Welcome everyone! It’s Shari here with an art journal entry featuring one of my favorite humans… Melody. I was inspired to use this fall photograph from last year to make something I’ll cherish as I go through my journal.
One of the things I didn’t want to do is ruin the photo, it’s the only one I have. So, I created a flip page where the photo is attached to a piece of acetate to protect it. If you’re not inclined to use photographs in your journals, you could create the same flip feature with a favorite piece of art or sentimental keepsake.
I started with a watercolor page of my Dina Wakley Media Journal by collaging some scrap papers from the Capture Adventures pack from 49 and Market (Love this paper)!!. I added some washed of Distress Paint in Hickory Smoke and Vintage Photo with drips. Once it was dry, I used Tim Holtz Butterfly Design Tape to hold the flap in place and to add some layers.
Die cuts using Tonic Copper cardstock really set off the color tones of the photo and adds a nice sheen to my page.
Under the photo flip feature, I’ve included a journaling card from the Tim Holtz Pocket Cards, perfect for writing out the details of this special memory.
