PPF, In the Studio & Giveaway Winner

This week has been a marathon of making things for me, even so I still feel I need more hands! I've not managed to paint anything today but I must have made about 12-15 journals this week to stock up my etsy shop, so wanted to join in the fun and share these two for Paint Party FridayIn the Studio Sneak Peek and for the first time Artists in Blogland, as they are very 'painterly' is style and I really like how they've turned out:
Clementine Front
 Clementine Back


Okay so onto the giveaway winner of this here art journal:
Thank you to everyone that entered, here are all your names and I thought it would be fun to put them into this cute trunk case thing so I could give them a good shake up:

Shake, shake, shake

And the winner is:

Congratulations Grandma Yellow Hair! I'll be in touch to organise postage, I hope you find a use for your new recycled journal.

As a final note I want your opinion if I may - I have so enjoyed making this journal and doing this giveaway that I'm already thinking of another. I'm currently working on some (along with a hundred others) journals that are particularly for creative writing, prompted journals for recreation and more exactly character development. What does everyone think - is anyone out there interested in creative writing?  The reason I'm thinking of this is I had such positive feedback in regards to the video tutorial I gave for the art journal that I want to do the same for the creative writing.  The journal itself I will probably be a nice leather binding or something but the actual creative writing exercise & character development principles I can share, please let me know your thoughts on if you are interested in this (or not, whatever the case may be). 

There is another reason why I'm wanting to do this giveaway - I have been either rather stupid or very brave - it's the same reason I'm trying to stock up my etsy shop as I doubt I'll have much time soon...but I'll leave that to another post.

Thanks for stopping by :) off to bloghop around PPF, Sneak Peek Studio & Artists in Blogland now, hugs Jenny

  5. Honestly, I think that's a great idea! As a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, I know that I and other writers are always looking for new inspiration and motivation. For example, I love collecting quotes from other writers on the writing process. They get me going whenever I'm in a slump.

    Also, your journals are just lovely. I'm so excited you'll be selling them on Etsy!

  6. Whaaaaaaa....I mean...congratulations Grandma Yellow Hair. :)
