Mini journaling ...

Ha ha! Just a quick post today to share my latest mini journal page - 'Agatha Crown' by Magda Polokow for Stampotique Originals. Isn't she cute?! And just the perfect size for my mini Moleskine art journal.

Quickie mini journaling

I just love working in my mini journal (I use a 15x10cm Moleskine). I had a background in my journal which I didn't like so I covered it up and then added a scan of one of my doodle pages (getting plenty of mileage out of this one LOL!) Giving myself a pep talk here about my procrastination tendencies ......

If you don't usually work this small, try it! Ir's quick, it's fun, and it's a great size to carry around.

A new month.

Phew! I got a bit behind with my calendar for a while and I hate that! I've been doing this for a number of years now and occasional gaps and missing months are inevitable but I'm not happy when it happens so I'm always relieved more than anything else when I manage to catch up. My apologies for the missing link last month - what can I say? Life got in the way! Feel free to link up twice to make up for the missing link at the beginning of September.

Don't forget you can catch up on the Facebook group and on flickr too.

Right, I'm off to get ready of october now ......

The evolution of a doodle...

I'm still happily working away in my Art Doodle Love book. This book has really encouraged me to draw, and then draw some more! I love that I can take it around with me easily, and consequently I have drawn in the book here, there and everywhere! Here's a just a few pics to show you how the pages evolve.

I mostly use a combination of Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils, along with a fine PITT pen and a white Signo Uniball.

And if there are bits on a page that I like, I scan them and then use them in other projects!

Whimsical animal art journaling!

This background sat around untouched for a while ... I couldn't think what I wanted to add to it but then I had the urge to paint a rabbit!

Usually whatever I'm playing about with in my art journal makes its way into my regular art journaling class at Art from the Heart (UK). We began by sketching a few whimsical designs before trying them out on tags:

And then we moved onto a larger scale in our art journals. Here's the finished results. Fab!

And I just wanted to share my latest pen find with you all ... Ooh, I love a new pen :-) This one is a Molotow paint pen with a brush tip, which takes the pain out of brush script writing on your journal pages. What a find!

And finally, the latest classes at Art from the Heart (UK) are now up on the website, so go and take a peek! Have a look *HERE* for all the details.
