Altered Anthropologie Catalog Art Journaling + Doodling Tutorial

I just about flipped out when the latest Anthropologie catalog arrived, didn't you? So, so beautifully styled and shot. I loved it so much and I felt that the cover and interior pages were just begging to be altered and turned into a journal. And that's exactly what I did. Here's how I embellished the cover.

Jenny DohThe cover really didn't need much to cover up but I wanted to cover the catalog name so I used some white gesso to do that.

I love how it looks like the frame is dimensional and popping off the page.

The apple in the photo inspired me to get one of my favorite stencils and add more red circles. And a bit of washi tape to balance things out.

I'm gonna use the entire catalog as a journal. Love it.

Anthropologie's catalog is one of my favorite sources for interesting backgrounds for visual journal pages. Shhh...now Anthro is going to figure out why so many of their catalog requests are from artist :).

I have been thinking about doing the same and it tickles me to see your altered cover! Proud of you for taking the time to follow your urge and that inspires me to do the same.

This is thee most beautiful creation or re-creation I have ever ever seen in this type of art... I so admire your work... Wow.
