Art Journaling using Viva Las VegaStamps!

I'm here with a fun tutorial on creating beautiful faces in your art Journals using Stamps!
 Who says you have to be able to draw to art journal?

 Have a peak at the first video for a quick and easy tutorial on how I created the beautiful face below. 
With rubber stamps you can create a completely cohesive piece without knowing how to draw!

  2. I've managed to get the first video to play but am struggling now with the next. It's my system, not your video. Always difficult for me to get videos to play. I am quite fascinated with this technique! I just love how your pages turned out!
