Black art journal page for Prima guest spot

Hello :)
I'm sharing my new page for my Denim Journal I created for Prima
based on new Finnabair Art Recipe.
Our NEW Finnabair Art Recipe for September includes a wonderful mixture of sparkling
All of these products are absolutely amazing by themselves, but adding them together creates something even more special.

 I always enjoy working on black background - Black Gesso is my best friend! I used it to paint the whole page and added Gold Crackle Paste with the Honeycomb Stencil to add more texture. I used the Acrylic Paint-Opal Magic Blue-Gold to paint a few spots here and there with the Silicon Brush 1' and made splashes with Heavy White Gesso.


To embellish my page, I used a piece from the Vintage Center Mechanicals and some Mini Roman Numerals. I also created my own embellishment circles with a stamp from the Cling Stamps set - Tea on the Deck, velum paper and black embossing powder. 
As a center piece, I used a black feather which I painted with my favorite colors of Mica Powders. I sprayed some water on the feather and applied the powders with a paintbrush. As a final touch I spread Gold Leaf and Frosted Mica Flakes all over the cluster. I used the 3D Gloss Gel to attach them. When my page was dry, I added it into my Denim Journal.

Complexity and Simplicity


Happy September!
Our new challenge at Scraps N Pieces is up!

"Opposites Attract"

My art journal page is about Complexity and Simplicity.
I tried to include in one page two different styles...

For this project I used ColourArte products (Primary Elements, H2Os, Silks and Vivids) to color it
and Finnabair Art Basics Products (White Heavy Gesso and Modeling Paste), stencils and stamps.
Chipboard pieces by 2Crafty Chipboard.
You can find a journal like this at The Journal Shop.
The butterflies are handmade by me :)







So, I hope I see your creation at Scraps N Pieces blog, 
for a chance to win a beautiful collection by Crafty Impressions.


You can create any type of project as long as it's relative with our theme
 "Opposites Attract"
for example black-white, male-female, day-night, past-present, etc.
