back to work

 It's time to spend some time in my studio after an amazing trip to Ireland with some scary moments. A lot to tell but maybe another time. Thank you girls for an amazing time!!! 

I have made two pages for todays DT posts. 
Here is the page for Stampotique Originals challenge - Black&Pink&Purple.  I used my Romek and Circles Cube from a new release. I also stamped my Raindrops. Check out the Stampotique challenge blog for more inspiration. Girls created stunning projects!




My second page is for 13arts but I also use a few stamps from Stampotique. Pop in to the blog to see more photos and step by step tutorial.

fish and chips without chips

Thank you for your lovely comments. It's good to know that you are there. You are a big motivation for me and also an inspiration. Thank you xxx

Few days ago I made two new art journals. I bought watercolour paper and sewed the pages together using coptic stitch. I'm sure I made something wrong because not all stitches are the same but the most important my journal is stitched and not falling apart. 

The pages are simple. I used Galeria acrylic paint, 13arts stencil, TCW stencils designed by Kasia and black pen.




On Friday I'm off to Ireland for a weekend to meet my crafty friends. It will be very inspiring and emotional weekend. I hope I will find the mojo around the lovely girls.

Back to beginning

Where was I? In fields, garden etc. The weather in the UK has been so nice this summer that there wasn't any chance to sit in my studio. But there is also the other reason...simply I couldn't find mojo. I couldn't create anything...no ideas and everything which I made was rubbish :P
Last week I was so depressed (lol) that I thought about leaving my two lovely DT's. Don't even ask...
The only rescue for me in the situations like this is back to the beginning...what does it mean? Back to things which I like to create most.

Here is a spread which I have made for Stampotique Originals challenge.
The only stamp on these pages is Raindrops designed by myself. The rest of the images are painted. I used Galeria acrylic paints, oil pastels, colour pencils and TCW stencils designed by Kasia.

nobody somebody

I published my first project as a DT member for Stampotique Originals challenge blog on 8th August 2012. Long long time ago...Amazing journey! Thank you ladies!
This weeks Stampotique challenge theme is 'Refresh it'. On my art journal pages you will find a stamp which I used on my first project for Stampotique blog - 'Heads'. I really like this stamp, it is time to refresh it!

Icing...

Wooohooo, articles written, projects for next few days made. Only one 'small' crochet blanket and a few more walls to paint and I will be free to enjoy working in my studio. Hopefully...

Sometime ago I was playing with textures and Tattered Angels Glimmer mists. I bought five of them a few years ago and still have got them. I don't know why I keep them probably because I love them and treasure them. I will buy more after winning the lottery on Tuesday ;)

My dear friend said that some areas of my page look like icing. I promise it isn't. Haven't got any icing at home, a lot of chocolate - yes, but no icing. The pages are made from pieces of Sodalicious paper, masking tape, kitchen towel, cardboard, white gesso and of course mists - three colours. As always doesn't matter how hard I try I can't make a project without 13arts product. This time I used 13arts Splash! white for the splashes on my pages.

Autumn is coming...

What a good feeling to have a few minutes for my blog! It looks like an abandoned place but I'm still here even if you don't see me regularly. Between redecorating my house, walking dogs and a lot of work I still try to visit your blogs. After all of this no time is left for mine blog. But I will try to show you my project which you haven't seen, there is a lot of them in my cupboard.

First thing first I would like to thank you all my new YouTube channel followers. I'm really happy that you enjoy my videos. You are my motivation to make more videos! Thank you.

Sometime ago I made a video showing art journal pages. You can see them below. I used a lot of 13arts products. More information and photos you will find on 13arts blog. Don't forget to pop in to my YouTube channel where you will find the video showing how I have made these pages.


Yesterday was Wednesday, it means that you will find a new challenge on Stampotique Originals blog!!! Great theme and so many inspiration on the blog! The Girls have created stunning projects. Have a look you won't be disappointed!

If you love Stampotique stamps and have a profile on Facebook you should check Stampotique Originals page on FB. You can find there a lot of inspiration but also will be able to take a part in ATC trades! It's a great fun! I joined the trade sometime ago and I received fabulous ATC's and cards ever! Thank you Corrie and Maxine! I also created something for the trade...

I take the chance

There is one place - my favourite one - in the internet world where every Monday you find a step by step video showing a new art journal page. Have you heard about France Papillon? If not what are you doing here? Check out her blog! France is a lovely person and an amazing artist. Last Monday she celebrated her 100th Journal Monday.

To celebrate 100 JoM I'm sharing a step by step video. The video shows one of my favourites techniques. It's simple and effective. 




Here is a step by step video where you can see how I have made these pages. 
It's a short video, I've made it sitting in the garden and enjoying beautiful British summer ;)



A few days ago on 13arts blog I showed very similar page, using the same technique. 
If you prefer step by step with pictures pop in to the blog. Also you will find there a product list.
