Art Journal – Priorities; recipe

Hello all,

Follow up from my post last night with the recipe for my Priorities Journal page.

1: Applied combination of Grumbacher  watercolors (Pink, Orange, Yellow) with spots of
Glimmer Mist (Apricot Jelly & Sunlight) and Simply Sheer Matte Mist (Red
Apple). Dry with heat tool
Layer 2: Stamped Words background image (by Heidi Swapp) with in Brown ink;
randomly covered entire journal page.
Layer 3: Applied Ranger Texture Paste over Dylusions Quote Bubbles stencil;
allow to dry. This created the raised pebble look on the page.
Layer 4: Applied layer of watered down acrylic paint (brown) and Glimmer Mist

Layer 5: Stamp Typewriter image (by Dear lizzy) onto tissue paper and colored

Then stamped word image (same as background) onto tissue paper, torn into
various sizes and adhered to journal page with glazing medium.
Layer 6: Adhered acrylic bird and postage mark images from Firefly ephemera
Layer 7: Splattered with watered down Black acrylic paint.  Dry with heat

Layer 8: Cut words out from old book and adhered to page with Mod Podge.  Age with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Ok, on to my  next project.
