Courage - Journal Entry

Good afternoon!! I've been having  lots of crafty fun with mixed media lately and today I have a journal page to share.

Gesso, 7 Dots Studio "Drive All Night" from the Dreamer collection, Chipboard shapes and frames, Gelatos, Glimmer Mist & Dylusions spray, Distress Inks; Pine Needles, Evergreen Bough, Mustard Seed & Vintage Photo, Clear embossing powder, chipboard butterflies, metal key charm, tag, chunky white enamel, alphabet stickers, Tim Holtz stamp, stencil, modeling paste, mod pogde, twine & Sharpie white paint pen.

For the background I added a thick layer of guesso and dried it off with my heat gun. I then spritzed it with various colours and layered on some of the 7 Dots papers with matt mod podge. Finally I used a script stencil and modelling paste to add the text.

To alter the frame and clock I used both Mustard Seed and Vintage photo distress inks and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. 

I did the same with the butterflies, with Pine Needles & Evergreen Bough distress inks and clear embossing powder. Then I added an outline with the Sharpie paint pen. 

I distressed the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo distress ink, stamped my sentiment with Archival black ink and melted some white chunk enamel onto it. Then I tied some packaging twine through the tag. 

The page is quite dimensional and has loads of different textures, which something I am working on for my pages and canvases.  The theme for the page was inspired by this month's emotion challenge over on the Mixed Media Place blog, which is Courage.
