Art Journaling Video: Do What You Love!


Hi readers! Happy Saturday to you!  I’m so happy to have special guest designer Vicky Papaioannou on our blog today with some gorgeous art journaling inspiration! The sentiment is so great too! I love it!

Please see below and be sure to watch the video to get the whole process.  It is worth the watch for sure, Vicky gives lots of tips and tricks! Be sure to check it out!  Do you have an art journal?  Perhaps it’s time to start one!



Hi everyone, it’s Vicky here! I am happy to guest design here today and I am sharing my latest art journal layout!

For this layout I was inspired by the typewriter die that was waiting for me to use it for a while! For my background I used distress paint and I added texture with tissue paper, embossing paste and some of my favorite stencils.

Lots of techniques were used such as stamping, shading, die cutting and more.

Glass glitter and glossy accents were used for the finishing touches. You can watch the how-to video for a step by step tutorial on creating this layout.

Watch the video:


Thanks for reading today and thanks again to Vicky for being our fabulous guest!
