Mixed media art journal – Travel

After a long holiday break I am back with another mixed media project!

mixed media art journal

I am working on many different types of art journals at the same time so today I am sharing one that has thick chipboard pages and spiral binding.

All the supplies are by Stamperia and I know my European audience is going to love this project since they have easy access to the supplies. I am also introducing the new “stone paper” which is a great product for mixed media especially for creating journal covers since it does not tear.

Watch the video where I demonstrate in detail how I made this mixed media journal cover and I am showing you in detail how to achieve the leather effect out of stone paper.

Here are some close ups on the stone paper so you can see how I made it look like leather!

    Oh, I wish we could get that stone paper (and all the other cool Stamperia goodies) here in the US! Love your page, and the way you add the finishing touches like keys and ink borders and bits of tags really makes it fabulous. Glad you had some time away, but glad to see you back—happy 2016!

    We have had that “stone” paper here in the States. It is sold at Michael’s or was when I got it. I distressed it and used it as the roof material for a 3D Halloween project. We now have a leather paper that you cannot rip. ScrapbookingMadeSimple carries it. I believe it is a Sizzix product. I will be using it for journall bindings and it comes in a few limited colors.

      Yes, they are all pretty much the same thing. Kraft-tex is another name you might find it.
