Hello! I'm busting to share my art journal I made using Tracy Verdugo's papers from ArtStacks!
I was really inspired by the gorgeous women and hearts in Tracy's "Love Lives Here" pack. I got to thinking about women and their hearts and I realised I know so many women who use their love and their hearts in different ways. I wanted to journal about that.
I simply glued the pages together to make the journal and I stitched a contrasting piece of paper along the spine.
This is the cover of the journal:
The title on the second page was an obvious one for me. I think we all know people like this! I typed my titles. I love Tracy's colourful moons that I could use to decorate the pages.
I inserted a pocket and tag into the journal.
The next page is printed on translucent paper. I left it unadorned as I love the gorgeous colours and it allows us to partly see the next page which is arouses our curiosity.
Once we turn the page we can see the following page in detail:
The final page is the back cover of the book. I used a quote from Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel and I crocheted the 'chains'.
All the papers in this journal are from Tracy Verdugo's packs. The women, hearts and moons are from her Love Lives here pack:
Those gorgeous background papers, dripping with colour, are from her Under the Sea pack:
I hope this gives you some ideas how you can incorporate these stunning papers into your work!
