  5. This beautifully colorful, vibrant work is just amazing! I love watching the journal page come together and as always, you know just when to stop. That is a gift in itself!

  6. My eye is not usually drawn to vivid colours on art journal pages but for me this would not have worked any other way!! Gorgeous page. :)

  7. Another great video. Thanks so much. I'm new to art journalling so just wondering why you used a different ink to stamp the houses? Thanks

    1. Hi Margaret. I use Archival on pages where I need a permanent ink over non porous mediums, but Versafine on porous surfaces as it is a more jet black ink than Archival. Versafine does not dry on non porous surfaces, so that's why I cannot use it over acrylic paints etc.
