  1. Oh I just love this page!!! And that quote …!!!!! How much fun is all of that! Love the “x”‘s as faux stitching; the tip on how to brighten the colors of the collage piece … all of it. I was working on a new project the other day, stuck down some paper with collage glue and ended up with some bubbles after the glue dried. I couldn’t understand what happened because I was careful to really smooth out the paper. I very well may have used too much glue on those spots where I got bubbles. I can/will cover them up. As soon as Joggles gets Marlene’s latest products back in stock and they arrive in my mailbox, I’m going to give this a try: no plan — just sit down and play. It would be good — especially now — to free myself up again. Thank you very much, Vicky

  2. Just LOVE this! I’m going back to the one you uploaded the other day. The tag journal and loading up on things from Marlene! She’s like you, an amazing artist!

  3. What a fun page and the quote is so true!!
    Thank you so much for todays Art Journal video tutorial , it’s always a great joy to watch.
    Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Vicky I just love your Art Journal pages – I could watch and listen to you all day.
    Quite often I go to your blog just so I can watch your pieces of art over again.
    Such a fun page – just what we need in our crazy world.

  5. Vicky, you have made a lot of art journal pages that I adored, but this one takes the cake! It is so colorful and whimsical! Only you would have the imagination to create this! Keep up the good work (because I love it) be safe!

  6. Dyan’s designs are wacky and you captured the best of both of your styles in this page! I am always amazed how you take all the ingredients and make something fabulous out them.

  7. Great art journaling quote for Day 28, our world in lockdown! Question: what collage sheet used in the house cutouts for the house on the bottom right with flat roof? I have both, but could not find that specific “house.” Thanks, Kandace
