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.

    My dear Vicky! This video was another amazing experience!
    Very artistic with personality and tips for several techniques.
    This page though, stands out for the realistic view, to my opinion.
    I mean, I really think that in a minute the stack will crush down
    and I’m ready to take my vettex to wipe off the stains!!!
    Congratulations once again and YES I would love to see art journal video more often, thank you!

  16. Vicky, Barb had told me about your art journaling and have been a huge fan ever since! BUT, this video had my jaw on my lap!!! I can’t believe you hand cut out those stamps! I learned so much from just this one video and hope to complete my first page from your inspiration…. Have a most joyful holiday season!

    Hello Vicky,
    I have just found our delightful video via France @’Papillon sur la branche’. Your video is absolutely AWESOME. It’s been such a treat to sit and watch the process and how it evolves along with the gorgeous detail and interest in the finished spread. I would certainly LOVE to see more of your videos and a weekly one sounds brilliant.
    I’m hoping to look through your other videos too when time permits.
    Warmest best wishes from across the miles here in France.

    Hi Vicy
    Yes we like to see more and more , video a week such a great idea.
    I’d like to ask about the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint multimedia matte..Why it comes in colour in their website?? what is the purpose?

    December 6, 2013

    • vicky said:

      I think you mixed up things a bit. These are two different products by Claudine. She has the “Multi-Medium” in Matte and Gloss finishes which is an art quality gel medium used for gluing, image transfers, sealing art, creating glazes etc. And then she has these other colored bottles (they do look the same) but they are called “Semi-Gloss Paint” which is a collection of 15 highly pigmented, artist quality acrylic paints. Creamy in consistency, they can be mixed together for an endless palette of colors without becoming muddy. Hope this helps!

    I really enjoyed watching you create this. And the end result looks fantastic. I want to do an art journal myself and you have helped
    me see that it is perfectly do-able, especially with you showing us the ropes in you demonstration videos. Thank you so much for taking the trouble to show us how its done. I do believe i will actually start one now and stop procrastinating over it. I can’t wait to see your other demo’s and look through your blog to see what other wonders you have created. Really grateful to you, thanks again, Mel x

    This is the first time I have seen your artwork! I loved this tutorial as it gave me tons of ideas and was encouraging to get beyond relying on dies and premade embellishments to make a scrapbook page or a card. Thanks for taking the time to do these tutorials as I learn so much.

    dear vicky am nelly and I am from Ecuador, I have been impressed by your skill to me is art, it’s beautiful. I wish you all the variety of materials that you have had in Ecuador but not there, so I feel very sad of not making jobs like yours. I work at home making cards designed, because I am a housewife and do some like that would be great.
    Learn to get those materials.
    thanks for everything, excuse the English, because I’m using the translator
