#Graphic45 Magic Masquerade art journal

I just finished this beautiful handmade art journal using Graphic 45 paper Magic Masquerade.  This paper is so inspiring.  I love the colors and the images.  So here are the photos of some of the pages.  Maybe this will give you some ideas for your own work.

The journal has 42 handmade pages and ties together with a blue satin ribbon.  I love using crystals , metallic paint, stencils and feathers in my work.

#Graphic45 A Ladies’ Diary art journal

I just love Graphic 45 paper.  It always inspires me to create new and beautiful art journals.  This is one that I just completed using the paper called A Ladies’ Diary.

Ladies diary Graphic 45 journal

I made this journal using large book binding rings so additional pages can be added.  It started as a vintage map atlas book that I took apart so I could use the covers.  After a lot of gesso, texture paste and spray paint I got to add the fun stuff.  So the crystals, feathers, ribbon roses and chain with charm all came next.

It has 41 pages that have been handmade using paper, cards and images from the Ladies Diary paper package and my vintage papers.  I really enjoyed making this journal and hope that someone special gets to use it.  So please enjoy these pictures and you might get some cool ideas for your own journals.  If you have any questions or comments just leave them below.

French paper kit from Paris

One of the joys of traveling and pet sitting is going to places I have always wanted to see.  Last year , at the end of pet sitting we got to spend 6 days in Paris on our way home.  There are such charming and interesting flea markets in the city.  I found these remarkable French book pages and postage stamps there. Here are 2 of my travel journals that I used these papers to make.blueparis 3silverParis 4French paper kit 6I brought them home with me and have been using them to make my own travel and art journals but there are too many for me to use.  So I thought I would put together a kit of French papers and ephemera to share and sell in my Etsy shop.  French paper kit 1 Here is the kit and it is filled with over 22 pages of vintage French book pages and other items from my French collection.  I hope it will inspire my creative friends to add a flavor of Paris to their journals or work.French paper kit 2French paper kit 3French paper kit 7French paper kitIf you are interested in this kit please see my Etsy store : https://www.etsy.com/shop/LDphotography.    Here is the addy for this listing; https://www.etsy.com/listing/673084840/french-paper-kit-junk-journal-vintage?ref=shop_home_active_1
