Art Journal – Get Lost in a Book

Today I am sharing an art journal using the September card kit by SimonSaysStamp. The kit is supposed to be for cardmakers but the supplies can be used to create journal pages as well.

The papers included are just gorgeous and the moment I opened it up I knew what I wanted to do with them. So here is my layout:

art journal book

The old library drawers and the vintage images, as well as the awesome stickers just made the layout super easy to create. If you love books like I do, I am sure you’ll be able to create something similar in no time.

Today’s layout is very busy and colorful and there are so many things to look at, if you take the journal on your hands. One of my favorite clusters was the notepad pages stacked and embellished.

And don’t you just love that patterned paper with the drawers?

    You never cease to amaze me Vicki. Loved this idea to use card kit for an art journal entry. I so love how your imagination just seems to run while. Lol. You have this ability to take inspiration from the kits and bring to life a sign from every day living…. and today is a one from a library it seems. So impressed with those drawers or filing cabinet. The array of bright and happy colours makes this layout so impressive. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Hugs – Dana

      Sorry Vicky, but this comment was meant for your Get Lost In A Book Art Journal Page and I am thinking that I placed it in the wrong post section. It was meant for this one okay. Hope your doing great sweetie.
