Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. I hope that Spring makes you happy. As I already mentioned I’m really addicted to art journaling and in my last post I started to work with a great mixed media journal from Faber-Castell. With the second attempt I came to the grips with the rest of eight mentioned techniques: layering, misting, stamping and doodling.

Art Journal Page with Jen Matott

 

JustBepage1

Hi creative friends!  I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released.  One of them is full of my artwork!  In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit! 

It is the second one that I've designed for  them and I'm thrilled with how it looks!  WOW!  I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit.  In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included.  So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!
