After a long time and since many of you were asking for it, it was about time to share another art journal page!

Although I love making them, they require sometime as well as double the time on video editing, uploading etc. I managed to finish this page working in three days for a couple of hours each. Well, I am a detail maniac, I don’t like messy pages and I prefer taking my time for an outcome that pleases me. In conclusion, it’s not as quick as creating a card in 20 minutes. But it’s more rewarding and fills than need to be creative and play with us much of your supplies as possible.

So here is what I made, inspired by autumn obviously!

The leaves are die cuts using a Tim Holtz die, I also used distress inks, distress paints, gelatos and markers.

And guess what? I created the pumpkins from scratch… no stamping… just drawing! Here is a close-up:

On the chipboard alphabet I used crackle paint and the effect was just amazing. Check it out below:

And here is a closer look to the  die cut and distressed leaves. The acorns are form the blueprints Tim Holtz stamp collection.

    Thanks for the trick about the twine, I would never have thought to use it like that with glossy accents.

  2. I am in awe! That is so beautiful! Fall colors are my favorite and you made them just dance on the page. I also liked the tip about the string. Thanks for the video.

  7. You are simply AMAZING! This page is one of my faves too . . . but then every one has been. Your talents are never ending. The coloring on the leaves and the pumpkins – outstanding. And the vines …. what a great technique. I learn something new every time I watch one of your videos. Wish I had a fraction of your artistic talent. Thank you so much for sharing with all of your fans.

  8. Vicky, this page is my favorite so far!! Your colors, textures, stamping and shading all look amazing!! Gorgeous work! LOVED watching you create this one!! ♥♥♥

  10. OMG…. Vicky this is absolutely FABULOUS! I love all about your page, thank you for sharing techniques and inspiration. Watching your work, was a total pleasure! You made my day!

    I’m so glad you showed this one. the colors are to die for I love it.
    It’s so interesting to see how you go about doing things. I’m learning a lot from watching you. I love how you tell the story.
    Great colors and a fun rich picture. Very rich in color. Love it.

  12. It was an amazing noteworthy video,as always, and an inspiration for all of us. Many technics and I’m astonished of how you create art out of nothing(I mean the pumpkins). It surely requires painting skills 🙂
    Thank you personally for making my hidden dream place even bigger, without borders I would say….

  20. Vicky, this video was definitely not too long. Your art journal page was absolutely beautiful and absolutely inspiring. I can’t wait to see your next entry.

  21. You have amazing talent! Thank you for sharing it with us. Your 24 minute video was so enjoyable I wished it was longer!

  22. I really enjoyed watching this journal page come to life. I especially liked to see the pumpkins come to life, from start to finish. My haul should be coming so, then I will start my own very journals, thanks to you. Eve

  23. Your journals and cards are an inspiration! I’ve not been scrapbooking long and your videos have helped me tremendously with ideas and tools. My son was very talented with great potential in many areas but he became a victim of cancer and passed away 3 days after his 24th birthday. I want to tell the story of his life in an artistic and creative manner that he would be proud of. You have certainly given me a vision of how to accomplish my goal in excellent videos. Thank you so much for sharing!

  24. Every time I watch another of your videos, I think, “No wait, THIS one’s my favorite!”. They’re ALL my favorites, is that possible … I’m a novice to art journals, having only 4 layouts to my name now, but with your video tutorials, I’ve made SO many notes on what I want to do different (and better!) thanks to you … Beautiful work, thank you for the inspiration.

  25. You are amazing! I feel like I can do this!!! Thank you so much for the inspiration! God Bless! Pamie G.

  26. Hello I love your ‘Fall ‘ journal page. I don’t see the name of the script stamp nor do I see the product name for the chip board heart embellishments. Can you give me those products names please? Again my thanks. I love your work!

  27. Vicky, I just recently came across your blog and I am addicted! Every art Journal Page I go through I say wow you are so talented page after page. I really want to thank you for sharing. You are the best.
