“More Alike…” – Page 3 – Volume 2 of the Dolls – Art Journal Collage

It’s been a while since I last did a page in my 2nd Volume of the Dolls journal. I had a fancy to create something a little bit whimsical with some mushrooms and of course some of the Tim Holtz paper dolls! Click below to watch how I created this double page spread in my handmade lay flat journal.

“Beauty is..” – Simple Layered Spotlight Technique Art Journal Page.

I wanted to play around with a different type of spotlight technique in my art journal. This time I’m playing with circle cut outs to create a colour spotlight effect rather than leaving white spots in which to create the spotlight effect.

I’m also rediscovering an old book my father found for me in a second hand book shop. Now the copyright has run out…I’m free to use it however I wish! Click below to watch my entire creation process from start to finish.

Page 5 – Volume of the Dolls “Love This Life”

“Love this Life”

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!
