Regular Art Journaling with Kate Crane - February

Kate Crane has been doing a regular journaling class for a few months now at AFTH and I'm glad to say that I have become one of the 'regulars'!
Kate has been trying to push us out of our comfort zone by making us do things like draw faces or animals - use paint in different ways - collage with digital downloads as well as with our own photographs or backgrounds.  We have produced some amazing work and learnt so much and I'm looking forward to learning and creating much more in the future.
For now however I wanted to show you what I made in class this month!!

As it happens the workshop fell on Valentines day - so of course we had to do something with heart!!! Here's the two pages I produced!

This first page was done in my large Dylusions Journal!
Using a brayer and acrylic paints we created a multi layered background then as the focal point, stitched on 3 triple layered hearts which we had cut out of on a separate sheet.
When I got home I did add a bit of stickles on the hearts for a bit of bling!!

This second one was done in my small Dylusions Journal! The background created much in the same way as the other first one but with only 1 triple layered heart!
 With the addition of a Stampotique figure (Hiya Cinth by Janet Klein) and a quote the page was very quickly finished!!!
Lovely fast technique for creating vibrant backgrounds - I love it!

If you would like to go to any of Kate's workshops please check out her website HERE.
Happy crafting folk!!!
