Journal Club

Hello my friends! Last Monday was the last Journal Club with The Fantastic Mrs Fox (see what I did there?).   Carol Fox has not only introduced me to journalling, but also has shown me so many different techniques to lay down colour, doodle and highlight, I shall be forever grateful! So as a little thank you I wanted to show you a few of the pages I completed at Carol's classes.....
Using our fingers to lay down the paint, building up the background with stencilled gesso and gelatoes. The girl was stamped separately and coloured with polychromos (3 attempts to get her right!) 

This is the same technique - I love this quote. 

Looking at this on on the PC,  my Cheshire cat's eyes and smile on the left page look like an orange monster!

Teeshamore Collage. Boy was this fun! We had pages and pages of images, quotes and words to choose from...the hardest part was whittling down to just a few. I decided not to go for a run of the mill quote, instead choosing to play silly sentences (getting ready to go back to work I suppose). 

These are just a few of the pages I completed based on Carol's designs.  Pop along to her blog and have a gander at her creations, she is one clever cat!
Once again I would like to thank you for popping in (and drinking all my coffee!) and I look forward to seeing you next time.


  1. What a lovely gesture. I agree, Carol has been an inspiration to us all and we will sorely miss the benefit of her knowledge and creativity. But you have done so well and produced such stunning work. Well done to you and Carol. X

  2. Carol certainly gave us an excellent introduction to Art Journalling, as evidenced by your work Debbie. She will be very much missed. We just have to go it alone now, with help from YouTube etc, and each other of course. Hope going back to work isn't too painful!��

    1. Thank you Pauline, still waiting for your blog xxx

  3. Wow these pages are amazing, I love your colours xx


  4. In both men and women, I think Hermes handbags and the Rolex Watches are used more interchangeably than watches for men and women.It is particularly common to see women wearing men's Luxury Breitling Watches. Me, for example, I wear Original Omega Watches Must 21 of my boyfriend with the black rubber strap.There are many legitimate 1:1 IWC online retailers that sell new certified watches.?At their lower prices, Cartier watches become watches at discounted prices and that's a good thing! Rolex Submariner Watche have splendid styles and designs giving the product a unique style.
