Art Journaling Calendar - April 2013

Here is my April Art Journal Calendar.  I'm determined to use the copious amounts of craft supplies I have accumulated so have used a couple of napkins with birds and eggs, scraps of patterned paper from scrapbooking for my squares, stickers, paints, stencils/stamps and ink and the washi tape I recently bought.  I even used Dimensional Magic to highlight the Bird, eggs and butterflies.

I'm having so much fun doing the calendar challenge this time around ... I'm not overthinking it, just going with the flow.

My layout managed to make it to the header of the Facebook Group again ... stoked!

Paper Craft Festival fun ...

Yesterday saw myself, my sister Natalie and my friend Jean attend the Paper Craft Festival in Penrith.  It was Nat's first time at one of these shows and we had a lot of fun browsing the wares.

We did a class with the lovely Rachel Greig and created these amazing mini tag books.  We managed to get two completed in around 2 hours ... I was thrilled, as it takes me forever to complete unfinished class projects once I get home.




This Sydney book has already found a new home as we had Ferg's cousins Dearbhaile and Ciara with Gus come to stay with us for a week and this little book was the perfect gift to remember their trip to Sydney.


Nat & I also did a make and take with Michaela Laurie ( and created a very cute paper quilt luggage tag ... we even sewed it ourselves!
