Country View Challenges - Guest Designer - On Your Travels

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to be here today as the Guest Designer for the wonderful monthly mixed media challenge blog COUNTRY VIEW CHALLENGES! I was just thrilled when I received an email from Chris asking me if I would do a guest spot and when she told me the theme was On Your Travels, I just knew it was time for another journal page!!






I would like to send out a big thank you to my wonderfully sweet and super talented friend Sara Emily of sarascloset. She sent me this fantastic stamp set by Tim Holtz called The Journey, which gave me the inspiration for my journal page. Thanks Sara, you`re the best!!

I highly recommend you zoom in on a few of these pictures so you can see the amazing textures that I achieved with my new bag of goodies from DecoArt. To view a full supersized image, right click the image and then hit 'open image in new tab'.

So along with another journal page comes...you guessed it...another video tutorial!! Hope you aren't getting sick of them yet. Every time I do a journal page with a video, I learn a little bit more about the art and about the video editing. I have cut down a bit on the boring repetitive stuff, hopefully making it easier to get through.

If I may push my luck and ask a favour of anyone who goes to the YouTube page to watch the video, could you please hit the little thumbs up button for me. That is how YouTube ranks the videos, by the number of "likes". Thank you so much, I really appreciate all of your support!! So here is it, hope you enjoy!

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

Love it Pamellia you are a real artist.xxx

You are truly a walking advertisement for every product you use...I must get these DecoArt things! I'm tickled pink that you are getting some use out of your journey stamps :):), and it warms my heart that you were inspired by them! Thank you for your sweet words! My gosh, I just am in awe at how easy you make your beautiful artwork look to create! You are so neat and organized, too! It is great to get a tiny glimpse into that wonderful brain of yours to see your creative process, and I'm most grateful for the time and energy you go to, to make these videos. Your music is fabulous, too, and really inspires me on top of the inspiration I get from seeing your sensational artwork! Oh! AND you designed the map! WOW!!!! I think I will go slink back into my Closet and TRY to make my gracious brother and sister in law a thank you card for entertaining us on our way up to Capon Springs. I may just have to borrow an idea or two as time is short. Thank you for all the inspiration, my friend! Big hugs to you for today!
