Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!
This week I’m bringing you an art journal I created for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using some of the papers and chipboard gears from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit along with papers, some embellishments, and mediums from my stash.
I absolutely loved the Sir Vagabond line from Stamperia, and I knew I’d have to make Sir Vagabond himself part of a cover as soon as I saw the paper pack! Check out my video to see how I put this art journal together.
For my pages I used some homemade tea dyed papers and some printed papers I’ve had for who knows how long! I also splattered the pages with some “Salvaged Patina” & “Aged Mahogany” Distress Oxide Sprays.
My art journal isn’t very think, so I only have two signatures in it. However, each signature has one sheet of the Stamperia paper included! The outer sheet for the first signature, and the center for the second signature.
On the front and back covers I used some heavy gel with two stencils for texture, added my Tres Jolie chipboard gears that I painted with “Steampunk Copper” Prima paint, and some roman numeral before adding the “Salvaged Patina” Distress Paint & some splatters. I backed Sir Vagabond with some chipboard and gave him a “new” moustache before adding him to the cover.
I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with items found in this month’s Cards, Tags, and More Kit!
Stay Crafty, Friends!
