Art journal video with Vicky

Art journal flip flops

Hi everyone! It's Vicky here and today I am sharing a fun art journal layout. In the video below I will show you a technique on how you can create awesome mixed media results by just using your patterned papers, the Faber-Castell gel medium and your PITT Stamper's Big Brush pens. 


If you had to keep it limited in terms of supplies then your must have tools should be your gel medium jar and your big brush markers! I'll show you today how versatile they are, you can apply color with them to your layout, stamp with them and even add shading or highlights.


To create my summer scene I used papers, glued them down with my gel medium and then used my artist pens to do the shading. To add more details I just glued down some flat wooden embellishments here and there.


You can watch the video below



  • Faber-Castell gel medium
  • Faber-Castell gesso
  • Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush

(for a list of the rest of the supplies including embellishments and stamp sets please see description below the video on YouTube)

Thank you all for joining us today!

Wow! I am so inspired by this. I have watched all your art journals but I have always been scared to try it. But this particular one makes me less scared to actually do it.
