Kate Crane Workshop at The Artistic Stamper

Published October 31, 2014 by isisimaginings

Today I fulfilled an ambition I’ve had ever since I discovered art journaling – I wanted to attend a Kate Crane workshop. Seven/eight months ago when we heard she would be at The Artistic Stamper in Kent, my friend Georgina & I rushed to book a place & then waited impatiently. Today was the day & these are are my journal pages……………….



They’re not quite finished, I have to add the journaling,  but I’m really pleased with them.

I used  all sorts of colouring media, including PaperArtsy Fresco paints, Claudine Hellmuth & Amsterdam acrylics & oil pastels. The stencilling on the page above is t, designed by Georgina.




It was a thrill to meet Kate at last, she is just as lovely as I thought she would be. Thank you so much to her for sharing her vast knowledge & for all the inspiration. Thanks too to Jennie & Mal for their hospitality & for keeping us fed & watered throughout the day.

  • Glad you got to fulfil one of your dreams Kirsten. Have taken a class myself with Kate so know exactly where you are coming from, she is fantastic, a lovely person and a great teacher xxx

  • Felt the same about taking a course with Dyan Reaveley, it is a wonderful feeling when you and have a fantastic time. Kate is on my wish list of people i wish to learn from, so happy that you had an amazing day!

    Your pages are beautiful, both so different, love them both:-) xxx

  • Your journal pages are wonderful Kirsten! It really sounds as though the class was everything you hoped for. I did get to meet Kate at one of the Harrogate Papercraft shows and watched her demo some of her journaling techniques which I enjoyed immensely even though I’m not into journalling myself.
