Current In Progress Mixed Media Art Journal Pages

Hello (my how beautiful you are!)

Back to a proper 'weekly ramble' format this week, meaning this post is a quick snapshot of where my creativity is at & view of in progress stuff rather than any completed things.

My creativity has been going crazy the past week, but most especially the past 48 hours. I literally got zero sleep last night; ideas kept jumping, twisting and turning through my brain, I barely put my light out long enough for my eyes to notice let alone close. I am running on fumes today but I think it's gonna be worth it I have FINALLY found the structure(s) I want to create the Daily Rituals Class in (a class I have been trying to mould, shape and create for what feels like forever, all about about creating a daily creative journaling practice that supports you). So today I took my Ideas Journal to my outdoor studio and had a loooong Planning Session (a concept for creating I share in my Creative Goal Journaling Class) to form the Classes that will be (hopefully, with a bit of work) be coming soon...

The other main area my creativity has been channelled the past few days is journal pages.

Here's some in progress ones: 

Puppy dog needs some more layers and pen work I think

This is a 5 min collage I think I'm gonna leave as is, and do some more of these, very freeing

Here's some progress shots of a now finished one:

So that's the snapshot of my creative week. 
How has yours been? Share in the comments below, I'd love to hear (I read every one!) 

Have a great weekend
Much love

Using What You Create Art Challenge (with Video & Printable)


The Aprils Art Challenge is now OPEN on Journal Workshops with art video and free printable, where this month we are going to set about using what we’re creating.

Okay, okay I'll tell you what it is but only on here so shhh I didn't really share it m'kay? okay, we're making something I LOVE: journal spots! On the surface it seems simple enough challenge right? Well in the video I share creating my journal spots out of recycling, share my journal spot drawer (yep I have a huge journal spot drawer....if only that were the totality of my incriminating paper supplies!), share the pages in my everyday journal where I have used the journal spots (I set myself a challenge to make create journal spot pages everyday for a week) so there's actually more to think about than creating journal spots (but in an awesome, creative way). I also share a free journal spot printable for everyone to use.

Here’s a sneak peek of one of those weekly pages:

Much love
