Art Journaling with Mintay Homemade: Grace

Today I have some shabby-chic style art journaling to share with you using the Mintay Homemade papers.

To see how these pages came together, you can watch the process video here: https://youtu.be/SSkZKwffa7M

The whole design was inspired by a leftover scrap of paper from one of my previous projects, of the door. The opening pages of this art journal also have a door as a focal point (you can see that project by clicking here), so I thought it would be nice if the opening and closing pages of this journal matched in a way with a similar theme.

Products Used in this project are:

Mintay Homemade Paper Pack

Trimmings Grab Bag/Bundle

Hobbilicious Baroque Stencil

Dress My Craft Rice Paper

Mintay Wings Book

Distress Oxide Spray Victorian Velvet

Prima Clear/Transparent Gesso

Prima 3D Gloss Gel

Shabby Chic Layout with Mintay Homemade – Grace

With the gorgeous Homemade papers from Mintay, I’ve created this shabby chic mixed media scrapbook layout.

There was supposed to be process video for this one, but unfortunately my camera had a moment, and decided not to film (without me realising), so I’ll give you a basic run down of what I did.

In the background I added a layer of clear gesso first, then added stencilling with modelling paste and paper paste, some stamping with Kaisercraft texture stamps, and then a little bit of colour with various distress oxides (all items will be linked at the bottom of this post).

The I added a layer of bundled up tulle (using a hot glue gin as it’s important that it dries quickly). Then lots of fussy cut flower clusters from the paper pack.

Next I added a little bit of lace here and there and then gorgeous paper flowers from one of the flower mixes from the shop. To finish I added flat back pearls, nuvo drops, and blue and white splatters, and a few Tim Holtz Clippings Stickers.

Mixed Media Purple Heart: Grace

This week I have created this mixed media purple heart using items from my September Design Team Kit.

I didn’t plan  for it to be a dark purple heart with a slight gothic/steampunk vibe – but that’s what I ended up with! With mixed media I often end up with something different to what I initially planned; I figure it out as I go!

This week I’ve created this art journal spread in the front pages of my P13 A5 Art Journal. I’m using this art journal for creating pages relating to…well, this very weird year we’re having! I thought this spread with the front door would be a great ‘opener’ for the journal.
