make it happen - simple art journal page

Happy November everyone!
Today I'm sharing a super simple art journal page for ColourArte.

I had this cute small label 'make it happen' and found the perfect match colors in Twinkling H2Os.  So I used:
ColourArte products:
Other Supplies:
  • Finnabair stencil
  • Finnabair White heavy gesso
  • Finnabair Modeling Paste
  • Finnabair Stamp
  • StazOn ink jet black
  • 7Dots Studio label
  • washi tape
  • thread
First I found the right colors to match with the colors of the label and sprayed some water to activate them. I covered the hole page with white gesso and used the stencil with the modeling paste to create texture on the background.

When the modeling paste was dry, I glued the thread with the washi tape in order to create two different sections on the page. I sprayed some water and painted here and there with the H2Os watercolors with a paintbrush. I also made some splashes with the darker color 'Black Emerald'.
 When it was dry, I spread some powder of the three PE colors here and there and sprayed them with water. I let it dry.

 Last thing to do was to stamp the sentence and glue the label.
