Journal Page

I've been doing more with acrylic paint gesso and sprays recently both on canvas and in journals. Here's a page from today.

I started by gessoing and spraying with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist, and while still wet mixing in the  spray. I waited for this to completely dry. I then put the page face down on my craft sheet where there was some spray left from another project. I added tissue tape, which i coloured with Versa Colour ink pad and gold acrylic paint.
I stamped with stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs Carnival Dream set- the couple and stars.
I then sprayed some more, added a big streak of Arcylic paint which I dry heated with my heat tool, to create bubbles.
I then coloured and added my words with pens and markers.

I'm entering this page into the following challenges:

Paint it at Simon Says Stamp and Show

and Anything Goes over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where it's their 1st birthday :-)

Wow...Love.Love.Love it!
sooo much texture and colour! Brilliant journalling. Thanks for the detailed description of what you did (I loved the crater effect in the gold paint...and it was by using a heat tool!). The mist and sprays I've used in a future challenge so please don't think that I copied lol.
Thanks for joining in our anything goes challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges
