Hello lovely people
Well I have to say I've had rather a good week for receiving goodies. I've had an abundance of new papers to make journals with, including a huge amount of ephemera I have discovered, which includes everything from a beautiful illustrated 1877 edition of Don Quixote for 50p to Queens Alexandra's 1908 Photo Book and Players Cigarette Cards book full of the original Hollywood Stars. But what I have loved receiving the most is this beautiful bag I have received from Jan over at Lunch Lady Jan's Fabric Frenzy:
It was her first ever giveaway, and my first ever entry into one and I'm so thrilled with it I can't tell you, it's new employment is my studio bag as it is such a fantastic size it allows me to carry whole projects between my two studios. So thank you Jan, as I'm a firm believer in karma your generosity has inspired me to do a giveaway of my own, so here it is:
It is an art journal I have created from 100% recycled materials, as you may have seen with my last blog post I am getting more and more conscious of consumer waste and making everything as eco-friendly as humanly possible so this journal was created from cereal boxes.
I am going to pick a winner on 30th September when I will automatically enter all of my followers (as I'm so very grateful to have you considering I'm still a newborn blogger) and anyone that has left a comment on this post. So if you are a follower and a commenter you will be entered twice.
However as I enjoy making videos I decided to do a tutorial on how I made this journal for anyone who likes the look of giving it a go themselves, seeing as there can be only one actual winner of the piece itself. Here it is, hope you enjoy and good luck if you enter:
