Love actually BY ALISON CALLCOTT, VIC Materials: Paper – Crate Paper; Cardstock – Greyboard; Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, Autumn Leaves and Kaisercraft; Embellishments – Scrap FX and Molossi chipboard, D-lish Scraps flowers, washi tape, doilies, flair, wire and key, Faber-Castell Gelatos, Stampin’ Up! Write marker, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles, gesso spray. Feathers are in! And we’re not just talking about actual feathers – although scrappers have been known to add the stray one on occasion – but embellishments and images too. No matter the colour, size, pattern or material, a feather can instantly add a sense of lightness and calm to a layout. There are plenty of brands adding feathers to their repertoires, so it’s easy to find one to suit your next project! KASZAZZ Atlas embellishment pack – four of seven metal charms shown…

telling the story

For my article this month I want to delve into one of those aspects of scrapbooking that some of us seem to avoid – journalling. As the quote above says, without the words, the pictures are meaningless, and I can vouch for that firsthand! My Nan left one extremely old, leather-bound family photo album to my mum many years ago and she has promised that one day it will be passed on to me. Unfortunately, one of the sad things with this treasured family heirloom is that we have hundreds of photos of our ancestors, but we don’t know who they are as nothing has been recorded in the album or on the photos themselves, which is really, really sad and very disheartening. This is one of the reasons why journalling…

art journalling

Creating an art journal or personal art diary helps you develop your knowledge, finetune your skills and conceptualise ideas within a portable journal. It’s a journal you can take anywhere to jot, doodle, paint and create anything your creative spirit desires in. Each art journal is completely unique to the owner – it would be impossible to find two the same – and serves as a wonderful reminder of creative flow through the years. Art journals are perpetually a work in progress. Why do we art journal? We create art journals to allow our ideas to flow, to experiment with the amazing amount of product we possess, to find new ways of creating with direct intent, or because we want to create with total abandon and freedom. Art journals let us express…

journalling with silhouette

I have never liked my handwriting and this is evident in my pages. I usually hide my journalling to cover the ‘scrawl’ as I call it, but recently I discovered the fabulous Silhouette pen holder, which has added another dimension to using my Silhouette machine! The pen holder can be used in any Silhouette electronic cutting tool and holds most ballpoint pens. It allows you to replace the machine’s blade with a pen to sketch instead of cut!
