    I loved to see how your “antiqued” the begonia. Then it’s perfect for Shabby Chic cards.

    Because of your disc-bound flower journal, I was inspired to purchase the punch and discs to create an art journal so that I could add pages as I painted them. Thank you and I’m having fun with it. I love this Begonia set from Altenew and it was perfect for your beautiful page,

    Thanks Vicky…I always enjoy your work, but usually hate art journaling…however I enjoyed the smaller size and you may have solved one of my problems. I love Bible journaling but hate when it comes through the back of the page, so your flower journal could become my Bible verse journal. Thanks again.

    I too really love those begonias. WOW. Adding the Pitt pen to them made them really come alive. And the vintage look I always love. Between the flowers the “wood” and the burlap the page has a real earth feel to it … like being in a garden or outdoors. Amazing page! Thank you for the video. Some good tips to try!! I really appreciate all your videos, but I must admit the art journals are extra special.
