I used lots of Claudine Hellmuth Studio products on this. I began by coating the pages with gesso. Then I attached some pieces of tissue paper with multi-medium. The wood veneer bike and chipboard hearts were also added with multi-medium, I added old letter stickers to the top (they were actually green glitter stickers from the dollar bin!) and then coated the entire page with more gesso. I used Claudine's paints with a little extra time mixed in to paint the pages - I'd add a bit of color then wipe it back off with my cloth. I love the muted look that gives!
This wood veneer bicycle was something Lisa gave me a while back - I finally used it! I painted it & coated it with Star Dust Stickles just for fun. I sorta have a thing for bling on my journal pages!
The "happy thoughts" is a Hero Arts stamp from the woodblock set of the same name - Happy Thoughts! I randomly stamped it with Dusty Concord distress ink & heat set it. You can see the texture from the tissue paper in this photo, too.
I love this Tweed Pattern stencil from Hero Arts - it's a fun detail in the background of the page.
I still have a lot to learn about mixed media techniques but it sure is fun to just go for it and play!
Thanks for stopping by,
