I would like to share with you all today
the first page of an art journal I am going to
put together myself,
it's going to be an interactive book that has
pockets, flaps & pull downs,
each page is going to be different.
(well that's what's in my mind, whether it will work is another thing) LOL
so I am happy to present to you page 1,
this page has a side tag pocket to pull out.
I thought I would post this a little differently
to see if it ends up with less writing than my normal posts,
I hope you don't mind.
I am going to list all the things I used
then show the pictures on how I made the background.
I used :-
1 A4 piece of card cut into 2 A5 pieces,
1 Manila tag size 8,
distress stains Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass,
Scattered Straw & Antique Linen,
Distress Ink Vintage Photo,
Wild Honey & Tumbled Glass,
Stamps I used are,
archival inks Sepia & jet black
Collage sheets to make up the figure etc.,
the phrase is printed out on the computer
a bind it all machine, & scraps of card
scrap of ribbon.
here's the background pictures.
smooshed stains onto a craft sheet
then dragged the card through them then dried with a heat tool
added the distress inks
splatted the stain to make the splats,
sprayed water through a stencil
then blotted it off with kitchen roll
finally I added the stamps
I stamped the birds then glued everything in place
hope you like it!
If anyone has any two part phrases, quotes or
jokes etc that would fit this style of journaling
please leave me a comment,
I would love to read them,
you never know they may just make it into the book (LOL)
have a creative day,
