Another Page In My “Meadow Green” Art Journal

I’m really enjoying having space to journal in my art journals again. Sometimes I leave the journal spots empty so I have a place to go when the journaling bug bites.

The little card at the right slips into the decorated envelope there. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a veggie garden feel here.

And the fact that I’m using some of my sweet happy mail gifties makes my heart sing!

I made a process video of this page on my YouTube Channel if you’d like to listen to my prattling…I mean commentary, head on over.

I’ve decided to ramp up my video making, so the “Another Video Up!…” title might get a bit redundant, so I’m going to start announcing it within the posts.

Well, I hope you like my little art journal, I have about eight more pages to go!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Talk to you soon,

“Meadow Green” Art Journal Process Video Up!

This is an art journal that goes waaaayyy back! Another one of those projects that stalled out.

But, I’ve fallen in love with it again. My biggest obstacle was the page size. But, because I’ve been in the mood to do some journaling on my pages again, I’ve decided it’s time to give it a go!

In my video, I do a flip through and comment about some of the finished pages before I move on to this. Oh, the drama here! But in the end I come up with something I like.

So, if your interested in seeing how this page came together, please head on over to my YouTube Channel and have a look!

 

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

The Last Page in My “Inky” Journal

So, the other day whilst filming my “Memory Journal Tag Page” vid, I figured since I had the camera set up, I might as well film another video.

If you have been following me for a while, this journal will be pretty familiar…oh, the angst!

Well, I’m happy to say that this is the last page of this journal! I’m even happier to say that I have had so much fun working in it, I’m making another one. A couple of people asked me to make a video of the page painting/inking process, so that will be happening soon also.

I had a tough time with my “Quack Grass” piece, but it was one of those things I couldn’t let go of, and I’m super happy it’s finally found a home.

Yes, I get attached to small pieces of paper…but you knew that, right!?

I left a little journaling spot on the last page to jot down a few thoughts. This journal and I have not been fast friends, so a little farewell note is definitely called for.

So, goodbye little journal!

I hope that you will take some time to visit my YouTube Channel and check out my latest video. Please let me know what you think!

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great week,

Shoppe News! Kitschy Ephemera Packs!

By now you probably know how I feel about kitsch…kinda awesome!

In January I made some pretty kitschy art journals, so I thought it would be fun to put some ephemera packs together too.

Filled with all manner of kitschy goodness, cards, game pieces, images, postage stamps, the usual suspects.

Of course with all the orange and green goodness that befits the 60’s and 70’s.

50+ pieces in each pack, including some pretty cool paperclips to decorate your project.

I made eight of these, and each one is totally unique. Please pop over to my Etsy shoppe to see the full line.

…and as always,

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great week,

~Patty

 

 

YouTube Video Up!

Yay! Another video finished and posted on my YouTube channel!

It was so much fun to make, I actually made two!

I was having so much fun that the video stretched into an hour. No amount of editing was going to make an impact, so I split into two.

“Quote Journal 2, the Sequel” is ready to go and I’ll be uploading it some time next week!

In the mean time, if your interested in seeing the process video of this page spread, head on over to my YT channel!

As always,

Thanks for stopping in,

Have an awesome week,

~Patty
