Beautiful journal cover; I like the softness of the pastel swirled background. Look in the bubbles; there's Mickey! Thanks for the inspiration.

Kathy Eddy

I am saddened this is over, too. Happy for Daisy though. Great page. Masking fluid, huh? Cool effect.

Annette Green

This is so great, and YES, I found the Mickey head. Such a great tribute to Daisy as a final farewell. I love your work and will contintue to follow.

Alison Bomber

Great techniques - and such clear explanations of how to achieve these gorgeous effects. I'm so sad that I've only just found the eclecticpaperie blog, and it seems to be disappearing! Thanks for the inspiration.


Wonderful page with one of my favorite quotes. Mickey, too!

Sad to see the E-Team end but I will continue to follow you and the other members. Your journal page turned out lovely and once I knew to look Mickey just popped right off the page! Wonderful technique. Your page is perfect for the quote. Love all the doodling.

Julie S

I wish my creativity went this well when I am underwhelmed. I think your page is fabulous! Best of luck to you.


Broni, as always you nail it. Beautiful page and Mickey too, ;-)

Sad to see the team go.. I know I will see your great work else where. Love the masking technique!!


Great techniques and a wonderful page! Love it!

Patti Jacobs

What a great page and yes, I found the Mickey Mouse head. I just love the E=team and have gotten a lot of good ideas from all of you. TFS and a chance to win a great give-a-way.

Queen Mary

Broni, this is so cool! I've never heard of masking fluid before! I love this whole idea and I'm sure my daughter will to! Beautiful and happy!


Love the lady! Will miss you all.

Lynn B.

It's so cool! I love the colors and your salute to the mouse.


Thank you for the great tutorial. Masking fluid is so cool. Mickey was fun to spot on your artwork.

Susan Tidwell

Love your page and the tutorial. Yep, saw Mickey! Good luck to all.

Mary Myers

What a wonderfully creative project!! So excited to learn a new technique! Thank you!
Thank you also for all the beautiful work you and the team have shared!!


Great colors! And I like the way your repeated the circles and half circle swirls in your project. Thanks for all the ideas you've shared.


I'm so sad that this is my first blog hop here & my last, just found this fab place too.

My daughter worked at Disneyland too, was one of the favorite times of her life.


Love the colors as well. I would have never thought to stamp the image on a book page. The words give the impression of ideas running around in her head. Cute!

Carol L

This is such a bittersweet blog hop, but life brings change and we have to make adjustments. I'm sure you're going to be just fine, and judging by this incredible layout, I'd say I'm right on the money! How creative to stamp this on a page and paint over it! What a cool and trendy look - complete with (yes I found it) the Mickey Silhouette :) NJ!


what a beautiful journal...not only did u fill my mind with ooohs and ahhhhs but alot of "so that'st how you do "that" too. this is my first(and last) blog hop with you girls so it is a little bit sad for me - i can only imagine how y'all must feel. i wish each of you the very best:)


Love the colors and thanks for the step-by-step! Will miss seeing the e-team but I'll continue to follow you. Thanks for your inspiration and for a chance at that fab prize.


Your page is just gorgeous! Love the saying it fits so well. I am sorry to see the end of the EP blog hops but I will continue to visit the blogs for inspiration.

Thanx so much for the tutorial!


This is a great page, loving the colours, just the right one for a girl to dream in

Belinda Basson

Always hard to say good bye. Lovely page.


Sad to see this challenge and eP go away but Daisy needs to do what Daisy needs to do. I envy her having her dream job in a really cool place! Love your page - it's amazing! I definitely am putting that stamp set on my shopping list. 'She' is beautiful and you've captured her essence. Yup, I spot MM!

Penny Douphinett

Wonderful project! I was underwhelmed by the She stamp set, but seeing your page - I now want it and have great idea. Thank you!

Sue O'Connell

This isn't the end it is a new begining of something exciting


Great project! I know you hate to have this dt end. I hate to see it myself. I always looked forward to seeing what you all create.


Gorgeous journal page! I'm sorry to see the end of Daisy's hops, but am glad to have been led to your beautiful works!

Changes are always hard and I will miss you folks, too. Love the page and yes I found Mickey.

Gladys R.

