Happy Monday y’all! For today’s inspire me Monday, I’m working on my vintage comic book page in my Haute Mess Journal.
I had the idea to have it look as if it was exploding, exposing the inside of a toy maker’s mind. So I got to work…splitting open the comic book paper, giving it a white wash and adding molding paste to the cardstock that was exposed under the comic book paper.
I then filled the center section with chipboard gears (these are from A Vintage Girl) that I added Haute Mess glass bead gel then painted and distressed with Haute Mess “Bad & Tatted”, “Distortion”, “C-Note” and “Kiss & Don’t” Tell paints.
I added Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter Stickers for the title.
I also added some A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter Stickers to the bottom to carry the toy maker theme.
I then distressed the entire page with a black stamp pad.
You can see the entire process in this process video. Check it out here!
