Things That Make Me Happy:
Facebook Group Challenge Collab with the Lollipop Box Club
I have had so much fun creating 3 pieces of art, journaling and scrapbooking this week, all based on my favourite theme; Things that make me happy. This was a two week Facebook challenge hosted by Lisa in her Facebook Group Lollipop Box Club Chat and over on my Journaling group Kerrymay Makes A Mess. (Challenge now over, but both groups host challenges throughout the year).
It's been way too long since I did any creative journal with me videos so join me in my latest creative journaling session and journal with me with using beautiful vintage and retro ephemera. Here I am creating 2 journal pages of a recent visit to Nottingham. I love creating memory keeping pages in a smash book / scrapbook style way. I have used goodies from the Crafty Bonbons Box and a bag from The Lollipop Box Club (video and links below).
It's been a long time since 1, that I have created any watercolour art and 2, that I have done a post for Anna Brim, but yay, I can say that I am happy to be back doing both. I was so inspired by Anna's watercolour snowdrops video tutorial over on her patreon page - patreon.com/mrsbrimbles, that I decided to add my own twist to it using Colourcraft Crystal Colours Brusho as well as watercolour and stamping ink. I still used drawing gum to create a resist for the snowdrops. You can see my full process in the video below.

Yay, it's nearly Christmas. I love the first of December, I always feel so festive. Today I have filmed a flip through of my Christmas Planner set up for 2018 using an updated version of last year's planner. I also have some exciting Mini Christmas Journaling prompts for you to try out. I will also be sharing some of my Christmas planner spreads and layouts from my planners so far this year. Finally I will show you in the video a bit of creative Christmas journaling and memory keeping as I won't be doing a December Daily this year ... phew!

Christmas Planner Set Up 2018
Hi everyone, wow it's nearly Christmas, time flies! Today I have been playing around with a few things from Anna Brims Patreon goodies to create a Wintery themed art journal page. I'm in love with this page, the colour, the texture, the mood, it all sings to me and makes me warm and fuzzy.
For this page I followed a video tutorial of Anna creating a moon page like this one, but with a painted unicorn... you can get this as a collage sheet and I tell you now, it's stunning (you can see a sneak of it below in the photograph).
