' Follow your feelings' by Marta

Hello in September ;)
It's Marta here.
Today I wish to show you my art journal pages. I created my spread in an old book. You can purchase book like that in every second hand store. Pages are old and brownish which I love.
When you will look closer you will be able to see that I have used my book upside down :) I like this kind of effect.
I used images from beautiful paper pad BoBunny (Enchanted Garden).
I sticked the cut outs from the papers and created some sort of composition.

You can also see beautiful Petaloo Paper Doilies. It added extra dimention to the project.
The brown colour around the edges was created with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
I love how this turned out - like an old, rusted image.
Here is more phots as I could not limit myslef to only 2 or 3 as I loooved them all.
Those cute wording are from Cosmo Cricket - tiny text stickers.

Products used:

 Bo Bunny Paper Pad 6X6 36/Pkg Enchanted Garden Petaloo Darjeeling Paper Doilies 7 & 4.5 6/Pkg Craft Brown Lindy's Spray Purple Teal Lindy's Spray Bayou Boogie Gld

I hope you have enjoyed this creation.
My next inspiration will have a video tutorial ! I hope I can see you here again.
Sending you lots creative hugs,
Marta xx

  3. This is really gorgeous Marta the colours you used x

  4. It is wonderful, makes my heart sore!!!! the one I have started is a disappointment be the pages are not so good and it is a good book. Will look for one like you use. Go well my friend love from me.

    1. Pam :) I sometimes stick 2-3 pages together to make them thicker, old book have very delicate pages so you need to be careful but at the same time maybe the oldish feeling of the pages help on the project ? I don't know that as I was using only older books. Show me your page when you done :) xx

  5. Oh I love the idea of an old book and of course your AJP is just beautiful. Love how you made it look so easy.
