My Dusty Journal

Hi there and welcome to my blog! I'm back today with another art journal page for The Dusty Attic..

How cool is that stencilling? Dusty Attic's Webbings #2 Stencil is my fave stencil ever! It gives such an awesome textured, mottled effect.

I love using old books as my art journals. I thinly coat the pages with gesso first to allow the text to partially show through in places.

This chippie is also one of my faves. On this page I've coated it with Tinby Designs Metallic Melts then used it to tether my 'heartstrings' to!

I added Mountain Meadow paint randomly through a Circuit Stencil for gorgeous subtle splashes of colour on the background. I placed my journalling along the 'heartstrings'.

I tethered my 'heartstrings' to the tags around the photo of my son.

There's that Mini Heart Button again! There are very few projects that I've made lately where I haven't used this chippie! I've coated this, plus the other chippies, in Metallic Melts again.
