Is it Monday again already? I’m afraid so, lovelies! So, in an effort to cheer us up, I have a new project for your viewing pleasure! Today I’m sharing a page in my Paper Doll Palace art journal that I have done up in my favorite Haute Mess acrylic paint colors! Being a shabby girl at heart, you know those colors are Couture Pink, Bad & Tatted, Grunge and Drop Dead Gorgeous, of course! Plus, I’ve loaded up the texture on this page with some white gesso, some of my hand made stencils and a handful of my favorite bits and bobs laying around my desk. This page is one of my favorites now, and I hope you like it! Be sure to read all the way to the end, as I have included a process video to show you how I put this all together, and as an added bonus, I show you a new technique I learned involving a magazine page, a stencil and a sanding block. Intrigued? I hope so. Let’s get to the eye candy, shall we?
Some Photos of the Final Page
You can’t get any shabbier than the beautiful combo of pink, blue and black & white in my opinion!
I’ve been hoarding that little black and white bag forever, waiting for just the right project to use it on. I have used it as my focal point on the page, and it holds a sweet little tag I made tucked inside, for a peek-a-boo effect!
Peek-a-boo! Here’s the tag making it’s debut! The inspiration for this page was a sermon I heard recently, reminding me that I am loved. Period. End of story. And so are you, friend. I hope this layout can serve as a reminder to you today, that you are absolutely loved and adored!
I’ve got texture and color for days on this spread!
Hugs and kisses, darling! Thanks so much for coming by and checking out my post today! Don’t forget to watch the video I made for you!
