Mixed media journal page

Hello! Playing around with some mixed media and created this journal page and thought I'd share it with you all while I'm stuck in meetings in San Diego.

As you can see there is a lot of texture going on in this! I started with a normal sized water color page and added some gesso to get things rolling.

Using stencils in the top right and lower left I got out the modeling paste. After it dried I used some spray inks to get the turquoise and brown look.

Used some die cuts along the way, some chip board, a stamp (bee) and added the imagine sticker. Lastly, I added some shine using gold mica powder on the texture that I wanted stand out.

I'm interested in mixed media to a point. The perfectionist in me thinks that it's missing something or just a plain old hot mess and I get a bit frustrated with it. I guess it's just time for me to relax and let the creativity flow! This page, I obviously liked or I wouldn't have shown it on my blog.

Thanks for dropping by and hope your being creative!

Absolutely delightful and well done! I with you, I like a little more control, I don't get it, but I sure like it when I do!

Oh I Like it a lot - I see so much of the mixed media and I am liking them more and more. I think this would be very nice framed and hung in a craft room!!!
