    I enjoyed watching how you created your journal pages. Such a neat process, I love how the completed pages came out. I still have not created a journal but I love how interesting you can make the pages look! Thank you Vicky for your wonderful inspiration.

    What a fun video!! Thanks for going back to basics. Really helpful reminders. And I have found the tip to use loose paper to create (and then add to a book — I use a 3 ring binder) very helpful and I tend to feel so much less intimidated. I LOVE the quote on the owl page!!!! Very wise words! I need to blow that up, frame it and hang it up where I will see it all the time … and use it as a mantra!!!!!!!! It’s fascinating to me how you used the same techniques but have 3 totally different looks. So cool!! Thank you so much for the video, Vicky! As always, much appreciated.

    Do you have a link for the art journal book you used. I would like to start with that style of book.

    • It’s an art journal by Art by Marlene from an older collection. I don’t have a link, I think it’s not available any more… but the size of the pages is 5×7 , use thick watercolor paper and make your own. Bind them in any ring binder you like.
