Great news; I've updated the Members Only Area with some new goodies and freebies. I have added 5 lovely collage sheets from my Brusho art that you can use in your art and journals to cut up or use as backgrounds. And if you missed it there is the Self Care Travelers Notebook template too.
Hello everyone, brrr, it's been so cold. In weather like this I like nothing better than watching the Winter Olympics from the comfort of my warm home. This week I made a Winter Olympics journal page using resources from Anna Brims February patreon downloads, they were just perfect for this. I used to be an ice skater myself from aged 7 to 16 and competed in many competitions and grueling training sessions from 6am, then school and back on the ice after until 9pm daily.
When I saw Anna's ice skater image that she had painted I was gobsmacked at how similar it looked to a photo of me from an ice show when I skated to Wish Upon a Star, so knew it was perfect for my page.

I love Instagram and looking through my photos. I thought it would be such a nice idea to keep these photos forever in an actual journal. Here I show you how to make a beautiful Instagram Photo Album/creative journal to store all of your Instagram photos. It's perfect for memory keeping and saving your memories in a photo book and much nicer than a regular photo album.
An unboxing of a beautiful junk journal kit to make your own stunning vintage junk journals and altered books using a kit by Queen Mabel & Doris on Facebook and on Etsy. This is such a pretty kit and could be used in so many ways. Have a watch to see it in all of it's loveliness.
