There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page. This page has a lot of layers and color and some unique ways to add words as well.   There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page First I created the background for this page with tissue papers, stamps and papers. I also added a little spraying to add a little color. Although most of the background is in neutral black and white. The thing that gives the background its texture and interest are the different patterns and sizes of writing and stamps.         Then I added an image of a boy looking at two images I created with stencils. One image is dark and the other is light. These two images are the focal point of the page that talks about two sides in each person. The final thing was to add the text. …

Today I want to share with you How to Create faux Leather Paper. I used this technique to create the pages in the TP mini album that I recently sold.     How to Create faux Leather Paper This fun project started one day as I realized how many TP rolls we throw away all the time. I really wanted to do something with them. I’ve seen TP mini albums before but I wanted to do something different and incorporate a little mixed media, techniques and messiness. I also wanted a different look for the pages. So I came up with this easy and fabulous technique! I transformed all TP rolls to pocket pages that look like leather and believe it or not kind of feel like leather too. For the technique I used you only need water, Glycerin …
