Dear Diary Day 2016 - Art Journal Tutorial

Anyone who follows me knows how I love Art Journaling and to me, Art Journaling IS the ultimate way of recording thoughts and feelings for prosperity.
      
For this page I have used the fabulous Pebeo Studio Acrylics paints along with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

CRAFTY TIP: Die cut the leaves first, then press the die cuts onto the upturned coordinating stamps.
This helps get a far more accurate impression than trying to line the dies up over a pre-stamped image!
