January's GINA AHRENS Design Team Challenge

How nervous was I? ! But, I managed to get through my very first Gina Ahrens Design Team Challenge for 2017. January's challenge prompt was 'borders;. and I gave this very much thought as to what I could bring to the table to make my video interesting as well as useful while using Gina's mixed media products.

So after a lot more thought on the challenge, I decided on using Gina Ahren's stamps as a template to create bordered pages in one of my art journals for 2017. Once the idea was there, the rest of the process was rather easy.

Using the petal shape from Gina's stamp I stamped onto a piece of recycled cardboard and then cut that shape out. My first template was created. I then used the template to draw straight onto my journal page to which I then proceeded to cut the design out.

And wholla! my first bordered art journal page....
The above picture shows the stamps I used and cut the template from to then use as a border for my art journal. Below is my youtube video showing the actual process.
