Fearless - Just for Fun Journal Page

Sometimes it's fun to drag out an unfinished journal page
and add to it to make it better.

Here I had a few bright colors sprayed onto a page in a 
large journal, and that was all.

So I got out my stencils, archival inks, and light paste and added some
more depth and layers.

 The picture from a magazine is glued on and painted over with black.
I added some more marks with pens and inks.

She looked like a Conquering Princess Warrior, so I 
gave her a crown with Finnabair mini beads and glass glitter, 
and a title of FEARLESS using ArtAlchemy Opal Magic
and Metallique Paints. 

I used clear gesso over the picture to seal and make it able
to take more paints and inks.

Her crown/flourish and the word are laser-cut chipboard
from Retro Cafe Art.

I used several different designers stencils in the layers that 
created a mottled background of color.

You can see how the Light Paste from Finnabair and Doily stencil
 turns an opaque white that I really liked for contrast.

Hope you enjoy this page, and have a great week!
