Happy Saturday Craft Book Review & Giveaway
Art Journal Swapping!

A New Art Journal Page {with video!}

When I sent out a survey to my email subscribers recently they overwhelmingly said that they wanted more videos...so your wish is granted.  I'm going to try to film as I work and share those with you along with other technique videos.  Please give me feedback!  Do you want the whooooooole thing like I did with the video below? Or do you prefer it to be shorter in length, with minor parts that are chopped out?  I'm thinking of not talking so much too...maybe no talking, but add in visual notes? Is there any other kind suggestions and preferences you have?  -Speak, I'm listening.  :)

Ok, here's the finished page...

Art Journal 3I came across that quote online and just had to use it!  I also used the new Detailz Doilies dies with nice, thick Letterpress paper for each of the flower centers because the cool thing with these dies is that when you run it through your die-cut machine they get cut out and embossed at the same time. Love that! It works really good with the Letterpress paper, but you can use cardstock or patterned paper too, you just need to change up the "sandwich" your layer up before running it through the machine, here's how.

Art Journal 2
The markers I used are Faber-Castell PITT® Artist Pen and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens. They are great to use directly onto the page or you can use them as a watercolor...both of which you'll see in the video.  And I also used some Dylusions and Adirondack spray inks.

Speaking of videos...here it is...don't forget to give me some feedback!  Thanks!
