Hello lovelies!!
A pretty journal page today, playing around in my medium size, Art by Marlene 3.0 journal.

Began with a new stencil, for me, by The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW812 – Coronet Wreath. I sponged half crescents up the page in a variety of blues. It created a really pretty, but simple background for the page

Next, I used a variety of Art by Marlene products that you can get from Lulu Art Store. Collage papers, die cut books, stampBM20 – ‘feathers’ , ‘whimsy & bright’ watercolor set and also one of Marlene’s newer stamp set designs from her 3.0 collection – ‘Bohemian Flowers’

The video takes you through how I set up and created the page. I really enjoyed how it turned out… bright and cheery! I also loved that I got to use my sewing machine on this page, just a little. This is one of the benefits of a loose paged art journal like Art by Marlene offers… so great to be able to pull a page out and sew. A few loose threads here and there are always so pretty!

Enjoy watching the video… captions explain along the way what I did.

Have fun and hope you give this journal page a try.
