Art Journal : Take life one cup at a time

Time for another art journal! I had so many requests about a new layout and I couldn’t resist a bonus mid-week video.

Today’s art journal is super fun and colorful. I just love the outcome.


I did draw all the coffee and tea cups and then stack them all together. And take a look at the background! Such texture and super easy to make. Here are some close-ups


Aren’t those tea tags the cutest?


I am thinking of making art journal videos more regularly… like once a week. So maybe a Sunday card video and a mid-week art journal video.  What do you all think?

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel here. If you want to see all of my art journal videos just click here.


Thank you all for visiting! don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already!

    You make the art journal pages look so easy. I am not as creative but with the videos, I hope to create my own journal. Thanks for your “how-to” to use the tools, etc. and what you like to use to create the page.

    Vicky, you’re an angel!
    By hazard i found this on youtube and for the last two days I’ve been watching your clips!!! ( I couldn’t find a bettet Way to play hide and seek with the sun – guess what, I won all the time 🙂 ) Thanks!
    Now I know what I’m goding to give my best friend when she turns 50 in January. (She lives in Dubai and lack nothing I think).
    I have to improvise though since f ex I can’t find all the supplies you use here in Sweden ( Gelatos and Big brush – I really fell in love with them).
    Finally I’ll use all the scrapping and stampning supplies I’ve been buying throughout the years and which are actually collecting dust in my cupboard since I’ve been into Vedic Art painting.
    Thanks for being so inspiring!

    Hi Vicky,

    This was the first art journal tutorial I ever saw and it introduced me to this beautiful mixed media world I did not even know existed. Since then I have been watching and trying out a lot of techniques. But honestly This video continues to be my favourite… 🙂 … Is it alright if I add your url to any art journal blog article I write anytime I future for others to watch and get inspired? Waiting for your next art journal post EAGERLY..
