Creative Colour Charts

Looking for ways the creat cool color charts? Then have a look at this idea using supplies from Lulu Art of course! Colour charts - I love to make them but often seem to fall into the trap of having them be purely for 'utility reasons' - I can be a little too practical on occasion. So I've been looking at ways to make them more exciting and interesting while still retaining their original purpose - which is show off... Read more →

Wintery Art Journal Page with Washi Background

Today I felt like creating something with a photo of my cat taken over Christmas - who can resist a holiday snap! I decided to use this as an opportunity to have a little play and experiment with a few new techniques and ideas in my art journal. I think the key to this one was the mixed media layered background using washi and deco tape, light molding paste, watercolor paint and sprays, to add soft and subtle color. Let... Read more →

I can't wait to show you how I've created my own blue wren mask and then used this as negative space in my art to create a simple, but eye-catching art journal page.

Playing With the New Magical Shakers from Lindys

Sparkly hello!!! This week I've had my first look and spent time playing with the new Magical Shakers from Lindy's, released at Creativation 2017 (CHA). There are 10 new colours, and they are a fabulous rainbow of yumminess! Now they are the same formula as normal Magicals (which are a powdered watercolor dye), so you can do all the same things you would normally do, but they are in a fancy new bottle making them easier to use and a...

How To Create a Dark Watercolor Galaxy with Amazing Patterns for a Star Trek Journal Page

Ever wondered what the simplest way to create a killer dark watercolor image is and still keep it interesting and vibrant? Well for today's project I needed to do exactly that - create a dark image, full of interest and pattern using watercolors! Why - well I'm on a bit of a mission - Karl Urban (one of my Top 10 favourite actors of all time) is going to be at Comic-Con in Sydney 2016 and so am I (insert... Read more →

Watercolored Autumn Leaf Journal Page

It's time! Time for another Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge! This month's palette is so completely Autumn colours - reds, oranges, yellows and green. The only thing I could think of when I saw this was 'maple leaves'. While we don't have maple trees where I live in the tropics, or Autumn for that matter (it's green here pretty much all year round!) - I do love the changing colours on the leaves when I visit anywhere with a cold...

Scenic Layer Card - C.A.S.

Today I'm going to show you a simple but stunning technique using Magicals from Lindy's Stamp Gang. This process proved so simple, stress-free and downright gorgeous that I'm thinking of using this technique for my Christmas cards - though it could be adapted for any occasion. You won't need many supplies to make this, but is is important to use a smooth watercolour card, a good self-adhesive stencil and a highly pigmented watercolour (you know Magicals are my favourite variety!)....

Mail Art Made Easy with Magicals

Today I was inspired to play with matching envelopes and cards and thought I'd try something simple with my Magicals from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I have to admit that I don't send as many cards or decorated envelopes as I used to - so when I do send something I like to try and make it look a little special and let the recipient know I'm thinking of them - my version of sending a big hug through the mail....

Simple Watercolor Journal Page Background

Today I'm going to step away from my usual page style for a change and create something simple. There are days when I just want to put a thought on paper and add a simple illustration, so that's what I'm doing today. Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays are perfect for creating layered and super sparkly pages, but are equally wonderful for paler and simpler artworks. They are also a dream to journal over and worked beautifully with my Copic Multi Liners.... Read more →
