windows pack, backed it onto black cardstock, added and title and fibres and that's it!

Will you join the Journey challenge? You can find the details here.

Happy Journeying!

Choose Your Own Adventure at MTW

The new challenge at More Than Words is to be inspired by the word "Adventure' and to use a map on your art journal page.

I layered a torn map onto kraft cardstock then used one of the awesome sketchbook images by Deb Weiers at ArtStacks to make the point that we all need to choose our own adventure. We're all unique and we shouldn't think that we have to tread the same path as others.

Will you join us this month? You can find the challenge here.

Happy adventuring!

We're All In This Together

Hello again! The new challenge at Kraft + is to use handwriting on your project - and kraft of course.

I had fun with this one. I made an art journal page using scraps off my desk. I love the random, messy effect that scraps give to my pages.

I tore the book page then wrote my journaling on the kraft background between the torn sections. I used one of Deb Weiers' gorgeous little pieces of two people from ArtStacks and wrote "We're all in this together" repeatedly on the kraft background between the torn sections. This is a statement about world events, mainly the war in Ukraine and covid. 

The book paper already had leaves and circles punched out of it so I utilised those in my page.

I hope you'll play along this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy krafting!
