ATC with SherrieJD's stuff!

I had such fun when I was creating this ATC! I mixed lots of kits from SherrieJD (collabs with Tangie Baxter) to get this crazy result! I used Enchanted Art Box, Cirque Joyeux, Ultimate Art Doll and Curious Quotes, all available at Scrapartist.

My layout for week 5!

Well, as I already said in another post, January was very busy for me. So Simplify is a great word for this week! I made an empty agenda to leave life's circus behind!
I used a lot of stuff from SherrieJD and Tangie Baxter, available at Scrapartist.

More new stuff!

I got more amazing stuff to work with!

All this stuff is from SherrieJD (some with Tangie Baxter) and available at Scrapartist!

And have you seen the new Zine? It's a fun magazine about Altered Art with lots of examples and tips:
It's also for sale at Scrapartist.

Itinerary #5 and Parcel #5

Wow, it's already week 5 of the Art Journal Caravan! So we have a ne itinerary. I chose to work with the verb of the week again. This time the word is Simplify.
Lately I have it really busy (January is the most bussiest month at my work) so I think this word is very good for me, because it's all been not simply at all!

Also there is a new parcel with great stuff in it, created by Tangie Baxter and Amanda Sexton:

New stuff! Yeah!

Just ordered some new amazing stuff:

Ruby Rynne - NatIV (

SherrieJD - Altered States Alpha with Numbers (Scrapartist)

SherrieJD and Tangie Baxter - Cirque Joyeux (Scrapartist and Scrapbookgraphics)

I'm really happy with all these new stuff to work with! I'm totally into the art layouts since the Art Journal Caravan. It's just so much fun to try something different and without a photo on my layouts. A real challenge, but a fun challenge!

Bought a collab kit from Tangie and SherrieJD yesterday!

I just want a lot of artsy stuff to play with and in this kit there are a lot of things I really like! So I just had to buy it! Now find some time to play with it too, because I'm busy with converting my RAW photos to JPEG for some hours now. But I'm almost finished and my 2009 photos will be ready and backupped!

Tangie Baxter and Amanda Sexton - AJC Parcel 4
Tangie Baxter - Play Wordart Freebie
Tangie Baxter - Journal Anthology
Tangie Baxter - Scratchy Paint Alpha
Tangie Baxter - Cirque Joyeux Freebie

Itinerary #4 and Parcel #4

A new week so a new itinerary and parcel for the Art Journal Caravan! This weeks itinerary is so much fun! This week we have to play with color!
I couldn't resist buying Parcel #4 too, because this kit works perfect with the itinerary.

And Tangie also made a litte freebie:

Book material

Yesterday I bought a package to make a little book (size 13x13cm). Everything is in the package, except glue. I wanted to make it ready today, but we had no glue that is strong enough to hold the back vinyl against the cardboard. It just can't be done with photo glue. So I first have to buy that.

I really love the papers from Graphic45. They are from the series Translantique and Communique.
I'm not really a paper scrapper anymore, but otherwise I would by a lot of Graphic45!
I had a hard time in choosing, because at the shop they had a lot of choice! But finally I chose the one with the train on it because of the journey-idea for the front cover. And the other two for the back cover and some decorations.

Itinerary #3 and Parcel #3

Just arrived home and ordered the new Parcel #3 for the Art Journal Caravan right away!

This is the kit for this week:

I'm busy with a layout with this kit, but Itineary #3 sounds a bit difficult. So I have to read it again to see what I can do with it for this week. Because it's the first day, there are no examples in the gallery yet.

I also have a new Artist Sheet from Tangie Baxter:

My layouts for week 2

I made two layouts for this week. We had to look to a certain style and create our own page in that style. I tried and this came out:

I used Drifting Snow Dreams by Lorie Davison and some stuff from Tangie Baxter and Ruby Rynne. The stitching is from Berna Datema.

But then I just couldn't stop and changed it a bit into my own style:

With a lot in the same way, the text, the stitching and some of the elements, but more colorful. For this second page I used stuff from Tangie Baxter and Ruby Rynne.

This is the example from Geninne's Art Blog:

Itinerary #2 and Parcel #2

Yesterday we got the secnd Itinerary, but I still have to read what we have to do. There was a link to a blog with some amazing artistic pages. We have to do something in that style.

And there is another great kit for this week, Parcel #2:

I still don't have a lot artistic kits, so I also bought this kit this morning.

Went shopping at Scrapbookgraphics!

Tangie Baxter created an amazing kit that I can use with the Art Journal Caravan, called Journal Anthology.

As you can see, it's very colorful and there are some really unique elements in this kit. So I couldn't resist to press the Add to Cart Button!

A second layout for the first week.

I just had to do a second page with my word Explore. Totally different, but here I made it a bit more personal with the journaling and the idea of something coming out of my head was in my head since the start of the AJC. Just didn't know how to do it, but I think it looks great.

Used kits:
Native Too by Ruby Rynne
Alternative by Ruby Rynne
Mo Native by Ruby Rynne

Itinerary #1 and Parcel #1

It started! The Art Journal Caravan!

We just got our first itinerary and I bought Parcel #1 for this week!
The first itinerary is to create a layout with one word. Now just have to figure out what word I will use and if I use it in English or in Dutch. But I have the whole week for it!

More ATC-cards!

What a fun thing, creating these little cards in Photoshop! Just throw crazy items on one layout and see what you get: Totally Crazy Amazing Funny Cards!
