Art Journal Flip - Mini Art Journal


What do you do when you want to work with glitter?  You make a mini art journal that you can create and play in as you check out the video above.

I love creating art journals and finding ways to add all the amazing toppers and papers that I have.  In this journal I have been experimenting with glitter and using stencils, don't think I will ever run out of glitter, but it does get every where - even saw some on the dogs face!

 If you love creating with papers and glitter having a small journal that you can add to on a regular basis can be enjoyable and be part of your artist date!  You also get a sneak peek of an art journal that I went to town with the glitter on lol!

This one had to be created in layers to allow it to dry, but it was a lot of fun.

Arts and Wellness Café - Inspired living

In the Arts and Wellness Café, this month the word is Inspired and comfort, we will be checking out some great creative ideas and resources.

Check out the video below...

In the café this month I share a textile project, book review, art journal and more!  We also look at the things that can keep us inspired and also provide elements of comfort.

We take a look at this work in progress that will eventually be a wall-hanging.  It is made up of Shibori tie dyed fabric, painted fabric and stitches.   I am hoping to add some embellishments on the piece as well.

You get a flip through of this mini art journal.  I had created a variety of toppers that were looking for a home, I also experimented with glitter and stencils in places.

These smaller art journals are great for all those smaller toppers that you may have that want to be put to good use and you.  You will also hear the 'Tip and Question of the week'  Looking forward to having you join me.
