"About me, coffee and choclate votary, night owl, walking chaos with flowers and glitter on top of it – yep it's me! Polish girl living in Germany with our small but loud family. I'm a scrapbooker and mixed media artist. Huge fan of messy works and dirty hands, enthusiast of steampunk and flowers, dimensional works and layers! I make classes and some video tutorials so if you want to know my techniques visit me on my blog or YT channel.


Art Journaling

By Olga Heldwein

In June we have been asked to introduce new things that we would like to explore with G45. For me it's an art journal. For a whole year, I had this amazing mixed media album. I was saving it for this amazing project and those super ideas of gorgeous pages I saw with the eyes of my imagination. I was so into this vision of a beautiful art journal, that I was too scared to start creating pages.  So with this challenge, I said "Enough," and just jumped in. I have to say that I really like this spread and it was fun to make it. If you are wondering about this project check out my video:

I was working straight on paper without primers. I was surprised by how good cardstock from the album behaved with water. As you can see in my video, we have different pages in this album. Some have cool pages. It is a really good base for art journaling.

All cut outs I had prepared before, as I like to watch movies and make cut outs or mold prints in the meantime." ~Olga Heldwein
