AAJS7 Sharon's Pages in Lisa's "Book Page Art" Journal

Hi Everyone!
I'm sharing my pages in Lisa's Journal - I just loved this theme of "Book Page Art" - I always use old book pages in my journal and other creations to add interest to the background!
I couldn't resist and "Alice in Wonderland" theme for my pages as I had recently bought an old "Alice" paperback novel for 50cents from a second hand book stand!!!!
I used pages from the book to cover the entire background - I trimmed the edges once it was all dry.
Next I used a wording type stencil and texture paste to the background and allowed to dry. Then I added ink sprays to each side and let dry.

I used more pages from the book to print the digi images on - before printing I used a spatula to add a thin layer of gesso to the pages so the wording was still visable but dulled off enough for the dig image to be most prominent. I coloured the digis with copic markers. I printed the Alice quotes on plain white card and cut out.

I adhered everything to the pages including some added washi tape. I just love the result - who doesn't love "Alice"???

Lisa I hope you like these pages!!!


  1. Love it Sharon, thanks so much!!! And yes, gotta love a bit of Alice! Your idea for printing on the book pages is great too. And very jealous that you found an old Alice book to use!!

  2. Love this! Great use of book text and theme.
