Adventures in Art Journaling - Part Two

Hello again,

I hope you enjoyed my last post about my first art journal. Today I will show you my first page.

I used more paper than paint on this 1st page. The flower pots are from a sheet of wrapping paper.
You can see some of my painted & stamped book jacket to the left.
The bible is a 3D sticker. Isn't it sweet?
This 1st page originally had a library pocket for 'due back' cards. I removed it, took it apart and made my own pattern for library pockets. This is one that I made.
The left side has a stamped sentiment with a die cut negative frame.
The eye is an original artwork ATC by me. I stenciled the tag (below the eye) with texture paste, which I embossed with copper embossing powder. Then I distressed it with inks.
My tags for the library pocket I made.
I made this tag some time ago and was just waiting for the opportunity to use it.
A simple tag with circle tag attached. The circle tag was stenciled with texture paste. I painted it with copper metallic acrylic paint and Almost Navy SU ink.

Thanks for sharing this new journey with me. It is always fun to travel with friends.

Blessing hugs,

PS - In my next post I will show you how I made my library pocket.

Your art journal page is a delight to look at. So many elements each a little master piece in itself. I love the ATC eye, my favourite part of the page. Thank you for showing us over at Craft My Life challenge. Hugs Mrs A. (DT.)
