Grow like a weed

 Hello Mixed Media friends!
Today I'm hosting the Mixed Media Place blog with a journal page!

 I love making pages with quotes or thoughts in my journal. I found this beautiful sentence in the 7 Dots Studio 'Nature Walk' collection GROW LIKE A WEED and that was my inspiration for this page.
I made a collage with scraps from a paper of the same collection and sealed them with Clear Gesso. Then I used some green and blue shades sprays to paint the background with a paintbrush. 

When it was dry  I decided to make a couple of circles using the cup of a Mica Powder as a template and a black permanent pen. I also made a smaller one and painted them all with blue shades of gelatos. I let it dry and then I used some stamps to create more interest on the background. I also used the Heavy White Gesso and a stencil here and there for more texture.

In order to alter the chipboard flower I used Heavy White Gesso to paint it and Lindy's Stamp Gang white spray to make it more shiny. When it was dry I spread some Black Glass Glitter on some spots and glued it with 3D Gloss Gel. I really like how it turned out! 

Then, I glued down the flower with 3D Gloss Gel and spread some Mica Powder (Bottle Green and Frozen Lake) here and there with a dry brush. I sprayed some water on these spots and let the magic spread all over the composition! After that, I used again the 3D Gloss Gel to glue some fabric and the sticker with the sentence. 

 My final touches are always some splashes with White and Black Gesso.
