A couple of weeks ago I was a guest designer over at the SimonSaysStamp blog, where I shared an art journal layout and tutorial.  If you didn’t have the chance to check it out there, I am posting it here today.


To create my background I used the new Infusions by PaperArtsy and for a striking result I went with orange and yellow shades on the background and with deep red for my poppies.


I really love creating backgrounds with the infusions, such an easy technique and the results are stunning. I also love that vintage look and feel of them.

  1. Clever Vicky, really nice layout. I’m going to have to check around and see if we have those “fusions” powders here in Victoria, BC Canada. They look like too much fun! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful techniques and video’s with all of us out here!

  2. Hi Vicky, I am Alina from Romania. I absolutely love your work! I watch with interest all your tutorials, they are awesome and I learn a lot from you. Keep up the good work and I wish you to have a lot of posts/tutorials.
    I managed to finish my first art journal page using advice and techniques from your tutorials 🙂
    Hugs and kisses from Romania

  3. I love this new design, however, the floral stamp set that you listed (Penny Black-Softly) does not have the same daisy-like flower as the journal page. Could you send us the correct stamp title? The “Softly” set is one I have already used on a mini journal floral notebook that you posted sometime back. I am anxious to find the title, as I cannot locate it by searching Penny Black distributors. Thank you, thank you. Diane
