It’s Sunday and time for an art journal layout. And just because I had so much fun featuring Tim Holtz products through out the week, I couldn’t stay away from them today.

art journal paris

My layout is all about Paris! I have been wanting to make a page about Paris for a quite a while after my last trip there. So today I finally decided to dive in to it!


I used my favorite golds and oranges for the background and the focal points where all die cuts from Sizzix dies, designed by Tim Holtz.


And can you see the little photos in the windows? They are all photos that we took on out last visit there. I used my computer to make them tiny enough to fit and print them out on regular photocopy paper. You can’t really tell in the photo by they are nice and shiny like a real photo wheel!


My regular go-to techniques were all used in this layout. You can enjoy the how-to video here or at my YouTube channel here.


I will announce the winners of my Tim Holtz giveaway on Monday 16th, since I just couldn’t find the time to do it this weekend. Thank you all so much for visiting today.

  6. Hi Vicky, Love your videos. I’m always anxious for the next one. aving been to Paris the Paris one is close to my heart. Will probably steal some of your ideas, but also make it my own. You are costing me a lot of money as I have to get some of their products. Ranger must love you as you increase their revenue by tempting all of your followers to want to buy. Thank again, Diane

  8. Great job, Vicky! You are the art journal page queen 🙂 I admire you, how easy you can fix any mistakes on your pages. I would pull my hair out 🙂

  9. I love all your art ! Could you tell me what program you used to get your pictures that small and what was the finished size of the pictures.

    1. I used photoshop to shrink them. I also used my ruler to measure the little windows, so if I remember correctly I ended up having photo squares of just over half an inch.

  10. Hi !!!
