I also used several of the new mediums, the Clear Gesso being my current fav!
I added a thin layer onto white cardstock because I knew I would be adding a good bit of water onto this page.
After the gesso dried, I used the thick Modeling Paste to stencil the rose from the 12×12, and the smaller one from the 6×6.
I used my watercolors to paint on top of just the modeling paste.
I was interested to see how the watercolor would react on just the portion with the paste, not all over like an Art Journal page…the paste created an uneven surface which provided lots of places for the paint to puddle and react.
That is what I love most about watercolor…having to let go enough to allow the paint to do what it’s own thing! I also added a very light wash of turquoise to the background.
Wanting to keep it the page light, I used a few Distress Inks in the lighter blue range to stencil the text, overlapping and using both sizes.
I finally added my photo using dimensional adhesive and a little chipboard sticker.
