Arty’s journal: Sleepover at Katie’s

Hi there, faves!

Today, after school, Arty asked me if we could make a video.

I asked him what he wanted to do in the video and he said that he wanted to do “one like yours, but with my journal”.

So, here’s his first ever process video: a spread in his traveler’s notebook, all about his sleepover at Katie’s house:



He used: traveler’s notebook from Felicity Jane || Jo Sonja’s artists’ colours in Napthol Red, Gold Oxide, and Cadmium Yellow Mid || Atelier artists’ acrylic in Brilliant Violet and Pacific Blue

See you soon! xxx

    great video, Arty!
    I loved watching you paint in your journal.
    Your voiceover work was excellent too.
    I hope you’ll share more of your work in the future!

    Great video Arty!

    Man Essie, he’s such a cool kid. And I think it’s so great that he has adult friends he feels comfortable with to have sleep overs with, and that really enjoy his company. 🙂
