6 + step by step

Few more pages and I will be done with my art journal counting. 
The 6th page is with step by step pics.

I simply stuck some paper, fabric, canvas scraps using gel medium Everything which normally would be binned. I also stuck pieces of masking tape - love the texture of it.
I used Liquitex Gloss Gel, it was the only one on my shelf - I think it is time for shopping! - but I love it.

I applied a layer of gesso - Winsor&Newton White Gesso Primer. There is a few reasons why I like it but in this case - the gesso has nice consistency and it is easy to apply on the background like this.

And here it is! Pink! 
When the gesso was completely dry I applied a think layer of ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze - Pink Azalea. What can I say? I love it!

One more layer of ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze but this time Teal Zircon.

When the paints were dry I applied white acrylic paint in a few places.

Ok, now the fun bit. Tried it for the first time and I loooove the effect. I mixed LuminArte Primary Elements - Blushing Rose with DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze - and it worked! The crackles appeared as normal. And one more thing...because the Crackle Glaze is fluid there is a few options to applied it - smear or 'drop it' from brush.

No project without stamping!
I applied Silks on Stampotique stamp (France's design) and simply stamp it on my project. I really like stamping using paints or fluid inks (but about this another time ;))

No pink thread in the studio? No problem!

Silks + water = coloured thread
