MargieHiguchi 600WM StarCanvasDecor

As we approach America's birthday in a few days, I wanted a little something to decorate my wall for the occasion. In my stash, I had a 4 x 6" burlap canvas that I totally messed up so why not re-purpose it to create this project.

Art Journaling Week 4

Art Journaling Banner 4


It's the last day of our Art Journaling Month!  We hope you've been inspired as much as we have by these amazing journals!



The rings (pictured above) are actually included in the Mixed Media Journal sets, but designer Lisa Adametz decided to glitz it up with a piece of ribbon.  We love how clean this looks!  



For a more rustic look, try using a piece of burlap ribbon.  This journal was created based on designer Jennifer Matott's trip to Italy, and it really does lend a polished distressed finish to the Italian theme.IMG_6090

For a more beachy look, try designer Tiffany Johnson's finish.  The clean minimal string is a perfect finish for the bright popping colors she selected.  

This concludes the end of our Art Journaling Month!  Thank you for stopping by to check out the different journals, and we'd like to give a BIG thank you to our fabulous design team.  You guys are absolutely the best!

Art Journaling Week 4 with Mou and our NEW Guest Design Team!


 Hi everyone, Mou here with the 4th and final week of Art Journaling month!

In the beginning, we picked an art journal and an inspiration piece. Week 2 was about creating foundations. Week 3, we started drawing, journaling, adding photos, etc. And in this 4th week, it comes all together... and here are all the pages from my art journal.  If you want to keep it simple, use the rings that are provided with the mixed media journal boards.  


I have colored, stamped, added texture, illustrated, and added natural objects in my art journal. You could add anything you like, such as, photos, ephemera, fabric... anything you can imagine :)

Congratulations to our new team- we look forward to working with you!
