Ooooooh I LOVE how today’s art journal turned out! I used a purple ink pen to outline the hand drawn part of the flowers then soon after I applied water colour paint. It blurred it in a way I haven’t experienced before. I need to think of something beautiful to make with all these art journal pages… at the moment they are floating around my desk! Have you got any ideas?xobec

I have had this little monarch butterfly wing sitting on my desk since I found it a few months ago. I couldn’t bare throwing it out so it has been sitting here waiting to be used on something creative. Art journal- you are the perfect way for me to showcase this precious little wing. What do you think?xobec



DIY: Valentines Day Jewellery Box

Jewellery Box DIY 1

Today I’m sharing a simple idea for Valentines Day. If you’re giving someone something small like jewellery this would be perfect! Supplies needed: patterned paper, scissors, a small box and modpodge.

Using some patterned paper I cut out small and large hearts then used modpodge to stick them randomly over the box. Leave to dry before finishing with some pretty bakers twine!
