art journal | things will work out

Hi! Today I am back with an art journal layout inspired by the current situation. It is highly influenced by Dyan’s day by day posts. Now that I stay at home I do lots of crafting and I so enjoy watching her videos.

    So awesome! Perfect theme for today’s mess, and an important one to get into our journals and scrapbooks. Like how you made the woman your own, Vicky! TFS!! I, too, am in desperate need of a haircut! And a pedicure!

    Absolutely BRILLIANT! I LOVE what you created and how you made everything your own; the idea of documenting these times; and I’m reminded that an art journal can be good therapy (a way to express how I feel). I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to have to get permission to go to the grocery store. We’re not there … yet.. Since I’m a high risk person I started my own “stay at home” order before it became official so I’ve been in lock down for about as long as you (seems longer). And I too desperately need a hair cut!!!!!! With all the creative encouragement I have been crafting more and enjoying it — especially since I live alone. During my life when I’ve gone through really difficult times, I began a craft project (usually a big stitching project) so that when the hard times passed I had something beautiful that came out of the darkness. That’s what your page reminds me. Thank you so very much, Vicky, for sharing this extra special (in my opinion) page. I appreciate you. May you be well; may you stay safe.

    Vicky – this is a terrific piece. Thank you so much. I was lucky enough to take one of Dyan’s classes several years ago when she visited the States. She is a fabulous artist and what you have done with her product is amazing. I so look forward to your posts. Sending love and hugs from across the sea. Stay safe!

    I love this page. I have not heard much on how Greece is coping at this time, in the UK they have covered Spain, Italy, and USA but not talked much about the rest of Europe

    Hi vicky. I am a big fan. I’ve binge watched almost all of your videos – going back more than 5 yrs. Really! You have amazing talent and you are great with video editing. I so much appreciate what you do. Thank you. You’re helping to make my shut in time way more pleasant. I wish you are yours the best. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us.
