Ripping & Tearing

The crusade this month for the GPP Street Team is to rip our papers.


I took two of my blank journal pages & adhered hand torn pieces of patterned paper
from Brenda Walton's Maison paper range, by K & Company.


The journaling was typed up, printed out & ripped up.

The white paper was aged with Distress Ink (antique linen)
before adhering to the covered pages.




I added a couple of clear round dome stickers
& edged the pages with black ink.


My theme for this journal page spread is 4th July
& memories of that day.


Once I have completed a few more pages,
they will be bound together to form my handmade art journal.

  10. I wish to send my thanks to you all for visiting & for your valued comments.

    Creating journal pages is always a very personal process, both in their construction & in the meaning that they hold, so it's wonderful when others appreciate even a small part of them.

    Thank you

  23. I'm new to these crusades and art journaling in general, so your pages are really inspiring.

    I think you've done a great job of capturing July 4 memories in a unique way without feeling the need to use the traditional red, white, and blue color scheme. What a great way to think outside the box!
