Guest post for Mrs Brimbles Creative Arty Team.
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!
ART JOURNALING GROUP CHALLENGES:
Hi all, so excited, with the new news. I have a set up an Art Journaling Group on Facebook - Kerrymay._.Makes a Mess please do pop over and join in the creative fun.
I thought it would be nice to do a bit of a 'Creative Showcase' of what I have been up to at the end of the month, a bit like a monthly review, but of my art journaling and creative makes, not just of my planners. So January...
Ahhhh January you little terror. It really does sneak up on you and then grabs you by the horns saying "I will make this the most miserable month". That said and in-spite of having the flu and working ridiculous hours for the school production I am directing (Wizard of Oz), I have managed some downtime to create a little bit.
