United And True Art Journal Page

This art journal page started
with two sheets of 6 x 6 paper from the Farmhouse Fair Skies Paper Pad... both of which I really didn't like and a piece of old dictionary paper. I tore them in strips, glued them to my page and gave it the once over with watered-down gesso. 

I scraped on a little heavy-
weight gesso. Getting out the molding paste, I applied a layer using Crafters Workshop Tile Texture stencil. I then tinted some of the paste with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and put it down using CW Art Is stencil. I then sponged Brushed Corduroy around the page. Now my background was ready for some toppings.
I went through my scraps
and found a nice piece of My Minds Eye Heirloom and what was left of the dictionary paper I had used on the background. I sewed these together on my machine. I pulled a torn sheet of copy paper out of the trash can and cut a doily using the Alterations die... Distressed Doily. I sprayed it with Lindy's Starburst Clam Bake Beige.

A layer of Prima Music 
Sheet resist canvas distressed with Brushed Corduroy, a chipboard piece from the Fair Skies collection, a Graphic 45 Staples sticker butterfly, a heart cut from the My Minds Eye Heirloom collection and a rose trio applique. The banner sticker is from the Fair Skies collection topped with Recollections pearls. The sentiment is from the Idea-ology Seasonal Chitchat stickers pad. The lace, twine, seam binding and scrap of the French Lace paper doily are from my stash.


I trust you had a
relaxing weekend and are ready for another Monday. We awoke to the ground covered again with snow, but the day turned out quite beautiful and tonight we are back to a bare lawn and road.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, SO beautiful, Linda! Love the paste background and the stitching and all the little bits you've added. The coiled string is really fun. Love the pieces of doily, too. And seriously, great job transforming paper you didn't like into something amazing!
