After getting to know Tangie through recording The Digi Show and spending a bit of time with her “in real life,” I have to say she is so inspiring! Tangie has a way of always helping me see things from a different perspective. It truly is a gift! Tangie recently ran a KickStarter campaign that was funded to help her launch a physical studio in Mesa Arizona. She contributed a whole entire Workshop to The Digi Files this month, which will retail for almost $20 when it moves to her studio for sell after this month! Let’s take a closer look at “Quickity Split Art Journaling Workshop” that is included in The Digi Files this month:
This is ONE of SEVEN collections you get when you become a member of The Digi Game this month. You also get an interactive Playbook (in PDF and iBooks formats) that has lots of ideas for using the supplies including techniques, tips, and tricks! All of that, including access to exclusive collaborations every four months you are a member, for only $7.50 total per month! Here are some layouts created using Studio Tangie’s contribution:

I live in Mesa, Arizona with my talented hubby who makes all the journals in our Etsy shop, my fifteen year old daughter whom I adore and a cranky Italian Greyhound named Tank. I am newly addicted to Instagram and Pinterest and can sometimes be found on Facebook. I love collecting treasures on Etsy and thrift stores such as metal globes, vintage chevron crochet blankets, red planting pots, embroidered kitchen towels and of course anything that can be glued down in my art journal!
Words cannot express how much I love working in my journal! I don’t often share pages from my mixed-media journal scanned in like this, usually it’s just an Instagram picture or two. I had these scanned in for my Kickstarter project rewards and thought I would share a couple of them with you. Although these particular images are mixed-media, I also do love to art journal digitally as well, I then print them off immediately and incorporate them right into my current journal.
SUPPLIES: mixed-media: paints, watercolor crayons, india ink, ephemera, spray inks, stencils, china markers
I have been paper scrapping since I was about twelve or so! Then I got to that stage of my life that I sort of lost interest in and became a collector of scrapbooking supplies *cough cough* but never did anything with them. Then I came across art journaling in 2003 and fell in love but didn’t make it a priority in my life until much later. In the spring of 2007 I found out about DIGITAL scrapbooking, I nearly fell out of my chair! I can STILL picture me sitting there with a silly grin on my face not believing what I was seeing! It was love at first pixel and I knew it was for me. I immediately bought Photoshop CS2 and cried myself through learning how to use it. I can laugh about it now, but there weren’t many resources on how to use the program for digital scrapbooking back then. By the fall of 2007, I opened my own store and by fall of 2008 I moved to Scrapbookgraphics.com. Somewhere in the fall of 2009 I realized I could combine my love of art journaling with digital and my life has never been the same since then! The last six years have been some of the most amazing of my life and I’m so grateful each and everyday that I was led down this path in my life.
In the last few years it’s been my desire to share art journaling with the world! As the term “freestyle” gets more and more popular it’s been easier (people are more open to it), but there is a subtle yet important difference between actual art journaling and freestyle scrapbooking. My inspiration and drive keeps pushing me towards sharing what art journaling is and how it can help each of us no matter our style!
This is the longest I’ve ever had a computer, and it’s still going strong. It’s an HP 570f, it has a AMD II 1090T 3.20GHZ processor; 16 GB of Ram and a 2TB hard drive with windows 7-64 bit. I also have two HP2711x LED 27 inch Monitors which I adore!
I use Photoshop CS5, Filterforge, Artrage, 7zip and Renamer by Den4b
An iPHone 5! Seriously, I have given up on trying to be a photographer and just enjoy my life through the lens of the camera phone that goes with me everywhere. I admire great photographers from a distance and am just happy for them that they have the talent!
My favorite other supplies that I use in my art, that end up in most of my digital kits are: Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Artists’ Crayons, Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 Pencils, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Liquitex Basics Acrylic Colors, Dylusions Spray Inks, Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, Sharpie Peel-Off China Markers and of course ephemera!
If you love to play with color palettes you have to try Sherwin Williams new “Let’s Chip It“! I have so much fun with it as it seems to give better color palettes than some of the other sites out there.
I think this is my favorite product because it’s it something I have wanted to do for so long, it was also the first live workshop I taught at a national art conference broken up into three nights which was a HUGE bucket list item for me. There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of hours poured into it! While I make no claims to know all there is in Photoshop, I do think that everyone can learn something new from it, as it’s geared specifically to art journaling! I have gotten lots of positive feedback on it and I guarantee that if the student doesn’t find it useful they can get something else in my shop instead! It really is something I’m truly proud to have accomplished.
The Art Journal Caravan is in it’s fourth year and still going strong. We have a wonderful community of art journalers who regularly participate in our classroom and share their work in our gallery. We’ve all come to understand that it’s not about doing “a page a week” but it’s about the process of art journaling itself that really matters. I put my heart and soul into the workshop and try to over deliver on what is promised. I hope people can feel that, and know that I am passionate about art journaling, it truly does change lives!
