Christy Riopel was problably most famous for her incredibly stunning art journals. Her ability to take a few white pieces of paper and turn them into a stunning work of art was truly a gift that amazed me. Journal Jump Offs A few years back Christy started a regular feature in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine called Journal Jump Off’s. In every other issue Christy taught an art journaling technique and then applied that technique to a scrapbook page or a card. Here is an example from the Spring 2016 issue of Creative ScrapbookerMagazine. In this issue Christy taught us the basic techniques for using stencils and Magenta Nuance powders while art journaling. The results are stunning. Christy always said her art journals were a place to play, to experiment with products and techniques and then apply what she discovered on your scrapbook layouts or cards. Even though Christy hated making cards…

I will never forget how excited Christy Riopel was for her very first Art Show. For weeks she created canvases filled with her fun loving mixed media style. So many of the techniques she practiced and taught in her art journals showed up on her one of kind canvases. I smile when I think of her creating in her studio. My daughter and I drove all the way to Calgary (a five hour drive) to attend. I am so grateful that I did. She didn’t know I was coming – the look on her face was PRICELESS when she saw me walk in.  From elephants to pandas to ballet slippers her booth was filled with her beautiful creations.  I had a very hard time deciding what to purchase. After a few cups of coffee I decided on a HUGE mixed media canvas of an elephant. This beautiful piece will forever…
