Happy New Year Art Journal Tutorial!

Hi there friends! I was recently making an art journal page, inspired by the amazing and talented Vicky Papaioannou's New Year Art Journal video, and thought I'd make a little tutorial. Sometimes when you look at a mixed media piece it's hard to pull apart the layers and see where to start. It's really not that hard and following these steps you can create your own piece - either in an art journal, on a canvas, or even on a tag.

Here's a look at my art journal page in my Dylusions Art Journal:

And here are some step by step directions to get you started:

I used a  white gel pen to write down my goals around the page. This beautiful script stamp, sequins and stars are from the Believe Script stamp set by Pink and Main.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have you set any goals for 2016? I hope this inspires you to get out some paints and inks and have fun playing!
