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:
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 have had the idea to make my own watercolour journaling cards / project life style cards for a while now, just never had the time to give it a go. So during half term week (I work as a teacher), I decided to give it a bash. I must say I do love the finished result. Credit goes out to http://joannesharpe.com for the inspiration.
The third installment in the Art Journaling Mini Series is all about scraping and rolling acrylic paint to create different effects for your mixed media backgrounds and art/creative journals. These techniques are so easy to achieve they could also be done with your children.

Please note the final piece in the video is not a finished product, I wasn't creating anything in particular, I'm just showing you the techniques, they don't all need to be applied at once.
