Darlene McConnachie is the creative force behind Darlene's Creative Studio.
Darlene believes the act of journaling has therapeutic, stress reducing powers, and is passionate about helping others find the freedom to express themselves within the pages of a personal journal. She creates her own unique journals using recycled books, papers and fabrics. Her love of learning new things to add to her journals, has also led her down the path of creating one of a kind papers with dyes and natural elements.
Not only does she love to create journals, her passion for recycling and recreating has taken her on another path learning the ‘Art of Cartonnage’; making fabric covered boxes. She has become a certified instructor and teaches classes using the techniques of Cartonnage.
You can find her journals at Southampton Arts Centre in Southampton, ON, on her Etsy shop DarlenesCreativeJournals, and at local studio tours and Shoreline Artists events. You can also find a variety of tutorials and how-to videos on her YouTube channel, as well as many inspirational photos of her work on her Instagram and Facebook accounts
