Just sharing an art journal page that I created in my Readers Digest Art Journal (it’s the art journal book I got down at Marta’s retreat at Handmade at Helens) 😉
Anyway.. I thought I would share art journal page number #2 with you, I am still trying to get the hang of art journaling.. I’ll keep practicing 😉
As always, thank you for popping over and your continued support to my wee blog, it is much appreciated x

I was out for lunch today at Loch Leven’s Larder and whilst we were waiting for a table, we had a browse around the shop, where they have loads of gifty things and I happened to spy pom pom paper clips, they were silver clips with white pom poms, and they were not cheap! … now I thought to myself, I can make them!, I have all the stuff in my wee shed!… I will make some when I get home, and I did 🙂 and here they are 😉
- Pom Poms – Hobbycraft sell huge bags of them
- Paper Clips – I bought a plastic tub from Asda for £2 (it had paper clips and Push pins and other clips in it)
- UHU Glue £1 from the Pound shop (really any glue will do use what you have to hand)
Now these a fairly inexpesive to make and look really nice and if you have kids they will go down a treat, plus I am sure they will love to have a go at making these too!
I hope that you will have a go at making some too… I’m sure your children/grandchildren will love these for when they start back at school… hey they are even great for taking into the office 🙂
As always, thank you for popping round
I have a couple of cute little handmade books to share with you…. I attended a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh this afternoon on button hole book binding with Cass Barron and it was such a fab workshop, if you ever get a chance to take a class with Cass jump at the chance as you will not be disappointed here is a link to her Facebook Page 😊
And here is a view inside at the signatures
We finished our first books with some spare time left over so we got to start making another book, which I completed once I got home
I plan to make another couple tomorrow … they are so much fun to make..
i will leave a link to the stampers grove workshop list here as Cass has a few more workshops planned throughout the summer, they are not to be missed 🙂
thank you for popping in, as always 😊
I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too 🙂
I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..
I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..
I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too 🙂
I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!
Thanks for popping in
Today I am sharing 2 art journal pages with you 🙂 … now if you have followed my blog for a while you will not have seen any art journal pages because I struggle with them big time!
So I headed over to Stampers Grove in Edinburgh yesterday to attend a workshop with Lorna Figures called Pot Luck Art Journaling and I really enjoyed myself… and managed to get one page finished and another page started which is a huge accomplishment and I kinda quite like the concept now.. so I am now the proud owner of a lovely new art journal, ranger apron and some Dina Wakeley Scribble Sticks 🙂
First picture is my finished page using my new scribble sticks 🙂
and this is my second page.. not quite there yet with this one .. but I will share it again with you once I finish it and i’m happy with it.. this page I used distress oxide inks
I am on holiday now for the next two weeks so hope to be up in my shed a lot more creating lots of crafty goodness…
My next project is going to be a travel journal, I have everything I need to make one and I have been itching to get it started so watch this space 😉
As always, thank you for popping round
