''Boundless & Infinite" Art Journal Page - 7 Dots Studio Thoughts Keeper Collection







Hello there!  Today I am sharing my February project for 7 Dots Studio.
As I had already created a layout for my Tutorial I decided to do an AJ page.


I used the new collection Thoughts Keeper collection which you can see HERE.


To create this page I used gel medium to collage together various off-cut pieces
 of paper & tags from the collection then used gesso, together with an old 
credit card, over the top, to add more texture & mute down all the colours.
  This always works well when you want to blend things together tastefully.


To make my title the focal point & draw the eye to the centre of the page
 I sprayed some ochre mist, let it settle deep into the texture 
(so don't use a heat gun or that will spread it around unless
 you are extremely careful & gentle).  

Lastly I adhered my hand-drawn & cut title & black inked butterflies
 from 2Crafty Chipboard, then splattered diagonally across the page
 with black ink, sealed everything with gel medium & sprinkled
 on some Prima MICA while it was still wet!  

I love the shine it gives, just like a bit of treasured fairy dust!!
It was a stress free bit of pure creative therapy!
