Vicky, as I said to you in my Tweet, your color scheme is brilliant. Another art journal masterfully done. It's really a joy to watch your art journal brilliantly come to life. You think outside the box and that's what separates your art work from others. Thanks so much for sharing your work.

Great video and layout, I love the way that you mask off the camera stencil, I have seen that stencil, but couldn't figure out what to with it, now thanks to you, I think I will get it. Thanks for sharing,

Vicky - this is another wonderful art journal. You showed me another way to use my Gelatos. Love those colorful letters. The camera stencil is darling. I, too, would love to know where it came from. I have a set of FC big brush pens on order and can't wait to get them. It is such a joy to watch your videos. Many tnanks.


WOW Vicky your Art Journal pages turned out magnificent you sure came up with so many fantastic and awesome ideas for sure.
I am in love with the blackboard look anyway and boy oh boy what you came up with is dynamite to say the least. I just love your colors, journaling ideas just blew me away. You are truly a talented artist
