Playing with pages

I've finally finished the two pages I started at the last crop using the art journalling techniques I've been learning recently. This first page started out with gesso as a background and used some old diecut flowery card as a stencil with pink distress inks.

The chandelier is an image transfer from a picture from an old magazine using gel medium. I haven't tried this technique before and it worked so well. I'm looking forward to doing this again.

Here's my favourite new stamp again from Stampendous. This time I coloured it with watercolours.

I started my second page by collaging lots of paper ephemera onto the background. I painted over to mute the effect. I used foam and clear stamps with paint and a Prima paintable stamp with black ink.
