These journal pages are all about my garden...the colors, the birds, the flowers, the colorful accessories, etc.
Add a generous puddle of gesso to your journal pages. Using a spatula, old gift card, etc. spread the gesso around, but leave lots of texture. Allow to dry thoroughly:
Add modeling paste through stencils (Nestled Circles, Retro Circles, X Marks the Spot) randomly across your pages. Again, allow to dry thoroughly:
Add more color with color mists and mist heavily with water. Tip your journal up, down, left and right to allow for lots of dribbles and again, dry thoroughly.
Time for more stenciling. Add graphite texture paste through stencils (Flutterby, Happy Flowers) and also use your spatula or finger to add bits randomly across the pages. Again, allow to dry. Then randomly add gesso across both pages and allow to dry.
