Journal Notes with Helmar


Hi, it's my turn over at Helmar USA today and I am sharing a journal I made to take notes of my ideas, sketches and/or to-do list.  It is small enough to carry in my art bag or even my purse.  Well I do carry a big purse ...

Rather than downloading a lot of photos I decided to make a quick video on youtube:






It is funny how you start off with one idea for creating a journal cover and it just morphs into something different.  Does this happen to you?  Well it helps when you are using good product and I love using my Helmar Adhesives.  I have been using this brand for years. 

Today I used:







This journal was fun to make and I loved doodling on my book and getting a little drawing in.  Below you will find the list of products I used besides my Helmar.

Leaky Shed Studio "Scatter Joy" Card




Hi today I would like to share with you my "Scatter Joy" stacked flower card using Leaky Shed Studio "Bird Branch" chipboard.

I would like to start with photos of my process; using lots of paint, stickles and layers of paper.  I also used the Outlines Rubber stamps that I have had for eons but still love.  This flower stack is from the "Blossoms" series.


Painted the base of my Kraft Card with Art Anthology paint


Prepared my chipboard with a layer of Pro Art gesso


Painted on some dimensional paint on top of gesso


Painted the leaves with an alcohol ink Copic Marker


Used Ranger "emboss it" and some Gary Burlin clear embossing powder on the 
Leaky Shed Studio chipboard


Finished card with layers of bazzill, my stamped and fuzzy cut flowers and 
spreckles of white paint



Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head on over to Leaky Shed Studio today and say hello.

Happy Scrapping ...
