Hello Artist gang fans .... Fiona here with you today sharing a little art journal page I've created with some of Donna's Signature designs.

I love to use old books for my art journals for a couple of reasons. Mostly because I love the old paper they have in them but with this book in particular, it's all about the gorgeous pictures in it.

I hate covering them up all the time so my solution is to use a transparent paint and a mask to give me the option to keep some of the gorgeous pattern.

You can watch the video below to see how I work to keep this floral pattern and allow it to shine through in my final piece.

See you all again next month xx

I am a self-confessed art-a-holic who lives in South Australia. I have always been an artistic person right from a very young age. I’ve been blessed my whole life to be surrounded by encouraging and inspiring artistic women including my mum and my grandma who were both amazing oil painters. I attribute my adventurous nature to their continuous encouragement and support.I discovered scrapbooking more than 15 years ago when my children were much smaller but only recently have I returned to developing a more expressive style in my art. I still love my scrapbooking but I really like to stretch my creative rubber band and delve into new artistic territory. My recent passion has been with exploring eco art options and incorporating lots of recycled, re purposed and nature items into my art.
