Art Journal Page - "Roots"

A few years ago, my mom gave me a photo album filled with vintage black and white photographs of my relatives.

So, I created an altered book dedicated to making art journal-type pages for these photos. The book is a vintage math book. I tore some pages out and then glued 2 or 3 pages together for sturdiness.
 

 
The only two requirements for my pages in this book is, I want the entire book to have a vintage-y feel and I want each page to have quite a bit of space for journaling. I plan on getting the story behind each photo (if my mom knows it) and adding it to the page.

 
 


This page has a tag that slips behind the photo that I plan to journal on all about the photo. Right now all I know is (I think) the man in the photo is my great grandfather. I want to not only include dates and locations, but if my mother knows a little story or antidote about the person in the photo, I want to include that as well.

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!
We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
