For my second project for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge over at Country View Challenges I decided to make another art journal page, but this time for my square journal (15cm x 15cm). I already have some pages made and after another 4 or 5 pages I will bind all pages together - a little goal for 2022.
I cut my watercolour paper to size and used scraps from the pages of an old book. I adhered it with collage medium (you can find it in the shop here).
Now it was timer for some texture. I used a Memory Box stencil and spreat glittery DeLuxe Paste in two different colours randomly over the page.
When the paste was dry, I did some gilding with glue and gold foil. For more golden accents I used decoArt Extreme Sheen acrylic paint 24k gold for the edges of all paper layers - only delicate, but still visible.
Last I grabed my home made flowers, the tiny ones with a shimmery pearl in the center, and added them to the page.
The final step was to glue down some word, again stickers from finnabair.
I hope I could inspire you to join in with our challenge, it´s easy to add shine and shimmer to your work! Don´t forget to read the rules - you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
