Katzelkraft week on Art Journal

Ciao a tutti!
Today is Gio day and a new beautiful Art Journal page all about vintage fashion. 
Gio has incorporated a little booklet on her Art Journal page which I think is very effective. What do you think? 

Here are the details on how Gio made her pages:

For the background: I painted both pages using acrylic paint Americana Warm White. I spread some Dreamweaver Crackle paste with the help of a palette knife, along the borders and on some small areas. To give a distressed look and highlighted the crackelled parts with Distress Ink Pumice Stone, Spun Sugar and Antique Linen.

I stamped the chandelier and other details using Katzelkraft "Cage and Chandelier" with Archival ink Plum and Coffee. I added two pieces of ribbon to the pages with the help of a needle.
I cut out the text from a paper leftover and I glued down to the background.

For the leaflet: I protected  the main image of the leaflet from the paint with Artcoe blue masking fluid. I painted all around it using acrylic paint Americana Warm White. Once dried, I gently peeled off the masking fluid. I added some stamped details using the same plate from Katzelkraft and I wrote the journal all around the images using a brown pen.
I glued the leaflet to the page.

  1. I likethe lacing on the pages.

  2. I have lots of scrapbook-style journals but I've never done an art journal. These pages are really inspiring: the shabby chic/vintage style appeals to me more than the modern art journals I've seen; it seems more achievable for me. thank you.

  3. These are gorgeous pages and I love the little fold out book x

  4. Absolutely stunning. I love vintage and will certainly be trying it out.
    Thank you.
