Sizzix Friday: Freestyle Journaling and more...!

Hi again, it's Friday, which means I have some new inspirations for you on Sizzix.uk blog! 
This time I'm into journals again - and my favorite Luminarte Silks acrylic paints of course, which means lots of great metallic color! First, here are 2 journal covers, based on wonderful Prima mixed-media books. I love them - they are versatile, durable, beautiful... the imagination is the limit!

If you like the covers like that you may be interested in attending one of my mixed-media classes next year - "Prima Grungebook" or "Prima goes Inky" :) Fun and inspiration included!

And below are Sizzix projects -and also part of another journal class, based on paint, splatters and crazy color and texture ideas - "Freestyle journal". Can you see Sizzix die-cuts used to create the background? I love, love this effect!

To see more details and learn more about the dies I used visit Sizzix.uk blog today! I hope to see you there!

And here is a little sneak-peek of the super important, exciting and so far - secret project I'm working on... I hope soon I can reveal more information, it's so hard to keep my mouth shut!!!


And how is your journaling? Do you do it on regular basis, or from time to time? Or maybe you didn't try yet? If not... why not start now? Journals are artists' best friends!

"I love the process more than final effect". That's an interesting point of view... Your work is very beautiful, I guess you have a lot of fun when you're creating. And there are so much details on your creations, that's amazing.
Keep on working !
