Journal Page for PA Challenge


Over on the PA blog they have a theme of gels and mediums. Lin Brown did a fab video incorporating Lindys Stampgang sprays and golden gloss medium. I didn't have either of these, so had to improvise. I used DA clear crackle paste through a diamond stencil onto the crunchy wax paper.


And did exactly the same on a journal page which already had some black paint on it.


As I've said, not got any of the sprays, or so I though, I found this Lindys smoky sapphire one in my stash and chose a Dylusions with mica in it.


This has had two coats of each colour, allowing drying in-between coats.


And exactly the same process on the journal page.


Then I tickled the raised areas with pewter treasure gold.


And the same for the crunchy waxed paper.


So I then went on to create this page, using some of the crunchy waxed paper at the bottom of the collage.

It's not actually as dark as it looks, but it is outside!
