Even though I really didn’t want to let my Summer journal go I know it’s time and I have to be realistic and welcome the season in.

Decorating my Autumn planner was just the start I was looking for to get me in the mood.

My Autumn planner cover is a piece of grey felt which gives me an instant warm and cozy feel. The journal inside is a simple Moleskine but covered with perfect Canvas Corp papers

I know it’s only Wednesday but I had to get this in before it was too late. I saw and bought these letters ages ago but wasn’t quite sure how I’d decorate them. I have some of the Haunt It papers by Canvas Corp¬† and these were absolutely perfect for adding that quirky touch.

One of the nice things about crafting with a friend is being able to give each other ideas and challenges sometimes way out of your comfort zone. This week during a conversation with Clare she challenged us both to create a black and white background. As a lover of colour, colour and more colour this was already sounding scary but once I’d covered my page with black gesso (way too scary for words) then white, I thought, hey I can do this.

“Messy Fun Friday” is the phrase adopted by my good friend Clare Brown after we spent the morning creating a journal page together via What’s App. We had such a good time creating together and getting messy it was almost as good as having her with me in the studio. Almost. We had such a laugh it made me think about perhaps making a video of my process in future.

For now though I’ll re-wind a bit to a couple of days ago when I sketched out this page in my journal.
