Claire Stead


Welcome friends!  


Here's a little bit about me!

I live in the UK, in Derbyshire, in the beautiful Peak District with my husband( my I.T manager!!) and family. I am a Mum of three teenagers and our gorgeous dog!

I discovered Mixed media Art Journaling years ago and have been totally swept up by it! I genuinely believe that art journaling is great for mental well being as it gives a great outlet for what's on your mind. Just spending 10 minutes a day being creative is very grounding. 

I love bright colours- especially rainbows, they do feature a lot in my work! I also enjoy working with neutral colours too! In fact any colour goes!!!! 

I also enjoy crochet- a lot of which is rainbow themed( we have many blankets!!! ) and I love sewing and gardening too!

I am super excited to be designing my own range of very popular art journaling supplies with Funky Fossil UK and release new products several times a year.

These are available from my website too.

I am also excited to be teaching through Natalie May Scrapbooking's website- the classes are taught online and are recorded live through a private Facebook group. 

I am also running a range of in person classes, starting in Chesterfield, UK. Please see this page for details.

I hope you enjoy exploring the website, look out for  YouTube and Instagram , as well as the on line shop and online courses.

I also have a subscription area on this website called Art Journal Lovers and for £3.99 a month you get access to lots of content - including monthly downloads, extra video content, weekly live journaling sessions and sneak peeks at new releases🤭. 

Please sign up for free membership of the website to be kept up to date with new updates, and there's a free digital download for every member when you sign up. These are on the Members Freebies page There are some free classes open to all members too. 

If you have any ideas or suggestions, or just want to say hello click here.

Happy arting
