A christmas themed page for this months blog post for Anna (Mrs Brimbles) using her fabulous tutorials on watercolour resist from the November patreon workshop video. I have seen this month that Anna has been using the Gansai Tambi Watercolours in gold (Starry Colors) and I just had to get some...they are stunning. I have been so inspired by the content on her patreon page these last two months that I really could have created a million things.I decided to focus on 3 things: Watercolour resist, using the Starry Colors paints and playing around with the December collage sheets.

Beginning the journey into art journaling can sometimes be scary; not knowing where to start or what tools and equipment you need, thinking it won't be good enough, not having any inspiration... sound familiar? It needn't be.
Art journals are a means of self expression and are ultimately for YOU, no one else. So stop judging yourself and get going and go with the flow, you soon won't be able to stop those creative juices from flowing. Read on for 10 ideas to get you started.
Guest post for Mrs Brimbles Art Creative Team
I see a lot of posts in the planner and creative journal groups asking for ideas on using their printables, papers and creative kits. For this post I am using Anna's patreon resources (workshops, videos and printables) to give you some inspiration on how you might use them in your own planners, creative journals, art journals and on memory keeping pages.

Well it’s finally Autumn, my favourite season, but that’s no reason not to still create pages with hints of Summer right? The collage sheets from Mrs Brimbles Patreon are stunning and allowed me to do just that. I have created a page by cutting up her artwork collage sheets that she created originally for canvas work. I must say I love the final result of the art journal page.
I am so excited to be on the Brimbles Creative Team and even more excited to write my first blog post as part of the team. I have been engrossed in Anna's Patreon videos, there is so much content and it is all so informative. In addition to the video tutorials, chatty vlogs and time lapse creation videos there are also monthly downloads of amazing collage sheets (one of my loves at the minute). I love creating art using collage sheets, they are so versatile and I like having the freedom to cut up someone's art work to create your own feels almost like I am recycling, but still having a sense of the original artwork in the piece too.
The collage to journal page process:
Woo hoo, so proud to announce that I made it on to the Mrs Brimbles Arty Creative Team with these other amazing creatives, so exciting. I would have posted earlier, but I have been so busy at work these last few weeks with Ofsted inspectors and a faculty review.
I can't wait to share with you all the arty creations and hope that I can do them justice. It is the kick I need actually to get back in to art journaling and doodling, as other than creative journaling I have done very little art of late.
I will be sharing my creations from Mrs Brimbles exclusive Patreon content which you can check out here - www.patreon.com/mrsbrimbles
You can also check out her two online courses
- Unicorn Magic
- Marblous Marble
I can't wait to get started

Hi all, just a quick round up of what I have been up to over the end of term school holidays...aww, it's so lovely to have a break from work and so nice to be able to catch up on my planners, creative journaling, smash books, art and blog. I really have been using the break for a bit of me time... the marking can wait. I can't believe it is Easter already, where is time going? Crazy!
