Today it’s heavy rain and strong winds outside my window, so I really don’t want to venture outside for any reason at all. I’d much rather stay inside where it’s warm and cozy and create an art journal page in my Volume of the Dolls with some happy and bright colours, with some Tim Holtz paper dolls and a little grunge and distress thrown in for good measure!
The two stencils I’ve used in this double page spread are my two new designs for January. Links can be found below!
To watch the entire creation process from start to finish of my double page art journal spread, simply click on the YouTube link.
The first Mission: Inspiration of 2020 and the first in January, and I’m creating it in my new bespoke 9″ circle art journal that I hand stitched a few days ago.
If you missed the video where I created the journal by hand, you can catch up and watch it by clicking the YouTube link below.
The Mission: Inspiration art challenge for January and of course for 2020 is going to be slightly different to last year’s challenges. This year we’ve dropped the list of ingredients and adopted a monthly theme instead. We have of course kept the words for inspiration and the tri-colour combo. It’s good to change and mix things up a little now and again!
The prompt card can be seen below. Please feel free to download a copy for your own use!

For today’s page I wanted to create another double page spread in my new altered book the Volume of the Dolls which, if you haven’t seen it already, is where I’m trying to use up some of the small mountain of die cut paper dolls from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range. Over the past few years I’ve amassed a fair few of these little gems and this new/old altered book seemed a good place to create a themed piece of interactive artwork!
