Love Forever - Art Journal Page

Hello, hello!

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.

For my page I used watercolour paper as base for all my mixed media layers. And this is what I did:

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).
this is what I got.

To tone it down a bit, I painted the page with white Gesso (you can buy a lot of finnabair products in the shop here)

For the background colour I used tea this time! I only dabbed the teabag several times over the page and dried it with my heat tool. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result. To seal it, I carefully went over it with collage medium.

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.
I also distressed the edges with DI ground espresso and black soot.
My focal point is a sticker from finnabair´s photobooth. I layered it on different colored cardstock. The biggest one I punched at one edge with a EK punch from my stash.

I put everything together with double sided foam tape. For more vintage style I used some lace from my stash.
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.
Here are some close ups:

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!
