Art Journaling in Progress

Servus, dear and true creative travellers!

If you remember the journal page I recently created for the actual challenge at Our Creative Corner, you may also have noticed how much I enjoyed using all those old and meaningful ephemera and scrap on it. If you don't know what I am talking about have a look here.

I actually had such a ball creating this page that I did another one! Now there are these two pages in my journal and I just love all the layers and the aged look and that they were made mainly from stuff that other people consider as trash. Well, we creative folk see the world with all the stuff in it with different eyes, I guess ;)

On my other - more "serious" - art blog "Von Pappe" you will find a more detailed post about the how-to, a lot of close ups and even a short "animation" that shows how the right page develloped throughout the process. So all those who have always wanted to peek over my shoulder and watch me creating the stuff I usually do: hop over and have a look! It isn't a video (I'm too shy honestly to do a video tutorial *blush), but it is a short animated slide show that lets you follow the process step by step. See what I added and in which order.

I would love it if you stopped by my other creative spot! And I will try to repay the visit! Promise!

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia xx

You make it look so easy and effortless. I love your art because you do things that are different. Your art pulls me in and makes me want to study it.
