Don't hide in the shadows... an art journal page


Today I thought I'd show you an art journal page I did using some of the papers found in the June kit I received from Scrap'n with Flair, available here.

This art journal page was created using old book paper pasted into a hardcover book that I repurposed as an art journal. I put a layer of acrylic paint on, and some texture paste. Then I layered on some of the paper I had from the beautiful FabScraps kit. Then I stamped a chevron stamp over some areas, and onto the Prima flowers I had, and layered on some more paper, cardboard, inked up canvas and tags. I finished it up with some dew drops, scribbles and splashes of black ink.
Here's a close up of each of the page's clusters:

You can see some of the beautiful FabScrap papers here that add a vintage look to the page.

I distressed the journal spot, and added some of the beautiful crocheted lace that comes with the kit. Notice the beautiful damask paper at the bottom too.

I just love how these papers have their own distressed texture to them.
Make sure that you pick up the June FabScraps kit before they are sold out. They come with beautiful embellishments, like antique brass butterflies, flat back pearls and gems, lace and bling ribbon, and tons of gorgeous papers that have their own distressed, shabby texture to them. The kit is an a fabulous deal, so don't miss out.
