    I have been a big fan of your work. I look forward to following you on pinterest and checking out all of the resources that you have on your new website. I really do like the organization of the site. Nice job!!! Gorgeous journal page today — great balance of the composition and love the color.

  7. I saw this the other day…gorgeous and all you! Love it!!!

  8. Gorgeous. Love that black embossing paste and Peacock Feathers – wow. I haven’t tried that color yet.

  9. You know I love that color!!!! Awesome art journal and now I’m thinking I need to get some more stencils cuz I don’t have those two….. and honestly, I love how you added the tissue paper to cover up a smudge. Sometimes I think I’m the expert at that, since I always seem to make those. 🙂

    Beautiful colours and dimension – really this is fabulous.

  15. Lovely page, gorgeous colours, and I love that stamp! Valerie

  16. What a lovely page, Marjie! Great background. The flowers and arrows are
    a great asset.

  17. That black embossing paste is so magnificent! I think I just might have to procure some of that for myself…it just pops against your blue!

  21. Sooooooooo beautiful!! I loveeeeeeee the colors and those flowers!!!

  22. This is just beautiful. Love the pops of green in the leaves! Going to buy that embossing paste right now! I think it will be the key to my embossing woes….
