Art Journaling in Adelaide

Thinking of getting into Art Journaling?

My Art Journaling classes here in Adelaide at Seriously Scrapbooking are so much fun ...
we have been having an absolute ball and creating so many amazing pages.

I'm doing two different classes each month ...
Art Journaling on a Saturday & Art Journal Freestyle on a Thursday night.
Here are the dates of the upcoming classes.

Art Journal Freestyle ...Thursday October 20th 6pm - 9pm
Art Journal ...Saturday October 22nd 10am - 12.30pm

Art Journal ...Saturday November 5th 10am - 12.30pm
Art Journal Freestyle ...Thursday November 17th 6pm - 9pm

Art Journal ...Saturday December 12th 10am - 12.30pm
Art Journal Freestyle ...Thursday December 22nd 6pm - 9pm

The Saturday class is a set class ... last month we investigated Collaging and working with Serviettes. October 22nd we will be working with a Gel Press or Gelli Plate and creating our own papers. This class will require you to bring the following to assist you in creating your page ... Gel Plate (only if you have one), Brayer, paint, gel medium, stencils and baby wipes.   There will be plates available to purchase at the class too. Please note that this class will not be repeated this year. 
The class will be $16 plus a kit of $15.

The Art Journal Freestyle class is about learning to create in layers ... creating in a sequence that creates a great page ... for this class, you need to bring a few stamps, stencils, a couple of paints and some ephemera - this could be anything from book pages to pattern paper, left over die cut & stickers or magazine clippings. 
Here is a sample of a few I have done ...
I hope to create a video on my You Tube soon showing the rest of the pages I have created

Please ALWAYS ring and make sure you have been booked in and that you check
Facebook on my page and the shops page to see what you need to bring for the class.

Here are the links ...

Each class will require you to bring a few essential items ...
here is a list of things we use from time to time!
(I recommend the Dylusions large journal)

If you are in Adelaide and want to join in, I'd love to create with you ... Call 8277 1298 to book in.

Hope to create with you soon

You Smile with your Heart ... and Lindys ...

Hello again,
Today I am sharing another page I created
using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays from the September Color Challenge set.
I am still loving this color combination! Super easy to use!
I used a couple of colors from the set for my page plus one from my stash:
To create this page, I used Marshmallow cardstock as my base
and then used Gel Medium through a stencil over the plain card.
Once it is dry, it creates a cool resist so that when you add color,
the pattern stays white! Cool stuff!
Before I started with the sprays, I did a little test to make sure the colors all
worked in well together and then started spraying!  Starting at the top of the page,
add the first color, then the second one quickly and use a water spray to dilute
it a little and help it drip down the page. Tilt the paper as you need and dry in
between layers to get an awesome depth of color.  I just kept on layering my
colors until I was happy with the coverage and the final color.  So easy!

Here are a few detail shots of the page!
I have filmed a video to show you how easy it is to create this page. 
You can watch it below or on the Lindys Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.


  • Add water quickly after your spray – before it soaks in so that
    you can spread it around a little
  • Test your colors before you start to make sure the spray is working great and to make sure the colors are exactly what you are after!

My Boys ...

Hi there,  
Natalie here sharing a page I created using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays
from the September Color Challenge set. 
This is such a great combination and perfect for a Grungy Masculine Page
featuring my husband and my best friend!

I decided to use three colors from the set for my page:Greased Lightnin Green
Danny Zukos Denim
Sandra Dee Sepia

Here are a few simple steps to create this page…
I started with a line using a Black Stabilo pencil then added some Molding Paste with a stencil. Once dry, I started layering my colors, watering down a little as I went and spreading them with a brush.
As it dried, I could see the different layers of color in the paper
I then added some splatters in all three colors
Once dry, I added stamping to create more layers and dimension
I added some mesh tape & old rub ons along my horizon line
Coloured the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard with a combinations of Green & Blue, added some wood veneers and string and added a tag under my photo
And finished the page off with a few Imaginarium chevrons
Here are a few detail images of my page.
I have filmed a video to show you how easy it is to create this page…
You can view it on the Lindys Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.


*Add water quickly after your spray – before it soaks in so that you can spread it around a little*Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays soak right into Imaginarium Chipboard because it’s porous, so dry it between coats to ensure you get the color that you are after.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
