Spotlight on Tim Holtz – Day2

Are you ready for another art journal?! I made a layout today showcasing tons of Tim Holtz products including new stamps, old stamps, distress inks, distress paints, distress markers and many many more!


Today I created a layout that I would call a typical Vicky style! LOL! I just love having stacks of things like books in this case. I have already stacked bookes, cups and cupcakes in other layouts. Combine it with a nice quote and you have a fun layout.


I used distress markers to color the books and the cup and distress paints on my background. And just because “cracked pistachio” is new to my stash I just couldn’t keep away from it.


For my border I randomly stamped one of the grunge images by Tim Holtz and added some white highlights to pop it out a bit more.


You can enjoy the how-to video below or at my YouTube channel

    Absolutely fabulous!! More muted than the one from yesterday but a different kind of ‘LOVELY’!! You’ve done this book theme before, on a much older journal post, and that was really wonderful too! Thank you for sharing all these fantastic ideas with us!!

    Hi Vicky. It is almost 2 a.m. here in my part of Canada and I could not sleep so checked my email and an email from YouTube showing your videos were there. I am so glad that I got it because no better way to pass the time than to watch you create magic. Wow, and Wow again. Your amazing girl! You have been blessed with some serious talent. And loved so much how you can be so patient and calm while creating and even making mistakes seem so relaxing and no big deal. Love that about you. Thanks for the give away and best of luck to everyone. Big Hugs.

    I simply love your art journals! I really think your style is very unique – colorful, well balanced and sometimes even funny. I love to watch the process and your comments and the nonchalant way you treat ‘mistakes’ which then turn out to be fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing your art and please don’t stop. I think you’ve got a lot of fans worldwide. I also love your cards and tried out a number of techniques you’ve shown us, but the art journal pages are just fantastic.
