Roben-Marie Smith Design Team Mini Blog Hop


Hi all! Thanks for hopping with us and I welcome you here!

Head to my Youtube channel to watch me play in my unPlanner with fun goodies by Roben-Marie Smith Art Pops and PaperBag Studios!

Read more blog hop info below, see my fellow team members' beautiful projects and to learn how you can win some fabulous prizes! :)

(I had it embedded in this blog post, but the page was loading too slowly. Hope this helps!)

In the video you will see:

1. The decorating of this pink and purple envelope using RM stamps.

2. The journaling on the ART POP card.

3. Decorating the doodled calendar.

To see me make the January calendar, visit me on Roben-Marie Smith's Youtube channel HERE.

4. See me make the February tab on the video as well.

Work in progress: Painted a Starbucks bag with gesso, and is ready for some artsy play.

Here I used a pallette knife technique, which was a prompt/lesson back in March, for the project I'm involved in called Life Documented 2018.
