Memories - Journal Page

Hello Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!
Shilpa here,
Couple of days back I shared with you my new journal and how I created it's vintage cover. If you have not seen it, here is the link- Layered Journal cover

And today, I created my first journal page in it. This is inspirational project as we have 'Memories' theme for this month's challenge.

I have used 'Faces' stamps from Artistic Stamper. They have vintage look and perfect for memories journal page.

I had fun playing with layers and texture. I started my first layer with book pages. And next layers were - washi tapes, design paper strips, canvas strips, lace. After this, I applied white crackle texture paste through Tim Holtz Star stencil.

I applied gesso at some places and when it dried I stamped with texture stamps and Ranger black Archival Ink. Next, I spritzed inks in various red, golden and brown colors, I dried them between each layer.

I created same texture on both sides of page.

Middle part of the page has various paper layers which I created with stamping, distressing, coloring. 

here are some of the close- ups......

Hope you liked my project, do let me know your views in comments.
Don't forget to join us for our monthly challenge to win beautiful Artistic stamper stamps.

Supplies used:

From my stash Washi tapes, gauze.
