Altered Art Journal

Hello everyone! I am back today with a fun altered art journal I created using the chipboard from this month's Bad Girls Couture kit. I love creating mini books/altered art journals. They give me a chance to just paint, get messy and have fun. When I first pulled the album out, I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do so I turned on some Taylor Swift, pulled out my paints, stickers, buttons, chipboard and just started painting some of the pages with the Glimmer Glam. The butterfly on the cover was a stamp that I stamped on to patterned paper then cut it out to use for the cover of my art journal. I cut the "art" sentiment from the Hambly vellum paper and glued it to the flair.

 

And for a few of the pages, I added white gesso so the paint really stood out... Then I painted the splattered chipboard pieces in pink. Wendy will be proud... I am normally not a pink person, but I like this shade of pink and it looks great with the teal!

 

 I glued several pieces of the splattered chipboard throughout the journal. Then I added a few stickers that were perfect for an art journal. And I love buttons... so I added a few of those as well to add a certain charm to my journal. Some pages were left blank so I can go back and write down my journey...

 

I love the lotto pages! Totally vintage and cool!

 





What do you think? Honestly, this journal is super simple to make once your pages are prepped! I just love the green, teal and pink with a touch of black. Thank you for visiting! Don't forget to add your projects to our gallery. We'd love to see what you create using this month's kit!
