Continuing my France Papillon theme I did a double page in the new journal I made at the weekend. First of all I watched this video. I'm not really known for doing exactly what the tutor says but I thought I would try.
First problem: despite buying all that new product at the weekend I hadn't bought white crackle - I bought Platinum Crackle so I used that instead. I did the layers as demonstrated in the video until I got to the clear crackle layer. I only had some old Crackle Medium so I used that instead. When I added the Luminarte Primary Elements they reacted together in an interesting way.
I carried on, adding white gesso.
Can you see the little fluffy bird?
Then the black gesso which was added and wiped off again.
Randomly stamped and splattered.
And some bits left over from the weekend added with a butterfly I found in my stash.
The thing you don't get from the photos is how these pages feel to the touch. The various layers of glaze and gesso has produced a beautiful leathery feel.
Thanks for stopping by.
