Guest Design Post for Art and Soul Studio

Hey there everyone, sorry I have neglected the blog a little but life has got in the way!
So I am here to say Happy New Year to you all!
Now to start with I want to share a guest post I did for Art And Soul Studio back in December before the Christmas insanity set in!
This is a handmade art journal one signature thick using an A4 envelope that I painted as the cover….very simple and lots of fun! 

There are a heap of lovely layers on the cover and watercolour paper pages on the inside. I am going to work on filling it when I am away in January with very limited supplies, really pushing myself for 2018!

The front and back cover is all created as one piece with out thinking just doing layer over layer and keeping bits I liked!

A few details for you.

The main focal point is Dina Wakley's Stamp "Scribble Girl" with a few scribbles and paint shadows added.

Inside is one signature…. all simply joined together using a basic pamphlet stitch.

hope you liked it…and please note for those who know me.......I even used Purple LOL!
