Enjoy the Little Things Art Journaling + Video


Hi readers! Happy Sunday to you! We have a special treat today with Vicky Papaioannou as our guest, and she’s made a couple very beautiful art journaling pages!  Be sure to watch the video to get the full instructions on how to recreate this beauty with your own twist! Some products to highlight that Vicky used are the Bricked Layering Stencil, Bitty Grunge stamps (to help “age” the wall of the house), Tattered Flower Garland, and of course the Window & Window Box.



Hi everyone, it’s Vicky Papaioannou and I am happy to guest design here today. So let’s make an art journal layout!

To make my project I mainly used distress paint by Tim Holtz along with a couple of his dies, stamps and stencils. The idea was to recreate an old Mediterranean house with terracotta bricks and a lovely window with flowers. Loved making this layout and those street signs really added a great final touch. You can watch the how-to video for a step by step tutorial on how I made the layout.

Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Vicky for being our awesome guest!
