An Art Journal! Websters Pages & Dusty Attic


I have been wanting to try making an art journal for a long time now and I finally gave it a go!  For me, Websters Pages and Dusty Attic are two companies that just go so well together!  So I used the Dusty Attic Arched Window Set DA#0569 and one of their title chippies (Art) DA0386 along with Websters Pages Western Romance Papers, WP Ribbon, WP Stamps (Beauty stamped on frame) and WP Postcards (birds).

I got my journal book at a local dollar store and other than the above items I added a bit of simple kitchen cheesecloth and some pearl strands.  I treated the DA frame with some cream color paint, brown chalk ink, some script/flourish stamping and finally coated it all with some Tim Holtz Rock Candy (crackle finish). Here are a few close-up pic's of the book.... 

Now I have somewhere to keep page ideas I come up with, little hand drawn sketches or even notes for my design team work.  My daughter saw this one and now wants me to make her one too....so you may see some more of these books pop up on my blog :)  ....Keep an eye out, hint hint, Dusty Attic and Websters Pages will be teaming up and sharing projects from their DT's in a few weeks time!
