Art Journal Page - Stamping and Coloring on bookpaper

I'm addicted to bookpaper for my mixed media projects.  I think using a bookpaper background makes a simple design a little more sophisticated.  It's a rich layer.  For this page, I used 4 papers from different sources and coated them with a little extra color in my Mod Podge.

I cut the bird out of pattern paper and then added more color with markers.  For the flowers I stamped them and hand drew the stems and leaves.  The clouds are filled in with one of my favorite mediums - white metallic paint.  It is cheap and adds so much to a page.

If you are looking for a variety of bookpaper, I have some packs in my Etsy shop - Lovely Layers Art.  I do ship internationally, just let me know where and I'll get a cost for you.

Here is the process video:

Thanks for visiting today.


  1. Hi,Lisa,
    I just discovered you while searching Youtube for a DIY tabbed minibook similar to Heidi Swapp's old foto stacker and am enjoying looking at your videos. I would love to have the original dimensions for the Heidi Swapp foto stacker. I believe you said the original used 14" paper, but that is ok because I have a few of those giant Martha Stewart papers I want to finally use..

    I would be most appreciative of your help and am including my email addy.

  2. I can highly recommend Lisa's book paper pack from her Etsy store. I got 2 packs and LOVE them both!
    And to re-iterate, I love the voice over in your art journaling videos
    Beautiful pages Lisa - I love all your hand drawn elements.

    1. Thank you and thank you for the Etsy review!
