An Art Journaling Page

Hello friends!  
Vivian here to share an art journal page with you that uses Peachy Keen Stamps and Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I've been collaging a lot as of late and very much enjoying designing in the grungy sphere.  One of the papers with words on it resonated for me.  So I chose one of my favorite fibers from the RRR shop, Metallic String, Iridescent White (I'm also nuts about the gold!), to draw the eye there.

 The way this string sparkles perfectly highlights how precious today truly is.  On top of all my collaged pieces, I stamped with Peachy Keen PK-276 Flower Centers and PK-117 Picnic Tablecloth to create my composition...

And add texture...

I didn't feel like being brash with my journaling, so it's something you actually need to look for :-)

I love how easily collage can create so much texture and depth in mixed media projects.
