I absolutely loved creating these gorgeous little Haute Mess Mini Art Journals for Clique Kits! I poured my heart and soul into their creation and I truly hope that you have as much fun creating in yours as I did!
There is something so satisfying about the instant gratification you get when sitting down to create on a small page…I just love it! For the pages that I created I used Clique Kits amazing kit…how amazing is this kit girlies??!!!!! OMG…I am just going to say it…this is the BEST kit I have ever worked with…so much goodies and talk about pretty!!!??? Yassssss!
I used the pretty little pink envelopes to create pockets on my pages and I used the chipboard sticker pieces for tabs.
I also loved. Loved. Loved. the sheer envelopes in the kit. I took advantage of the sheerness and adhered patterned paper. This served two purposes…it added to the depth and made them even more pretty…and it helped to stabilize them, making them stronger and thicker to easier slide a note inside.
It’s hard to see in the photos, but I added a glaze of the sheer white shimmer paint to all pages to give them so sparkle!
And I added all those too.die.for. trims on the bottom of my pages to make all my pages extra special! I cannot wait to see what all of you create in your mini’s!
Aloha everybody! I could not be any more excited to share a collaboration that has been in the works for literally months. Last fall Wendy La Croix of Bad Girls Couture and I introduced The Clique to a basic art journal kit and we had a blast bringing talent together to do a holiday blog hop to inspire our followers with art journal pages, junk journal style scrapbooking, and more ideas using Haute Mess media and paint on all kinds of projects for the holidays. This time, we have been working together to bring you an unbelievably special and one of a kind MINI art journal handmade from a dainty shabby chic vintage fabric. Wendy designed our exclusive mini art journal with the same high quality features she puts into all of her regular size journals, but scaled it down to a size that fits in your purse and is perfect for completing a chunky little book. We are so lucky to have Wendy La Croix, the owner of Bad Girls Couture, as our next Guest Educator/Designer! You can find Wendy on Facebook or on Instagram also!
Of course Clique International curated a perfectly coordinated mixed media kit to go with this journal, and together we present the Bliss Kit...an extremely generous loaded Mini art journal and mixed media and scrapbooking kit exclusively found in the Clique International shop while supplies last. There is a very limited number of these and we don't want anyone to miss out so please, please, please head over and order yours. When they are gone, they are gone!
We will share a complete listing of everything in the kit, but first we have to introduce you to Wendy, a phenomenal artist, interior designer, mother, and friend:
Hi everyone! My name is Wendy and I am a native Southern Californian. I’m pretty sure I was born to be an Artist. Whether I am designing residential interiors or playing with my mixed media art supplies, I have always been involved in the arts. From the time I could speak I have been creating something artistic whether it be with paint, papers, fabrics, beads, etc.
I can’t think of anything I would rather do, but when I am not creating or designing, I absolutely love spending time with my family. I have three beautiful children and a gorgeous newborn granddaughter. I also love to spend time in my garden and I love digging into a really good book.
I also spend a lot of time creating art journals and paint for my company Bad Girls Couture.
My dream has always been to provide goodness and inspiration in this world. We are all in this together…let’s make the best of it and have fun creating!
Stay tuned for inspiration from Guest Educator Wendy on the blog and in the Clique Facebook Group using the amazing Bliss Mini Art Journal Kit. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!
