MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN YOU WANT TO MAKE AN ART JOURNAL PAGE

Inside: 7 most common mistakes to avoid in your art journal to make amazing pages   You probably think I never make mistakes in my art journal but you're wrong. I make mistakes all the time! When I start working on an art journal page I usually have an idea in my head but it doesn't always come out the way I want it to. However I try not to panic and I usually manage to fix that mistake and end up with an art journal page I like.       ART JOURNAL MISTAKES Some artists will tell you there is no such thing as mistakes in an art journal and there is some truth in that.

If that's the case then no mistakes could happen because whatever is right for you is never a …

HOW TO EASILY BREAK CRAFT ROOM MYTHS TO FIND YOUR JOY

Inside: 11 craft room myths you might still believe and can easily be broken to get your creative mojo back!   I've been crafting for a long time but I recently realized that I and all of us crafters are prisoners of some craft myths that are simply not true. These myths not only get in the way of us crafting they also influence the way we shop for craft supplies and organize them. I think it's about time we break these myths and go back to doing things the right way!   LET'S BREAK THOSE CRAFT ROOM MYTHS ONE BY ONE   WE DON'T CRAFT MORE BECAUSE OUR CRAFT ROOM IS NOT PERFECT You probably heard the phrase: organizing craft supplies and crafting are two different hobbies. That's actually true and you likely don't have time for both. It's easy to think: "if I only had..." More space Better storage New furniture A different space And so on... However …

MAKE AWESOME PAGES FOR YOUR SPECIAL SUMMER MEMORIES

Inside: Fun and easy ideas to create summer pages for all your memories from this summer vacation, outdoor trips, days at the beach etc.   Personally I'm not a big fan of summer, which is a little strange when you consider the fact I live in a country that is usually hot. I don't like the heat and the humidity BUT I do love our summer family time and vacations! I'm so lucky that my kids (now 20 and 17 years old) have always enjoyed going on summer activities together and still do! I know it's not a given so even if I don't do any other pages through out the year I always do those special pages with our summer memories.     WET SUMMER PAGES   Who doesn't love going to the beach or the swimming pool to cool off in the inviting blue water?  The water is always a great background for taking beautiful photos with a …

HOW TO MAKE A MASTERPIECE OUT OF A MILK CARTON

Inside: how to alter a milk carton into a masterpiece instead of throwing it away   I don't know how the four of us can generate so much trash. I try to minimize our amount of trash but somehow it keeps mounting. So I wanted to come up with ways to recycle or up-cycle some of the things we usually throw away and I came up with a few ways to make a masterpiece out of a milk or juice carton.       ALTER A MILK CARTON Instead of throwing away your milk or juice cartons you can use it as a base for an altered craft project. A carton like this is good for recycling or altering because: It has thick walls that can "carry" mediums, paint and paper without wrinkling or degrading. The carton has the perfect square shape and even sides to add embellishments,photos or other 3D items. Its shape resembles a shape of a house …
