Art Journal Jam

 In Art, Art Journal

The Craft Expo went by in a WHOOSH!
The Art Journal Jam was a colourful fiesta of fun.
My JAMbassadors all got a pair of twinkley kitty ears.

And our Jammers got to play with all the art supplies.

Here are some of my JAMbassadors and Jammers!

brisbane craft show 14Kerry, Monika and I decided we would go and see Maleificent, but the cinemas were completely full, so we went and had cheescake and fun with the Olloclip lense on my phone. Monika has been sharing her GORGEOUS Olloclip photos of nature on her Facebook page, and that inspired me to put mine in my bag the other day…unfortunately for K and M.
Please Note: neither Kerry nor Monika look like this! brisbane craftThese pics are from Kerry… and feature me acting ‘natural’.
I’m sorry,  but if there is a camera near-by, I have to pose ( ie: be an idiot), I can’t help it!  I love that pic of Angus behind the counter. brisbane craft coralWe also had a Mixed Media Art Gallery and it featured my most recent large-scale artwork. brisbane craft 2Here is Jo Klima and her Art Journal Jam results. She is my website designer – you can see her love of colour at work here!Brisbane craft show 14- 4 (1)And my favourite pic is Kerry and I with the pom-pom flowers and our twinkly  kitty ears. Kerry and I met at one of the Brissy craft shows a few years ago and have become friends. I loved having her help Angus and I at the show! She is friendly, knowledgeable and just an  awesome person to be around! brisbane craft show kerry

Thank you again to my wonderful JAMbassadors: Monika Dabrowska, Coral Lee, Maaret, Belinda Seymour, Di Spedicci, Catherine Land and Samm Stars.

My favourite part of the show is meeting internet friends and fans in real life. It’s a buzz! My vocal chords are pretty tired after all the talking I did over the last 3 days, but they’ll recover!

I hope to see you at the next Art Journal Jam, wherever it is!

      Thank you for being part of the fun beautiful Maaret!

    So funny – my Mum does not have any natural photos of me. Even as a toddler, I was always “striking a pose”. Think I needed to practice posing before I came to the jam – you look awesome in every photo… No fair!! Angus doing “The Thinker” is hilarious. Such a gentleman too :). So fun to catch up with arty girls I’ve met through you like the amazing Kerry and adorable Monika. I also got to meet new arty people, saw some amazing journals and got filled up to overflowing with inspiration and determination to practice lots more. So fun to come and play with you and to spread the word on how amazing the world of art journalling is. Thank you for letting me be a part of it. Kiss hug.

    I had a wonderful time being a Jambassador for Jane. Like Kerry, I just love being part of your arty bubble. Even though I wasn’t 100%, nothing was going to keep me away. It was lovely to catch up with all the girls as well. Such a happy and positive group. 🙂

    So much fun seeing all these great pics. Almost feels like I was there. NOT! But a girl can dream. Some day on one of these continents…

  • Kerry Sinigaglia

    I had a blast with you all Jane. I am busting to have more time to journal with you. It is an absolute pleasure to be a part of your artistic bubble. Let it continue to float across the world and spread joy. I love the pics of Monika and myself. HILARIOUS> Need a copy. And Angus is a gem . As are all of the lovelies who joined in on the weekend. Love you Jane.

    I had a fantastic time jamming with you, thank you for sharing your talent with the world and thank you to the jambasadors, what a lovely talented group of ladies you are.

  • Daniela Giles

    Thank you for posting these wonderful photos of you and everyone having such a great time at the Art Journal Jam Jane. It seems that whenever this show is on in Brisbane I am somewhere else!!! So I missed out “AGAIN”!!! I can see that there was some amazing work created. Maybe next year??? Sigh.
