Shabby Chic Art Journaling – Grace

This week I decided to do some art journaling for my DT project. My art journal style is very collage-based, so it’s a great way to use up bits and scraps!


Inspired by the AB Studio Shabby Love Symphony papers from my DT kit, I made a shabby chic-esque page. I started by adding some stencilling with the 13Arts Rose Stencil and some modelling paste. Then once that was dried, I went over the whole page with Impasto Paint in Dusty Rose, watering it down in places so it was easier to spread.

Next I added some ripped pieces of Kraft paper, and added some delicate flower stencilling on top of that with Prima Paper Paste.

Then I added lots of collaging elements: scraps from the Shabby Love Symphony paper pack, book pages, paper doily,  etc, and then some paper flowers in the empty corners.

For a centrepiece, I found this quote online, and wrote it on a scrap of Kraft cardstock with white fountain pen ink and a glass dip pen.
