Boy Oh Boy! A Completed Art Journal (& Video Flip)

Ohhhhhh boy! 6 days to Christmas and I am finding it insanely difficult to get online this month (no wonder challenges like Nanowrimo etc are in November - who would dare tackle anything extra in this crazy month?). I have managed to finish my horrid journal though, YAY!
I have done a two-part video flip of all the pages (gotta love flippages)
I only really talk about materials in these videos, because I always like to know what other artists like to use, but I have to say my favourite supply I found through process of this journal was a humble pencil. One water-soluable graphite pencil, ummmmm, here are a couple of pages in this journal I made with the pencil and not yet shown on here:
You know what? If all I got for Christmas was a lump of charcoal I'd reckon I'd be pretty chuffed haha

Just in case I don't get to blog again before the 25th MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!


  1. I love your Horrid journal! The pages and the name! haha
    Thank you for sharing the materials! It is very useful! I will try charcoals! ^^

  2. Yay, you finished! The journal looks great. :)

    I always like to know what other artists use in their work, too. There's always something fun I'd never have thought of.

  12. Such fabulous journals. I have been using the card from boxes for painting on and each time I have cut them I kept looking at the folded parts and thinking there must be something I could do with them. Now I know!!
