Art Journal Page: Bloom

Have a great month everyone and thank you for joining me today! I have a new art journal page for you today, colorful and full of flowers. And I have a BIG surprise… I did a voice over video today! Too nervous about that, hope you will NOT hate my Greek accent! LOL!

Here is my page:

and here are some more close ups.


All the flowers are dimensional, with lots of white dots and some of them are embellished with little buttons.


“Bloom where you are planted” is the quote and I colored my chipboard letters using distress paint.


Take a look at the antennas, they are made out of wire.

You can watch the video below or at my YouTube channel.

    Vicki – I have written before about how coming home and listening to a couple of your videos calms me after a stressful day at work. I love your Greek accent. I hope one day you will do voice overs on all your videos. I have a hard time just watching them unfold without hearing you. When i do decide to watch I have to turn the music off. I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor (I’m fine); but, the night before seeing the neurologist the only thing that completely calmed me was watching you complete an art journal and hearing your cheerful votive. Thank you.

    I like the voiceover tutorial because I am an auditory and visual learner. I enjoy your Greek accent. I know how you feel since I don’t live where I was raised. People have smiled at my accent for 30 years and have asked me where I am from. Most people enjoy hearing my accent and smile because they like hearing something different and not because they are making fun. I’m sure the same is true for you. Keep up the great instructional videos with a voice over. By the way you have lovely hands and arms with beautiful skin.

    Hi Vicky,
    May I please know the distress ink colors you used in this video? I’ve looked throughout the information given but can’t find where anyone else asked for the colors. I tried to catch the colors on the sides of the pads by pausing the video over and over, but I can’t quite catch them all. Thank you for showing us your “how-to’s” of your beautiful work. I love the vibrant colors you use.

    Thankyou so much for sharing your wonderful art work . Do you have a video just for browsing through your journal? I hope one day to be able to create something half as beautiful one day, so I will keep watching and learning.

    Thank you Vicki for your videos and voice overs. You are a true artist and an exceptional teacher. Watching your process is wonderful but watching and hearing your voice and listening to the teaching is just the best! Your colors and design are appealing and expressive. Each piece that you have done in video teaches new ideas. Thank you.
