  1. That is a beautiful page. The background colors are gorgeous and the flowers just pop so beautifully on it.

  2. I love your art journal, and this daisy page is a beautiful addition. I enjoyed your YouTube video very much – it got me started on this Altenew blog hop.

  3. Love the Daisy page in your journal. I am thinking of decorating the pages of my plantings book that will name all of our plants in the new patio home we have. But first I am trying to set up my craft room….boxes and boxes yet to be unpacked.

  4. Vicky, I absolutely love your journal page. The background is wonderful and your daisy is lovely.
    You are so creative and I love how you add dimension and so much interest to your journal pages. Thank you for sharing your artistic inspiration!

  5. Beautiful. I really like the background and especially how some of the white of the texture paste sort of comes through the color. In other words, the color isn’t saturating the paste. I really like that look. Thanks, Vicky

  6. Beautiful flower art journal page, LOVE the depth of the blue background and the “white” daisies.

  7. I always enjoy seeing on your little flower journal pages come together. The new Craft -a-Flower Daisy is a perfect one for your journal. Really nice page!

  8. So pretty and happy! I don’t think of adding white pen to the leaves to give them dimension, so I’m glad to see how you have done that. Your layout and colors are inspiring!

  9. I absolutely am enamored with your use of the ink sprays, and seeing them in action. The color is so vibrant! What an adorable idea to create a flower journal ❤️

  10. I am SO glad I watched your video. Your background is gorgeous and so simple. Those sprays are so beautiful and create such cool effects. I like how you used embossing paste with the stencils. And of course your flowers and leaves are lovely as well!

  11. I absolutely love your flower journal with the different flowers!!! What an incredible idea!!! Your daisy page is amazing and I really like the background. I am so impressed. Thank you!

  12. So pretty! I’m just in love with these sweet daisies! Beautiful colors and background to show off these daisies!

  13. Beautiful layout for your journal! I love your subtle coloring on the flowers with the bold background! Stunning!

  14. Creating an art journal with flowers is a wonderful idea. Love the background you created here. Lots of color and texture so the daisies pop right off of it. Great job! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Lovely CAF set. Your art journal entry is perfect with the pretty flowers against the blue background Vicky, thanks for the inspiration!

  16. What a wonderful idea to create an ABC flower journal…ingenious!! I LOVE your page! Gorgeous color palette and layout!!

  17. O, Vicky! This background is beautiful. It helps that these are my favorite colors, but it would have been nice in a variety of bright colors. The texture, the printed stamp, the spatters—I thought adding anything more would ruin it! But no! The focal images were the perfect contrast to the background with their additional dimension. Thank you for sharing!

  18. Vicky, just love how your daisies pop off the page! It gives the impression of the daisies flowing in the wind! love your take!!!

  19. Organized a new craft room and was discouraged at all the nice journals I’ve collected but haven’t attempted to decorate as the possibilities are too vast. Seeing one of your flowers again has given me a focus and I am anxious to start playing with stamps, inks, and dies. I’m a huge flower lover so have quite an Altenew collection to enjoy.

  20. Oh, I was hoping you would do another page in your flower journal, and you did not disappoint! This flower is so cool….and your colors and layers and page design really make it look real. Love it!

  21. Really love seeing another page in the flower journal completed. I like the layers and color combination. Enjoying the mixed media projects.

  22. Beautiful page for your journal. I really like that the added to dimension to the layers. Makes the flower more interesting.

  23. What a fun journal type entry of a card! So unique and so pretty! I really like the tinctures you used in your color palette! Such vibrancy! This daisy die really is fantastic!

  24. Hi Vicky 🙂 I love your very creative “defining moment” 😉 Actually your mixed media is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
