Art Journaling Video ~ Using Mop-Up Pages

Marjie Kemper Video - Art Journaling with Mop-up Pages

Today I’m sharing a video I made while making this art journal page:

This page started out as the leftover blotter paper (or ‘mop up’ page) that I used to clean my paintbrushes and stamps on after other projects.  You can watch the video on Youtube or click the picture below:


And here are a few more pics:

  1. Stunning page – just been enjoying the video over at youtube. Love that it all started from mop-up and the idea of bringing it all together with the glaze is fantastic. Love the final stages as tag, heart, stencilling and sentiment arrive to make a glorious finish!
