PaperArtsy challenge #10 doodling 

Here is my play for the PaperArtsy blog challenge #10 doodling.

When I was in college I had to retake my maths GCSE, and instead of doing my work I was naughty and doodled instead. I must have filled pages and pages with doodles! 

And when I saw what the new PaperArtsy topic was the doodles that I used to do popped into my head! So this page was basically me revisiting my time at college sitting in maths class when I would have preferred to be in my dance classes. 

The heart was done using derwent inktense pencils and then I sprayed water over the top to get them to bleed a little. The rest was just lots of doodling with a black unipin fine line and a sharpie paint pen. And I added some book text just to break it up a bit.

Mono printing 

Here’s my page for the PaperArtsy challenge #9 Mono Printing.

Gelli printing is one of my newest obsessions!!!

As you can see I did my gelli printing onto old book paper, I just love the added layer the typed print brings without me doing any work! 

This was 3 different prints all in similar colours ripped up and glued into my envelope journal. 

I had the large scribble circle already stamped out from a previous project and I wanted to use it on this page. 

So I added some more stamping of the large and small scribble circles from EEG15. The “art” stamp and small spikey circles from the same stamp plate. I also brought out my oil pastels to add some colour to the circles. 

White space

I’m a bit late to the party with this one! Here’s my play at the PaperArtsy challenge #8 White space. 

White space is something I struggle with and will try to push myself to do more projects with white space, especially with my art journalling. 

I recently bought PaperArtsy’s infusions at Ally Pally. I love them so much already!!! 

So I was just playing with those and the idea of white space. 

To finish I added some stamps from ESN11. 

Now I need to go and buy the rest of the infusions colours!!!! 

Play pages

Things have been busier than normal so I haven’t been crafting as much, and I missed out on a couple of the PaperArtsy challenges. 

But the small amounts of play I have managed to squeeze in have resulted in some interesting pages. 

I took inspiration from Kim Dellow in using leaflets/books that have been mailed to me as my journal. I’ve been using envelopes as my substrate for a while now but those have been plain with no writing or images on them. 

These pages have built up over a number of weeks often just adding one element or layer. And they are still very much works in progress. 


This is the front cover and as it stands I absolutely love this page! 


This is one of the “finished” pages (because it has a quote 😉 , but who knows I might add more to it at a later date. 


Another page that could be finished but I’m not sure yet!!!! I hand drew the flowers and subsequently made a hand carved stamp using some of them because I really liked the shape. 

You can really see the original print from the booklet in this page and I used one of the title words as the main message for this page. 


Another couple of pages that are one their way. I’m liking the pink page a lot! And I like that the last page is monochrome which wasn’t intentional. Originally it was very colourful. 

This is the hand carved stamp from the “be bold” page.
