Art Journal


I was so inspired at the Scrap weekend I attended recently by all the tallented artists around me, many of them were making projects with the tecnique I have used here to cover my Art Journal with. 
I just had to try it out too!! 
This is my second project using this tecnique and not the last i'm sure :O)
Here is the result.


Here is how the project began, I found a book at the local thrift shop, 
this one is all about good wine
(so i'll be sure to read up on some of the chapters 
before I gesso them and get down and arty! hehe)

Lucky I checked before I started applying the metal tape, 
cos the book was not only back to front but it was upside down too!! 
I had to carefully lift off the letters etc that I had already glued into place! 


I found two challenges that suit this project:

Charisma Card Challenge # 42 - Embossing (dry or wet)

Anything goes challenge blog  # 52 - To the letter!


Happy scrapping

  7. Å - så utrolig flott, Nina:) Journalen din ble helt nydelig, jeg likte så innmari godt det nærbildet du har "art" øverst(fantastisk!) og - det kunne bli headingen på Macaulay ARTs bloggen. Herlig at du kan studere litt om vin (og sang:) mens du driver med ditt journalarbeide inni boken og! Jeg har jo også vært hos brukthandelen - boken er klar (min er om Frankrike) - snart skal jeg også igang med sølvtape og ink. Herlig:) klem

    1. Hi Nikki,
      Thanks for your question.
      The metal tape is actually plumers tape!
      Its cheaper if you buy it from the hardware store, but it is also avalible now at hobby shops :O)
      Some people have used aliminum food wrap and glue, but it is alot thinner to work with and can easily tair.
      Hope this answer helps you?
      Have a nice weekend
      Nina x
