Art journal layout – style

After popular demand today I am sharing another art journal layout!

I have been wanting to use this dress form on one of my pages for quite some time now and I finally paired beautifully with this quote!

To make it look even more realistic and add more texture on my layout I used canvas to cover the main part of the dress form.

For my background I used many of my favorite techniques, such as tissue paper, distress paints, embossing and shading with big brush markers. But One of my favorite parts of this layout is the zipper!

And although it looks complicated it was actually too simple to attach it. I am really happy with how the page came out and I love the focal points as much as the background.

    The zipper is amazing! What a creative idea. I have lots of old sewing patterns from back when I used to make my own clothes. Those could be used in place of the tissue paper–you’ve got my creative juices flowing–Thanks!

    I remain in awe! You put a zipper on your page! Wow, what a nice touch.

    Appreciate seeing Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet in action. They aren’t colours I’ve used before. You paired it so nicely with the Wild Honey. Love it. The trick with the Black Soot and Antiqued Bronze is genius.

  19. Very neat!! What made you decide to not make the zipper completely work? So you could use it as an interactive piece on your page. I love it anyways and you always inspire me!!! Some day I will show what little bit I have in my Mixed Media Journal but I do what to do a lot more!!! So for now I will just keep watching you do yours and DREAM!!

      oops – I clicked post too soon … I meant to say page!!!
      LOVE how EASY you made it to insert the zip and think it would be FUN to add one as a feature to layouts, maybe even a card … going to check out just how small zippers can be 🙂

    Your videos are always inspiring and amazing. The zipper is such a fabulous addition to the page. A perfect touch! (I know you didn’t use the Ranger glaze medium on this page, but when you DO use it to make the Distress inks permanent, what adhesive do you think holds best? I used some of the glaze and had to use staples to hold the embellishments on the page. Any advice would be most welcome.) Thanks for all your wonderful posts and videos. Keep inspiring the rest of us. Thank you.
