Time for another art journal! I had so many requests about a new layout and I couldn’t resist a bonus mid-week video.

Today’s art journal is super fun and colorful. I just love the outcome.


I did draw all the coffee and tea cups and then stack them all together. And take a look at the background! Such texture and super easy to make. Here are some close-ups


Aren’t those tea tags the cutest?


I am thinking of making art journal videos more regularly… like once a week. So maybe a Sunday card video and a mid-week art journal video.  What do you all think?

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel here. If you want to see all of my art journal videos just click here.

  35. Hello Vicky,
    I have just found our delightful video via France @’Papillon sur la branche’. Your video is absolutely AWESOME. It’s been such a treat to sit and watch the process and how it evolves along with the gorgeous detail and interest in the finished spread. I would certainly LOVE to see more of your videos and a weekly one sounds brilliant.
    I’m hoping to look through your other videos too when time permits.
    Warmest best wishes from across the miles here in France.

  36. Oh my! Every time you do another art journal page I think it’s my favorite. This is amazing! I think I want to be you when I grow up. LOL! And yes, it would be wonderful if you did an art journal video every week. I know I’d love it! Thanks! You truly inspire me.

    Kristine 🙂

  43. Hi Vicky,

    I just found your YouTube channel and I love your work, especially your journal pages. You make everything look so easy. Thanks for sharing. I’ve become a follower of your channel and your blog.

  44. I would love to see a new art journal weekly from you but it might be too much to ask. One a month would be fabulous too!

  45. Hi Vicy
    Yes we like to see more and more , video a week such a great idea.
    I’d like to ask about the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint multimedia matte..Why it comes in colour in their website?? what is the purpose?

    1. I think you mixed up things a bit. These are two different products by Claudine. She has the “Multi-Medium” in Matte and Gloss finishes which is an art quality gel medium used for gluing, image transfers, sealing art, creating glazes etc. And then she has these other colored bottles (they do look the same) but they are called “Semi-Gloss Paint” which is a collection of 15 highly pigmented, artist quality acrylic paints. Creamy in consistency, they can be mixed together for an endless palette of colors without becoming muddy. Hope this helps!

  46. Love it!! How do I get more? You are an awesome artist! Also style of presenting your work is what makes me want to see more!!

  47. Hello Vicky,

    I stumbled upon this video today and OH MY GOD, I’m in AWE!! I watched all the voice-over ones and am highly impressed and totally inspired. I think I’ll start an art journal for myself now. 🙂

    Thanks you for sharing your amazing work!!

  48. Vicky, thank you so much for publishing these videos! I just found you today on YouTube and through the entire video, I was wishing that we could access a supply list. You are the best! Please publish many more as you definitely have a new fan!


  49. I really enjoyed watching you create this. And the end result looks fantastic. I want to do an art journal myself and you have helped
    me see that it is perfectly do-able, especially with you showing us the ropes in you demonstration videos. Thank you so much for taking the trouble to show us how its done. I do believe i will actually start one now and stop procrastinating over it. I can’t wait to see your other demo’s and look through your blog to see what other wonders you have created. Really grateful to you, thanks again, Mel x

  50. You’re art journal is just creative and beautiful. …I love you ideas. Can’t wait to see more!. Fan of your crafts.

  51. This is the first time I have seen your artwork! I loved this tutorial as it gave me tons of ideas and was encouraging to get beyond relying on dies and premade embellishments to make a scrapbook page or a card. Thanks for taking the time to do these tutorials as I learn so much.

  52. You are incredible and so talented! I had a smile on my face the entire time I watched this! You opened my eyes to wonderful shading techniques. Thank you and keep going!!!

  53. I just love your work and look forward to seeing more. You encourage me to keep going as I always seem to make a mess of things so now I will hopefully learn some techniques from you. Thank you so much.

  54. dear vicky am nelly and I am from Ecuador, I have been impressed by your skill to me is art, it’s beautiful. I wish you all the variety of materials that you have had in Ecuador but not there, so I feel very sad of not making jobs like yours. I work at home making cards designed, because I am a housewife and do some like that would be great.
    Learn to get those materials.
    thanks for everything, excuse the English, because I’m using the translator

  55. Absolutely wonderful. I love your very whimsical, and happy art and need this in my life now. I am going to follow you just so I can stay happy!
