Art Journal - Create Imagine Inspire

Hello everyone,

Sharing another art journal layout with you all. This art journal is inspired from Vicky's Style art journal. I enjoyed watching her how-to video. Loved the colors and elements she used in this page. 
For this page she has added a zipper to make even more interesting.

This was more than enough for me to get started. I started collecting stuff to start with.
I got this old zipper resting in my stash. I colored it with Pearl metalic acrylic color to make it more interesting.

The zipper was originally Blue.

Anyway I prepared my background by first covering all of it in diluted texture paste. Then I added Fabrica's Golden turmeric colour to whole layout with wet tissue papers.

Then I used Tim Holtz Burlap stencil all over the page with my texture paste.

I added some more Golden turmeric and dark brown color to make it look like old burlap piece.. But needless to say i totally failed :D

I tried fitting zipper. But I could not make it work, since I had not taken proper care while taking measurements. Luckily I got another zipper with a smaller slider which was a perfect fit.

I made some paper rulers to add to my page.
I glued down 3 paper strips on my platform. I added inch lines with the black marker.

then added numbers to rulers using Tim Holtz worn text stamps. These are my favorite. You must have noticed how messy I am. That platform looks terrible in picture.

I inked my rulers with Artistry inks - Dark wine and Old Parchment to make them look more vintage.

I sketched dress forms on different paper, colored them and fuzzy cut them .

Added both of these dress forms on my page. Cut the excess part with scissors.

I added other elements on the page. This sewing machine is stamped and and cut from a different paper. Used Tim holtz blueprint assortment stamps.

Made this little hanger using craft wire

I have colored inside of zipper with acrylic Black. Finally I added stitched border to whole layout with white gel pen. I splattered diluted white acrylic color with small brush to add some interest to the background.

Here are some pictures of final layout

Thank you all for visiting.
