About Me

Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Art Journalling

Wow, what a weekend I've had with the mega talented Dyan Reavely!  I've never tried art journaling before and when I saw an advert for a full weekend of workshops at the Artistic Stamper in Faversham with Dyan, I knew I'd have to treat myself (because I'm worth it!!!)

It was non-stop inkiness for 2 whole days as my still very inky fingers (and clothes) will testify.  I always think that if you can't take a joke you shouldn't sign up!

Anyway, here are a few near completed pages from the journal I started at the weekend.

The start of a page.  Lots of Dylusion Spray Inks and stamps with some masking.

And how it looked when it was finished!

A couple more that I haven't quite finished yet.

I think the main thing I learned was to let go and not try to be so precise.....just to go with the flow.

Well, that's all for today.  I'll be back on Wednesday for WOYWW and my new DT project for Creative Studios (did you catch Sam's shows on C&C on Saturday...she is so talented).  Until then, have a happy, crafty few days and many thanks for visiting.
