Welcome to another art journal layout using lots of fun mixed media techniques, such as sprays, stencils, collage and more!
I am working on a page from my custom made 8×8 disc bound art journal. You can see a video on how I did it here. To create my background I used a couple of shimmer dylusion sprays in Pure Sunshine ( SBC | SSS | JGG ) and Bubblegum Pink ( SBC | SSS | JGG ). The sentiment is the Quote Stamp – Artist ( DRK ) stamp. In the list of supplies at the bottom of this post you will find a few more fun quotes by Darkroom Door in the same style.
To add some texture and dimension I also used Texture Paste ( JGG ) over my Darkroom Door POLKA DOTS Large Stencil ( SSS ). I love that texture paste does not resist color but before everything was completely dry I used a paper towel to wipe off some of the color. So I got this lovely dirty look where you can definitely see the dots but they are not clear white.
For my focal points I combined two stamps, the Darkroom Door ARTIST BRUSHES ( SSS ) and the Darkroom Door PAINT TUBES Eclectic Rubber ( SSS ). I colored and fussy cut everything and then I created a lovely bouquet!
To embellish my bouquet even more I added some leaves that I cut using the Die-namics Fab Foliage ( MFT | SSS ) and a string to keep everything together.
I also used a few of my Dylusions Paint Pens ( SBC | JGG | SSS ) to add color at the bristles of my brushes.

Every time I see your art journals I want to start my own. I just need more mediums in my crafty stash
I love you work Vicky, so inspiring!
And I thought bouquets were made of just flowers, unless you are Vicky Papaioannou! This is such a fun, awesomely creative, layout, Vicky, and a perfect representation of you! I always look forward to your creations whether they be cards, journal layouts, or dimensional art pieces.
I started out watching your card videos but now I’m really interested in doing an art journal. I checked your link to Joggles and they don’t have 8×8 journals. Do you know somewhere else to find them? Thanks for the inspiration.
This is custom made, I have a blog post and a video on how I did it here http://www.clips-n-cuts.com/2018/03/diy-disc-bound-art-journals/
Just watched the You Tube video. You make wonderful art look so easy! Love every project!
Love this art journal page. I enjoy your videos so much and watch them multiple times for techniques. I don’t have as many supplies, but I’ve learned to improvise.
Another wonderful video and layout. Love that sentiment, works perfectly with the layout. Thanks for sharing this with us.
As always, a very nice journal page. Love watching you make these. As soon as these stamps are in stock I’m going to be getting them. Thank you for the inspiration ❤️
I love the layers of color and texture! Thanks for the video!
As always, I love your journal layout, the colors you choose, the stamps and stencils you use. I love watching your videos because you give me so many ideas. Thank you!
Vicky, this is so awesome. I am loving your art journal pages.
Love your layout. I love watching all your videos. I learn so much from you. Thank you.
A stunning page Vicky, I love the craft stuff stamps from Darkroom Door. The idea of een bouquet of the brushes and tubes is great. I always admire the way in which you always process multiple textures and do not let it become a mess.
Oh! I love this Vicky! I can’t wait to sit and watch the video later so that I can enjoy it. Thanks so much for sharing your art!
I love the page you created! What a clever idea to make the paint brushes into a bouquet. The colors and textures on your project are beautiful! I have to say my heart skipped a few beats when you cut the sentiment stamp. Lol, I’m not sure I could do that.
Un beau thème qui te va comme un gant. Belle journée !
LOVE this journal page, so fun and colorful! The bouquet of brushes is brilliant and I love the stencil and spray techniques too. Thanks for another awesome and inspiring video tutorial.
thank you great layout and design, thank you for sharing
Really like this one too. I have no idea how you come up with these.. Even the simplest little things, like using your thin black marker to do little sketches here and there. I would never think to do that. You’re truly amazing. Thanks so much for sharing.
Wow! I love this work!!
Just love it, the brushes look so real they literally fool me and such beautiful colors. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for this page that really gave me the wish to do one. Do not have your ink sprays so used paints, internet prints for the brushes and stamps for the tubes of paints. I insert a link to view it.
