Letting Go

Hey I'm still alive! Yes! I've been working on a lot of things lately, and wanted to share an art journal spread with you. It's the first video I've done in quite some time! (I'm a wee bit excited, too!)

I've been chatting with a bunch of friends, and they tell me art journaling is intimidating. For some reason, everyone has this idea that you have to invest a lot of money for 'fancy' supplies that you have no idea how to use. I decided to help my peeps out and give you doable projects each month with a supply list.

Would you like that? I'll sweeten the deal. What if I give you a video using that supply list? A video that shows you a project from start to finish. Would you be interested?

If you order from me before midnight central time July 11, you can use the hostess code VBVWX679 and be entered in a drawing for hostess benefits (with qualifying purchase of $20).

I get all excited just thinking about it! So, here's the first project! SQUEEE! Do you love it? I had so much fun making this, and I got a video that shows you how I made it. At the end of this post, I listed everything I used. At first glance, it looks like a lot, but if you're a stamper, you likely have most of these supplies anyway. The quote reads "There is victory in letting go of expectations."

I'm always in favor of something that allows me to play more with toys I already have. Who needs all those unitaskers? I want mileage out of my money!

Let me know what you think. Would you be likely to give it a try? Does it look fun? Are you ready to grow your inner artist? Want something to keep the kids busy this summer? Jump in! Let's play!

Please note: The audio for this video came out very softly. Please turn up the audio on the player and on your machine. This is my first video with my computer, so I'm learning! Thanks so much for your understanding!

Other ingredients: Dylusions Mixed Media Journal (small size); Gesso; Embossing paste, Mod Podge, Mama Elephant stamps (bunny and umbrella), Copic and Pitt pens, stencils.

Other recommendations: If you prefer to work on flat pages, buy a Canson mixed media pad, remove the spiral binding or tear the page from the pad to work individually. You can rebind them later when you have several pages completed.

    I don't know if it's me - but I'm getting no sound on this vid though!

  2. I'm sooooo happy to see someone doing those typical art-journal-pages, wich I adore with lots of Stampin' Up! supplies. I hope you don't mind of copying it. I'm a german SU-demonstrator and glad to gave me this Inspiration mixing Mixed-Media with SU-supplies! Thank you and best regards from Germany
