Back to Nature art journal spread

Hi everyone,

I'm back with a new art journal spread made for a Vintage Journey where the challenge is "Back to Nature". That's my favorite theme, and had so much fun creating this spread.

I started with a double sheet of the old book that I used last time and applied with a old gift card 3 colors of Opal Magic Paint: Voilet-Green, Green-Gold and Rose-Gold. Such a fun effect. Then I applied with the Sunset Sunrise stencil some Texture Paste and went over it with the same Opal Paint colors when it was dry. This time with a Silicon Brush.


I went to a craft fair last week and found Nuvo Shimmer Powders, and I had to try them. I really like Infusions, because of the walnut stain pigment in it, but sometimes it gets to brown. So a mica pigment would be perfect to complement each other. And I believe I was right, because I love the outcome.



Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Fabulous drama in the lights and darks here - you always use black so well - I'm a little afraid of it! - and I love those inky splodges against the book text in the background.
