Hello Donna Downey fans, Fiona here with you today to share an art journal page I have created using Donna's lovely stencil "les Fluers" and her signature stamp "Wild Poppy Silhouette".
I created the idea based around some old scrapbook paper I had lying around. I wouldn't use this paper in a million years and Donna always says "You have to just use it" so that's what I'm doing over the next few weeks ... or years .. yeah years, it will probably take years to get through the stuff I've collected!
The video shows you how I incorporated it into my journal and then used the stencil and stamp to create a feature piece.
I really love the outcome and now I even really love that patterned paper.
Catch 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.
