August Craft Space Envy

August. Another craft space envy tour!

I was amazed by the amount of stuff! I don't consider myself a really materialistic person but just looking at that stuff I so want! OK get level headed. Sometimes I feel restricted by the craft and art products that I have, sometimes I feel like I need more materials, well I do after looking at what other people create anyway! Bad I know. But then I am tight. I very rarely buy supplies and when I do I try to make them last as long as possible for as many different pieces as possible.

Anyway, enjoy and envy all those stamps and stuff!

My travel art journal kit and summer seaside holiday vlog

We went on holiday to the lovely traditional quintessentially British sea side, Wells next the Sea in Norfolk for a week. It was lovely, so relaxing and the sun was shining. I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a vlog whilst we were there and share some of my holiday with you. Of course I took my journal and some supplies with me and I also share those with you, so what I did and the products and tools that I took.

Come along with me, all together now.... "oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea"...

Watercolour journal flip from 2007

We are still unpacking boxes. Lots of boxes. We are getting there though and it is actually quite fun to re-discover your belongings. I found a water colour journal / pad and I thought I would do a flip through of it for you:

Vlog It!

I have been really bad at updating my blog of late. I just find it quite time consuming to take photos, download them and resize etc and then think of something to write, I just find it so much easier to sit in front of the web cam and talk and talk and talk! I love to talk lol!

So here you a vlog from me. I also share some artwork too!

My art and craft space room tour

I know it has been a long time coming but I have been working really hard on my little room and I can now finally show it to you! Yay!

It isn't tidy and I don't think it ever will be all that tidy because it is a working room. I don't want to worry about keeping it tidy and not feel free and able to create in it that would just be too stiffling.

The video is fairly long but I wanted to give you the brief and the mood board and the reason behind it as well as doing the actual tour.

Product Review: Cosmic Shimmer Mist

I went to a garden centre the other day and lo and behold they had a craft section. Yippppeeeee I said. I couldn't quite catch what my husband said but it did kind of have a groan mixed in there! Anyhoooooo, they had items in there that I had never seen before. They had a whole range of these little beauties.... Cosmic Shimmer Mist Spray.

Well I couldn't leave without making a purchase, that would be rude! So I couldn't decide which colours to get,  I mean they are all so beautiful indeed. I decided to get a purple, orange, green and blue. I couldn't wait to try them.

Now when you use them you need to give them a big old shake first because there are lots of glittery bits that do have a tendency to settle at the bottom. Other than that you can use them in the same way that you would any other spray. A word of warning though, do make sure you wash the spray nozzle after use as I found that it easily gets clogged up.

I loved all the colours and wouldn't certainly buy more. I liked that they gave a pearly irridescant shine to add just that little uplift to your project without being too glittery. What is more they dry as fast as alcohol inks which is great, no heat gunning at all so for impatient people like me that is fab. When you touch them once it is dry no residue comes off on your fingers like you can find with some glitter products.

The only down side to them is that when you use other mediums over the top they do seep through so just bear that in mind when you use them.

All in all a big thumbs up from me. Love it !!

How I set up my Filofax

I am finally there with my filofax so I thought I would do a video to show you how I set it all up. I made my own filofax inserts which I so totally love and these are for sale over in my etsy shop if you would like to purchase them too!
