ATC Video Swap Hop – Valentine’s Day


Once again I’ve teamed up with my little band of ATC video swap hoppers to bring you a Valentine’s Day ATC swap. My ATC is the middle one on the top row. The other 5 are the ATCs sent by my fellow swap hoppers!

The idea (if you’ve never seen one of our seasonal swap hops) is that 6 people create a series of 6 ATCs then send one out to each of the other 5 swappers, keeping one back for yourself! In the end all 6 people end up with 6 different ATCs on the same theme.

My fellow hoppers are listed below with links to their YouTube channels.

To watch how I created my ATCs and to see the others in more detail simply click the YouTube link below. Links to the other participants videos and YouTube channels can also be found in the video description below my video on YouTube!

I hope you enjoy watching the creation process of my ATCs as much as I did creating them and I hope you’ll take the time to visit each of the swap hoppers in turn.


I was hoping to be able to link to the girls videos as part of the gallery of images above, but my blog doesn’t seem to want to play ball today! So instead I’ve provided a link to each of the girls channels and videos below! Happy Hopping! XO

Cupid Challenge with Gina Ahrens

Over the Christmas and Holiday period I reached out to my friend Gina Ahrens in the US and asked her if she’d like to collaborate on a little Valentine’s Day themed project. I’m happy to say she accepted and so today we’re revealing our Cupid Challenge. A few weeks ago I  sent Gina a little video footage and an envelope of ephemera so that she could create a Valentine themed project and she did the same for me. My art journal page above was created almost exclusively with the resources that Gina sent me, apart from paints and such.

To watch the video and resources that Gina sent me and to watch the whole process of creation of the art journal page, simply click the image below.

If you’d like to visit Gina’s Channel and watch what she did with the package that I sent to her click her image below! Enjoy!

Art Journal Page – Wings

I this art journal page I’ve used a new downloadable digi art journal collage set called “Wings” which is available to purchase from my website store now. For more information click the image below.

The page is an 8″x8″ piece of 300gsm (140lb) water colour card stock from Winsor & Newton and I’ve teamed the collage image up with a selection of ephemera from my collection. The background colours are mainly white gesso and Neocolor II water soluble crayons from Faber Castell, which are amazing to work with. The quote is one of 6 included in the digi download sheets along with a variation of belly dancing angel with golden wings!

As usual I have filmed the entire process of creation from start to finish, which you can watch, if you’re so inclined, by clicking the YouTube image below. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed creating it and that you’ll find it in your heart to give it a thumbs up!
