Hi Roben-Marie! I enjoyed today's video post, as I've been recently experimenting with the use of spray inks on my pages and projects, and am looking for different methods to try. Spraying things over my projects always scares me a little, because you never know exactly how it will turn out...but I can see here that your experimentation with ink is fun, free, and uninhibited, and I know I need to be more like this when I bring out this material!

Thanks! I always enjoy watching the process :)

Inspiration galore, as usual. Thanks for posting this. I ALWAYS enjoy watching the process you use for making your various journal pages. You give me such good ideas all the time! Hope all is well. This year's pictures taken in Greece are on my Facebook page if you have the time to peak. One is a nature album including animals and the other is doors, gates and address numbers similar to last year's album. As always, all the best to you! Barbara I.

Hi Roben-Marie! Great video! I find myself giggling everytime you use that large doily. It looks as though it's seen better days and might fall apart at any moment, lol.

Have a blessed week!

Oooh, LOVE the colors in this one and such a great video as always! And I really must bring my Portfolio Pastels out. They really add so much to your page! Blessings,

I loved what I saw of the video ~ It stopped 1/3 of the way through it. I don't know why. Loved it.

Hi Robyn!
This is the second of YOUR videos I've watched - among many others - and I decided this time (for the first time) I'd play along. MY journal pages (I did three at the same time) turned out NOTHING like yours but I had great fun creating and SO appreciate the tutorial! I'll post mine on flickr after I tweak them a bit. :)

LOVE your art!

Hi Roben Marie!

Thank you so much for sharing this page with us! This is amazing! Beautiful work, as always!

Our mediums may be different but oh boy the process is the same! I just loved that tapping finger, could hear the creative wheel whirling from here! As always love the page that evolved :-)

Wow! This tutorial was awesome and so is the art journal page. Love how you show us your tricks to making this so beautiful and rich. Thank you!

I honestly am entranced watching you put together your journal pages. The finger tapping is priceless! "I Love That" is perfect harmony.

I think this is my favorite, ever, of your journal pages. Will you ever offer a print of it for sale?

July 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterrenee

Je suis française et ne parle pas anglais, mais si tu peux me lire, je veux te dire combien j'adore ce que tu fais. Je me suis permis de prendre modèle sur une de tes réas, j'espère que tu ne m'en voudras pas ? Mais ce que tu fais est si beau que je n'ai pu résister à mettre en pratique tes conseils et te copier un peu pour apprendre, j'essaierai ensuite de voler de mes propres ailes grâce à tes magnifiques tutos. Merci pour tout et à bientôt. Bises

LOVE this video & the resulting page. Hoping for some free time soon so I can do some more experimenting with sprays and stencils. I enjoyed this so much I've shared it in my latest blogpost. So tempted to enrol for your mixed media mayhem class....

Roben-Marie....this is just another fabulous piece and I love to sit and watch as you play. The black outlines around the heart and circles make them pop and I love that you incorporated some old paper that you'd previously used as scrap sheets :)

July 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSharon Dale

Roben, love your technique videos, you inspire me! I noticed you are using LIquidtex inks, do you like that brand particularly? I saw FW at Plaza Art on Sunday and Liquidtex and would like to hear a recomendation or pros/cons? Any ideas from you?

July 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDiane Marra
