Vicki equally loves scrapbooking, Junque Journaling, canvas art, card making, all paper crafting, and mixed media art. Scrapbook pages with a touch of mixed media artistry in bright, vibrant colors dominate her day-to-day creations, and she enjoys supplementing with mini books, practicing techniques in her Junque Journal and creating cards.
