Mixed Media Art Journaling – Abstract Textures & Found Poetry

Found poetry is one of the joys of serendipity – that magical result of leafing through some printed pages and just seeing what catches the eye. No planning, just following intuition to create something meaningful with words that fit together but perhaps not as they were originally intended.

Mixed Media Art Journaling – Listen to Silence

What happens when you create some space in your life?

Space to think … to dream … to create?

Why not join me this Sunday as we try to tap into that space to create an art journal page that is calm and meditative. I will share some simple techniques to get your creative juices flowing and you will learn a few creative techniques along the way to harness the power of Dylusions spray inks.

Mixed Media Art Journaling – Find Your Happy

Join me to create a wonderfully drippy, textured mixed media art journal page featuring a hand lettered quote. You are welcome to customise your page by bringing along your favourite quote to letter, or use the one supplied.

I will be sharing some tips for creating texture in your art journal using masks for beautifully touch-worthy pages. The page background is created using acrylic inks so I’ll be sure to show you my favourite techniques using these vibrant inks.

Mixed Media Art Journaling Workshop – Fun with Sheeple

I love quirky images and the Sheeple stamps from Paper Arsty caught my eye recently so I decided to create a page around these fun, dancing characters. I’ll be teaching how to create it this Sunday at Bella Paperie and I’d love you to join me.

The class will start with a few basic techniques using the Gel Press to create a subtle background and then we will add some stamped imagery to enhance the page, finishing it off with a quirky Sheeple trio.

Mixed Media Art Journaling Workshop – Fairy Whispers

I came across a quote recently, ‘raindrops are fairy whispers’ and I loved the imagery it conjured for a journal page so I changed it up a little for my upcoming class.

I’ll be teaching how to create at Bella Paperie this Friday and I’d love you to join me. We will start with a fun painty play session using our Gel Press plates and then I’ll guide you through calming the myriad of patterns into shapes, finishing with a little doodling.

I hope you will join me in this leap into pattern making without quite knowing how the end result will look – every page will be different. Come along and I’ll share my pattern taming techniques to help you create a page that you love. These techniques are ones you will return to many times.
