This is one of the easiest art journal pages you could ever do. The backgrounds have already been created for you in this Insert book by Ranger. Its the Dyalog "Backgrounds" Book by Ryan Reaveley, and all the work is already done! If you are a lover of Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, then this is an easy introduction to creating impressive art journal pages without all the work of layering.
The stamp I have used for the main image is the "Blythe Green" digital stamp, which I designed for my ETSY STORE.
The sentiment is from Impression Obsession, and the ink is Tuxedo Memento black ink.

I wanted to share this new concept with you. It's an idea I came up with that I'm calling "Embedded Frames."
I used the Tree builder punch from Stampin' Up! to cut out some "grass" for my stamped puppy and kittens to sit on.
Have a marvellously creative day, and don't forget to check out my ETSY store for more ideas.

This Travellers Notebook Layout is now available for instant download in my ETSY store.
I have made a real - time process video of how I covered my Travellers' Notebook and put together this spread using the PINK BLOSSOM SUITE.
It's easy to cut out the quote blocks and background paper to the size of your page
then add whatever embellishments you have to hand.
I added a folded paper doily under the "Oh Happy Day" block, which I backed with some black card stock , then added the wooden word "celebrate." I show you how easy it is to custom die this piece by simply using a stamp pad. Some Nuvo drops and a heart-shaped chipboard were added for the finishing touch.
Hashtag your creations #vickiparfenowstamps
I would love to see what you make with this kit!

My ETSY STORE is finally open for business! This has been a dream of mine for so long. I will be doing a series of videos on Youtube showing how to make the most of the products.
I have stocked the shop with printables of my design and art work, plus wall quotes that are ready to print and frame in A4 size. There are also some cute printables of my big-eyed dolls....if you are a Blythe lover, you may enjoy these too.
