2016-01-11; The makings of an art journal page (page #2)

2016/01/11

I haven’t done a start to finish photo pictorial in a long, long time. One of my stamping friends was interested to see the steps in making one of the little 4×4″ art journal pages. I kept the description extremely short, put pictures of what I was using in the shot and just let the photos show you the steps.

Super heavy picture post!
