Exciting stuff!

You have until September 11th at 5:00 p.m. to enter.

For today’s project I’m using Roben-Marie Smith’s latest collection: 100 Days Art pops Collection.  You can purchase your own here. 

What’s an ArtPops Card you ask? Well, I’m so glad you asked!

ART POPS™ are mixed media art pieces inspired by the whimsical, saturated pages of Roben-Marie’s art journals. ART POPS™ provide bold and fanciful POPS of COLOR for your favorite projects including Project Life, Mail Art, Art Journaling and much more. Rock your world with ART POPS™!

Using mine, I made a tag art journal. I love using the Art Pop’s cards because the work is half done for you already. 😉


For this Tag Art Journal,  I took 5 tags plus one Art Pops card.


And I basically start adding layers to them. One of my favorite techniques is layering on white acrylic paint, or gesso. In this case I used Titanium White from Liquitex. And then placing a stencil on top and wiping away the excess. It leaves you with a very cool negative of the stencil.



I did this technique to some of the tags, the other tags I just slapped on some Titanium White.


Using two Art Pops cards, one for the cover of the tag journal and one to put in the middle. I used one of my already made tags as a template.


We’ll come back to this one in a bit. Back to art journaling the rest of the tags.

Some I added book text to.


Some I added stamping. This is from the Art Fusion Rubber Stamp Set.


Now going back to the tag I made from the Art Pops card, I used an Art Pops Sticker Shape and cut it in half. To add visual interest I attached half to the top of the Art Pops tag.  (As you can see I also added a photo to it and stitched around it.)




Then I just went through and added paint, stitching, doodles, Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers, and more Art Pops cards/sticker shapes.


To attach the tags all together, I simply tape them together using Washi Tape.



To make the little tab I closed it all with, I used a leftover piece of the an Art Pops card. Nothing goes to waste!


I glued it to the last tag in the booklet and folded it around to the front. I then punched a hole in it and attached some ribbon.


I think it turned out pretty cute and those Art Pops products were the perfect addition.

Be sure to “hop” (Ha! Get it? Hop! Okay then, sorry) on over to my other Design Team mates to see their projects and for more chances to win – links above.

  2. Love so much about your work. I am inspired by your stitching (I own 3 sewing machines, you would think I could get one of them dedicated to art projects!)


  3. So pretty! Love your technique of wiping the gesso away from the stencil to leave a negative image. I always forget techniques to try and this is a great reminder for me.


  4. I love your tag journal, been looking for ideas, I have many many tags, inspired to make some artful journals with them. I hope I’m one of the winners!
