1. Working in a random fashion build layers on your art journal page by adhering vintage book text and scraps of handmade paper. Create texture with texture paste and drywall tape, a stencil and sequin waste. Apply a wash of Gesso
before applying Twinkling H20s. Work loosely allowing the Twinkling H20s to drip on the page. Build up several layers, heat setting between each layer. Include journaling at this stage. My journaling related to the sentiment I would be including. Randomly stamp script from Little Dreams Stamp Set
with Memento Rich Cocoa.
2. Apply Gesso
to book text followed by a light wash of Twinkling H20s. With Versafine Vintage Sepia stamp one of the Etched Flowers. Edge with Distress Paint Victorian Velvet and embellish with fragment of handmade paper and USArt Quest Mica tile. Adhere to journal page.
3. Stamp sentiment from Prague Collection Vol 2 Stamp Set
with Memento Rich Coco onto scrap of book text. Tear around words so only “but a matter of moments” remains. Edge with Distress Paint. Staple a fragment of mica tile before adhering to the page.
4. Apply Distress Paint to an old lid and randomly stamp onto the page.
5. Embellish and create extra texture by adhering fragments of bark and various pre-prepared papers (painted with Gesso/Twinkling H20s/Caran d’ache NeoColor II watersoluble crayons)
