The Garden of my Dreams!

Video of art journal page from start to finish with Julie Balzer and  Dina Wakley stencils and Dylusions spray inks with Carolyn DubeIt’s spring and this is the garden of my dreams!  Playing around in my art journal had me “planting” Julie Balzer’s Corn Flowers while Sally Carly by Dina Wakely marveled a the amazing colors of Dylusions inks!  Of course every good garden needs a touch of glitter…

Can’t see the video? See it on YouTube here.

A bonus for me as I was “gardening”.  Spray ink builds up on the stencil so I clean it off on journal pages.  These are some very happy starts to art journal pages!
