I haven’t shared the process for awhile so for today I decided to add a few pictures of the transformation the art journal page takes from beginning to end. This art journal is an old text book. I started by ripping up some beautiful Prima paper and gluing it to the book pages.
Then I topped it all with a light coat of gesso, making sure that I didn’t cover the patterned paper too much. Then it was time for some texture. I colored my modeling paste with some Perfect Pearls.
Using a stencil, I applied the colored modeling paste randomly to the page.
Now for the yummy bits and pieces. I added a variety of cutouts and ephemera. Here is a doily which was sprayed with ink to match my color scheme. I added a vintage label on top – sorry I don’t recall from what lovely paper pack it came from.
I added some sparkle with beads and mica flakes. Mine are from the Finnabair line at Prima.
I want to thank France Papillon for the inspiration. If you are familiar with France’s work, you will notice that the process and layout design here resembles hers. I encourage everyone to check out here Youtube channel by clicking on her name above. And if you like what you see, don’t forget to tell her. Thanks for stopping by!
