Light in Your Heart


I'm back today with an art journal page made using Tamara Laporte's new images over at ArtStacks. Tam, known as 'willowing' on Instagram, has released two packs. The owl and leaves are from her Artsy Animals pack and the quote is from her Fabulous Faces pack.

Pop over to the ArtStacks shop here to see what else is in her amazing packs!

Happy creatin'!

Don't Blame Me!

Hello again! There's an interesting challenge at More Than Words this month. Earth Day is on April 22nd so you have to be inspired by "Being Green". Now this one got me thinking - which is what a good challenge should do. 

I was really drawn to this image of a cow by the amazing Tamara Laporte (#willowing) in her Artsy Animals pack over at ArtStacks and I got thinking about how easy it is to blame cows and livestock for our greenhouse gas emission problems but we really need to look at ourselves. So many things can be improved by changing our habits.

I think the cow agrees - she's got that look in her eyes!

The hearts in the cluster in the corner are all from Lisa Oxley's Bright & Bold pack at ArtStacks too.

You can check out the challenge details here.

Happy art journaling!

Inspired by Lisa Oxley!

I was so excited when I saw this month's challenge over at Kraft Plus. The challenge is to be inspired by the amazing Lisa Oxley! Not only is Lisa Oxley an incredible artist who I really admire but I'm in the enviable position of publishing her papers over at ArtStacks!

I made this:

Lisa has so many gorgeous images to choose from in her ArtStacks packs. I really love this stunning pink floral background that's printed on canvas paper. I added Lisa's tissue leaves and other papers. In fact all the papers on this page, except for the kraft background, are Lisa's.

And one last surprise - if you look closely at the pictures you'll see I'm wearing one of Lisa's t-shirts! Can you tell I'm a big fan? Haha!

Will you join in this colourful challenge? Don't forget the kraft! You can find the details here.

Happy krafting!
