Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

Today, I am sharing with you, how to create easy Art Journal page with Papericious Love in Paris collection.

I use old book as my one of the art journal. To start this journal spread, I adhered lovely damask design paper on the base with mod podge. As a primer I used Clear gesso onto the whole surface. 

When I was waiting for gesso to dry, I cut out tags, doily and other ephemera from the paper collection. I also chose stamped image of a couple as my focal point. 

Next layer on the base, is texture , which I created with light paste and stencil. Allowed it to dry completely. 

I roughly arranged photo and ephemera on the page to check, where exactly I'll need to add the colors.

I used Colour arte primary elements in pink,peach and sand colors to enhance the texture on the page..

 and here is finished journal spread....

you are liking it?

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to join us for our "Vintage" challenge this month.
