Spellbinders Partner Blog Hop Spring 2015

It's my pleasure to be part of the Spellbinders Partner Blog Hop today.  I've decided to jazz up an art journal cover, so it has a bit of personality of its own, right there on the outside.

(1) Marjie Kemper Art Journal Cover for Spellbinders Partner Blog Hop

I created this cover with products from the DecoArt media line and Spellbinders dies. Please visit the DecoArt blog for a full step-by-step tutorial with lots of photos, and for a chance to win some amazing prizes.

Thanks for the visit!  If we're not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter.

    Stunning cover! Just been over to the Decoart blog, absolutely adore the way you used the dies together with those paints. The additional stenciling looks fantastic too and the edging with black really brought it to life for me!
