Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Gratitude Journal

I saw a 'bookbinding' tutorial on one of Effy Wild's lessons and put together a journal made out of watercolour paper. I put together a gratitude journal to make me think, every day, about what I am grateful for.

As this wasn't 'for anyone' I decided to just mess around with the pages - I used gelato's then water then a bit of gesso over the top. I then did some stamping on tissue paper and stuck it down with matte medium. 

For this page I used some inktense blocks, then washi tape then stamped on some kitchen roll and stuck it down with matte medium again. I can try different techniques and it doesn't matter if it's not perfect as it's a journal for me :)

For the tags I dragged some new hero arts ink stamps across them and then used punches on scraps of paper for the days.

Hope your weekend is going well!
