Ive been having great fun experimenting with texture, I got a fabulous box of goodness called a stash box created by simply vintage for Hochanda and its just choc full of inspiration

I used a couple of the items to create some texture on a canvas

I used modge podge to adhere everything and made sure I completely saturated any fabric elements, then to start with the painting

Starlight paints by Imagination crafts available from Hochanda work fabulously with this sort of project.

I’m going to add a little more to this project but Ive been really impressed with the starlight paints and used them for a journal cover

What comfort zone …

Having been fortunate enough to be teaching a bonus lesson on Effy Wilds All Star Book of Days this year, I get to enjoy everyone else’s lessons too. Oh my goodness what a treat, I’ve promised myself to try different styles and Sarah Trumpp lived up to her name and absolutely came up trumps, it was an absolutely fabulous lesson that really gave me the confidence to try some asymmetrical features, so much fun. And the book binding lesson from Effy Wild is just brilliant, she has made the process so simple I’m a tiny bit obsessed with hand bound journal making, so much so I couldn’t resist making another one .

It’s going to be a fabulous year with BOD. https://www.facebook.com/526372994152420/posts/1861126637343709/
