Bonus: Page 7 – Volume of the Dolls – St Valentine’s Day Quickie

I’ve managed to sneak in a quickie video to celebrate St Valentine’s Day in my Volume of the Dolls art journal. The video is a quick speed through with no talking, but there are some on screen annotations for each product used. I hope you like this sneaky little bonus video and your day is filled with warm fuzzy feelings!

Happy St Valentine’s Day!

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!

Heliathus 6×6 Stencil
Particles 6×6 Stencil

“Volume of the Dolls” Mixed Media Altered Book

Today I’ve decided to use up some of my Tim Holtz paper doll stash in a dedicated altered book to be used as an art journal. Before I can start using up the dolls in the pages, I’ve got to alter and prepare the book for first use!

To watch how I altered the book from start to finish, click the YouTube link below!

Keep an eye out for some pages being created in this new book in the next few days!
