Art Journaling in vintage books

Hello there 🙂

It’s Marta Turska – Grochocka here.  Today I would like to show you my art journal spread created in an old book.  I love to alter books and turn them into art journals, it’s very creative way to use old books!Printed pages are amazing backgrounds and I love to add mixed media touch to them.These pages were created using Drop Dead Diva Magical set, I used 3 colors from this set:


Sassy Sapphire – bright, vibrant teal with a silver shimmer;

Prima Donna Purple – that perfect purple with a silver shimmer;

Hi Maintenance Magenta – brilliant neon pink with a silver shimmer.

I prepared a video tutorial too!

Here are some details and close-ups, you can see how color goes through layers.  Colors are mixing together and they have beautiful shades – Magicals are really a drop of magic!

Pigment & water created a really cool pink mist, it’s delicate and gives a delicate shimmering.

I hope you liked my video, hope you’ll find something for yourself in it 🙂

Have a lovely day!

Thank You for stopping by!
