okay now that those details are over let’s get into how i created my page

i first started by layering some  texture paste through the stencil and let it dry.

i then rubbed some  distress ink directly onto the paste and then blending it with the blending tool. i repeated this throughout the whole page

then removing the cover of the ink spray i flicked some from the end of the straw thingmajig!

i added some more water and watched the magic begin. loving the effect on this texture paste !!!

once my page was completely dry i added some modeling paste through the butterfly collage stencil

so while my paste was drying i cut some butterflies out of a vintage book

and applied some  distress ink to them. i wasn’t sure yet which one i was going to use so did a few and figure i would add the extras to my diecut folders

i then decided to use this beauty of a quote direct to my page and how did i do that and get such a nice crisp image you ask??

why by using the stamp platform of course !! i love that i can put my art journal pages right in there and stamp!!!!

i then sewed around the outside of my page, added a few bits of torn vintage paper and for the final step i added some crackle glaze to bits of the page for the aged effect

and once again here you have it… my finished vintage art journal page for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #40!!!

I love everything about this, the soft subtle colours, the obvious rich textures, it reminds me of good quality chocolate for some odd reason.
