Mixed media collage art journal page

Hello, my friends! Another art journal page from me today and I decided to create a collage inspired by Linda Iversen's fabulous art at LivArtNow. I used an old book as an art journal just for fun :) and prepared the pages using black gesso. Then I applied my modeling paste through the checkers stencil. I used a lot of DS sprays and some Lindy's stamp gang sprays on the background areas covered with white gesso (I applied white gesso around the areas with checkers pattern to be able to use my spray paints). To add more texture I used my The Crafters Workshop stencil and my texture paste in green tone. I used some free printable images and Paper Whimsy girl image as well as stamped images  (Paper Artsy, Finnabair, Tim Holtz, La Blanche) for collaging. All images are sealed with Ranger Multi Matte Medium and I used my Faber Castell Pitt Artist Big Brush pens for shading.

  14. Wowwee! Branka!!! Yikes I can't think of words it's just gibberish going round my head searching for the right words - this has completely stopped the normal (?) functioning in my head. That is just how seriously damn fantabulous this is hun. I love it's depth and moodiness, the old vintage mages are such a perfect match for what you were creating. You hit the nail on EVERY head - LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!! and again LOVE it :) okay, going back up to drool some more - I could be here awhile :) Hugs, Georgie xx
