Mixed Media Layers

I haven't worked on a journal page in ages - today is the day!

Using cheap acrylic craft paint - brush, dab, smear on



 Heavy acrylic paint applied with fingers


 Mark making with 9XXB pencil

 Stenciling and rubber stamping

 Image transfer using liquid matte medium - I find it helps to apply matte medium to the journal page as well as image - let dry completely - sprinkle with water and rub gently - once all paper is removed, apply more matte medium to image

This is as far as I got before running out of steam.  I plan to get back to this tomorrow.  It's going to be fun to see what happens next.

I love your use of color. Especially impressed with the transfer -- I often have a tough time with them. Nice.
