Hold on Time - art journal page

Hello dear friends!
This is my new journal page I created for Finnabair CT.

I was keeping the canvas sheet of my Denim Journal since I had the journal and I was waiting for the big idea to come - maybe something special or even better - something different that usual...
Even though it has been a really long time since I created something in vintage style, I wasn't going for this style. I had in mind something colorful, as always, but during the process I decided to keep it in natural shades.

I started with cutting and tearing the canvas sheet and when I was done with the destroying procedure  -lol- I used the Sculpture Medium to secure the torn pieces.
 Here is how it looked before I added all the mediums and embellishments.

 When it was dry I used two shades of homemade sprays with Mica Powders, Rust and Purple, and sprayed them all over the page.

Then I cut a sheet of watercolor paper in the same size as the canvas sheet as I needed to cover the whole space under the holes.
I used Modeling paste with the Lace stencil to create texture and stamps with black ink.

To embellish my journal page I used a vintage photo from the Ephemera - Vintage Collectibles, a Mechanical Flower, Copper and Bronze Micro Beads, wire, Art Stones and Mini art stones, Screw Brads, Melange Pebbles, wire and a couple of chipboard pieces. I glued everything with 3D Matte Gel.

To paint my journal I used two shades of Art Alchemy Opal Magic Paints: Rose Gold and Violet Gold.
I also used the Rust Pastes on the metal embellishments to make the project look even more vintage.

Finnaly I used the Black Gesso to paint the chipboard tittle and made some splashes here and there to add a little bit of contrast.

Here is my video with all the process. I hope you will enjoy it :)
