Winter Bag Handmade Journal

 

Hi, here I am again!

Today I am sharing a handmade journal that I’ve made using the ‘Vintage Winter Journal Set‘ from The Art & Craft Therapy Room. This kit is now on sale!

And again, for this journal I have used only the digital kit, book pages, lined and computer paper dyed with food coloring. And yes, for the cover I’ve used the top part of a cat litter bag painted with shoe polish.

 

Dying the paper with the food coloring and the paper dried in the electric heating! Shhhh this thing stains.

 

 

Using empty tea bags for mini envelopes. Silly me didn’t take a picture of the decorated one because it’s in the flip through video and after recording that one I packed the journal to mail it…

 

Getting the signatures ready.

More to come soon!

Hey guys,

It’s been a while but here I am to share with you the latest news.

My life had a huge turn, my craft room is close for now. All my materials are packed and in a storage facility while I am travelling around Europe.

That doesn’t mean that I am not working with art because I am. I am the founder or The Art & Craft Therapy Room.

At the Art & Craft Therapy Room we have a blog, and if you would like to contribute please click here.

We also have a store that sells art materials. Yes, it has lots of room for improvement and we are working really hard on it. I am also working on two more projects alongside The Art & Craft Room so bear with me… We are also working on a way to create a charity to help people heal with art with part of the profits, but more on that project later on.

So, if you want to subscribe to our work, please click here. Oh! And don’t forget to like our Facebook page and share the love.

Thank you for your support.

In Love & Gratitude,
Denise

Secret Pieces ~ Handmade Journal

Hi everyone,

This was a journal that I’ve made for a swap.

I’ve made a video… Please be kind… The quality of the video doesn’t seem much better than the pictures… That’s the best I can do with the current conditions.

My pronunciation needs a big deal of improvement and I had to stop watching the thing so I could stop slapping myself in words such as ‘difference’ and ‘hugs’… Oh well, I could not record the all thing again to correct myself. Hopefully next time I’ll do better.

Cheap Storage Set ~ Recycled boxes

Hello everyone and Happy 2017!

Storage and organisation doesn’t have to be expensive, at least for me and at this moment 🙂

I have been decluttering and purging since at least November, at some point my place looked like a war zone… anyway, it’s been a slow process but it is moving forward.

One of the problems that I have encountered since start making projects other than scrapbooking is how much space I need to keep up with all the different materials, especially when it comes to the recycling stuff. Because, I can throw the cardstock from the packagings out and then buy chipboard or I can save it and re-use it, and by now you all already know that I am recycling obsessed. It’s one of my ways to pay my rent on this amazing planet that provides us with everything for free and asks nothing in return, so what about a little respect?

However, I need to put a limit on how much stuff I keep otherwise when do you stop saving?

The thing is, at this moment I do not want to buy any fancy storage unit so, I got some boxes from the supermarket and because cheap storage doesn’t have to be ugly… I like mine pretty 😀  … anyway, I’ve decorated them to match my stencil binders and I love it!
