Journals


Been making some journals using Gelli prints inspired by Birgit Koopsen 31 days of Gelli prints challenge. As you can see I made lots out of my prints and they will make some nice craft gifts.



These mini journals which are just 7cm by 5 cm were inspired by a YouTube video by Teresa Morgan went slightly off piste and have used them for my 2018 gratitudes rather than just jotting them down on scraps and dropping them into a box. Will need to make more of these.

Cats and Dogs

Well a cat and a dog to be precise!
My latest journal pages. 
My little cat is in a Gelli print journal I have been making. 


The dog was painted into a ledger journal.

I created this little fish for a swap using paperclay. 
Once dried I painted it with Fresco paints and coloured Pitt pens.

February Review

Well February seems to have gone with a blink of an eye and I didn’t think I had achieved much what with life getting in the way but I have done more than I thought!


My first drawing of an animal...a hare.


A couple of birthday cards....colouring is therapeutic!


And even managed to sew a new toy basket for my dog!

Nurture Girl







It took three weeks to make but was well worth the time. My nurture girl was made with paperclay, then painted mainly with Fresco paints and the details/shading added with Pitt Pens.
