Today we’re creating two fun projects! A gorgeous textural journal page and an all around durable art journal to handle all your projects.

Yupo is such a versatile material and once you seal it you can use it for almost any project. Its durability is perfect for journal covers and the sky’s the limit.

Using matte medium to seal your yupo gives you a ground to move onto new and exciting layers.

I hope you’ll experiment with yupo and be inspired to create with it!

Enjoy the video.

I'm a mixed media artist living my dream of creating every day and my passion for art has been with me from childhood. I've been teaching and painting for over 26 years in many different mediums, but found my art soul mate in mixed media.

I have been published in several magazines, and have been part of Donna Downey’s Artist Gang and Deco Art Media Design team for several years.

I produce my own line of stencils and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media.