Your page is lovely. Like the doodling and yes, I
found Mickey.

karen Stephenson

I absolutely love what you did with this page. I have never used the masking medium so it amazed me when you erased it and reclaimed the image. lovely work.

Kim C.

You are very talented and I am sure you will pick up somehting else real soon. Loved the page and what a clever way to incorporate Daisy's new adventure.

I can definitely imagine that the finality of this one would affect your work but the end result is beautiful! I'll miss seeing the E-Team's work all together!


How clever is this page! So sorry to see the Hops come to an end but can still follow the team girls' blogs!!


Thanks for sharing your process. I have to try. I love the colors and everything you used to create some magic on your journal page.


Fabulous page, Broni. I've never heard of masking fluid - sounds like a great product.

Bonnie Ditto

Awesome! Love things done on printed paper.

Bonnie aka raduse

Sad to see these blog hops end. I've gotten some great inspiration from them even if I haven't left comments before. Love your Mickey in the bubbles and the quote you used. it's one of my favorites.

Marilyn B. Hughes

Awesome journal page! Wonderful stamp and you just taught me something. Yep, found old MM in the bubbles.


Stephanie Rodgers

This page is amazing! I wasn't sure where you were going with all those swirls of color, but I love it! My favorite part is her hair. And, yes, I found the 'hidden Mickey'.

Abby Helser

I found the hidden Mickey silhouette. Sadly, we will all be saying farewell to daisy. I really loved that page - the swirls were the best part!

Liz Vellali

Hidden mickey...very clever...love the techniques...and sad to say farewell to Daisy....

I did find Mickey on your page, which I LOVE! I'm sad that you guys are disbanding. waaaaaahhhhhh

cheryl c

So happy you will still have your blog, this page is another real gem! I really like how you reveal your technique. And yes, I saw Mickey right away. I often see Mickey in my garden - prickly pear pads, certain flowers and leaves when they lay just right....


Yes Broni ... I FOUND Mickey! I love your page, so amazing, the technique...humm that goes on my must try list! See another something new... that's what you girls did to me! I've drooled over artist art journal pages for a couple of years ( love Somerset Studio Magazine), now here I am creating my own pages!! Thank you E-Team !

Wanda H

A fabulous page!!!

Marita Summers

I'm sad to say this is my first time on this blog hop - but won't be my last on your blog. I too am a watercolor artist and loved your choice of colors mixed with doodles and stamping. Colors are sooo addicting! Will wish Daisy all the luck in the world on her new "journey". Thanks for your inspirational journal cover!


I have enjoyed these blog hops for a year or more now. I wish you all wonderful journey's from here. Thanks for sharing all you talents.


What a wonderful page. I found Mickey. I am sorry to see EP and this great design team go away. So glad we can still follow your blog.

Beth W

I see Mickey! What a great quote and I love your technique-it turned out fantastic. I am sad too-so many changes in my little crafty world this year.


This is fantastic Broni! I absolutely love that image and the printed paper you stamped her on. The texture and colors and your doodling as perfect! Love it!


WoW!! What a great page - I absolutely love it. Even though the E-Team is retiring, I sure hope you continue to display your talents on this blog. You do wonderful work and I'm sure there are other creative doors that will be opening for you. Good luck to you.

Cindy Lou

Great page, such soft wonderful colors, the bubbles and Mickey are too sweet! Will miss this blog hop and all of it's wonderful inspiration.

This is absolutely gorgeous hun :) xxx

Sandy Heringer

Oh wow, I love your journaling page and the quote. Have enjoyed all the inspiration from the Eteam.

Janet L.

What an awesome page! I love the colors and the thought, as well as finding dear MM hidden, too. I'll miss the E-Team and all that great creations that you gals make, but will still be checking your blog. Thanks so much for sharing your talents!


I'm sad to see the e-team end.
You made a fantastic project though. Thanks for the inspiration.

Sandy Duley

Love your project and have always loved this quote.


As I was reading along, I wasn't so sure how this would all turn out, but WOW! Your page is beautiful, your quote is great and Mickey is floating in the bubbles. You have an awesome eye for color and are a wonderful doodler. I'm sad that this art journal journey is over, but I may have to come back by and drool over your other creations now and then. Hope you have a beachy week!
