Art Journaling with Juliet!

Art Journaling "Min trädgård" ("My Garden") by Ulrika Wandler

This is my very first take on Art Journaling! It was so fun making it, so I think I will work on this book some more.
I started with gluing together a couple of pages and then I primed it with gesso.

I used Glimmer Mist to make some background texture. I also used some stamps, and some Glitter Paste around the edges.

I have cut out pieces of the beautiful Juliet paper. I also added some butterfly diecuts made from Double Dot card stock.

I wrote in Swedish, but don't worry! I will give you the translation!
It is two quotes, and they go something like this: "He who has a garden and a library wants for nothing" (quote by Cicero) and "He who have planted a tree have not lived in vain".

BoBunny supplies:
Patterned Paper: Juliet / Amore
Double Dot: Khaki, Chiffon, Licorice Flourish
Stamps: Distressed Textures, It Is Written
Doilies: 4" small

  1. Love the brickwork paper and the edges of it and how it just blends in. Great job on these pages!!!

    1. Thank you so much, suzyb! :-)
      Art journaling are so much fun!

  2. Altering a book is something that has always interested me and seeing your lovely work makes me really want to try it.... but I'm not sure how to get started. What type of "book" did you use as a base? How did you pick the book?

    1. Thank you for your kind words!
      Actually, I used an old book, a novel, that I was pretty sire didn't have a high value. I think I bought it at a flea market or something. Good luck!
