It’s no secret I love to play with art supplies so I was jumping for joy when I was invited to play with goodies from USArtQuest and Susan Pickering Rothamel and StencilGirl stencils! It’s mixed media big time…I’m mixing together all different supplies in this one art journal page!
I’m a huge fan of Susan ever since being enthralled in her demoing at Stampaway over the years. I’m teaching again this year at Stampaway and my fingers are crossed that she’ll be there demoing again so I can watch her magic in person!
In the video, I create this art journal page from start to finish but at the very end I do something that shows my age!
Watch Mixed Media Art Journal Play on YouTube.
Here’s a close up shot of the Prills…love the organic feel to these little circles of fun!

I love everything about this play page! Those Prills are kind of cool. I don’t think I heard an oops in there either… 🙁 . I like seeing how you over come your oopses 🙂
Juicy and joyful play I’d say. xox
I have a bottle of PPA that I’m hoarding because I bought it for $9 at LEAST 20 years ago.
Maybe it’s time to use it? Thanks for the push. =)
Love how playful this is. I have to investigate all these things. I love the ppa, been using it for years, great bond. I am looking forward to this hop!

This is what I most love when it comes to your videos: they are fun, easy to recreate and fun to watch! A pleasure to see you work on camera! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for showing the Prills up close. Love the stenciled building and the way you used the tape for texture.
Hope I am not entered twice. Site said I timed out.
Such a fun page, Carolyn! I love the wrinkled tape technique – great texture. And the prills are fantastic. I have never thought of adding them to a journal page. Thanks for the great video 🙂
i love the word stencils! Cool background effect.
Carolyn you always inspire me!
I love to play with art supplies too! When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and be a secretary simply because I could have lots of paper and pens around. 😀
Gorgeous and fun- I always like how fun your projects are and how they flow and you let them just come out!
fabulous & fun!
Carolyn, you never cease to amaze me-as well as make me laugh!! Yup, I remember those antennas too! Glad you added more! Also, glad that you showed the fibers with the heat gun and tape- I will have to give that a whirl!1 Thanks so much for the inspiration! hugs
I love your colorful art! what would we do in a B&W world? Crush strawberries!

I’m just simply amazed at this beautiful work of art… I’m a beginner & I would love to win & create some beautiful things!!!

Loved the video. I’ve been using USArtquest products or 20 years. Great products! Love Susan Pickering Rothmel! Great to see these products being used by this group of artists.
Took a little time to watch this video. So happy I did. I have never done an art journal, but you have made me want to try one. Hope I can get started on one soon. Thanks for the lovely and informative video of your fun page.
