To protect my page and have a rigidity (but flexible) I applied Clear Gesso. Let it dry. Add randomly Heavy Gesso White. Let it dry.
On the right page, I applied Ochre Oil Pastel then I rubbed the color. I did the same step in the left page (on the bottom).
I also used a watercolor pencil to have darken spots.
I sprayed water on my pages and let the water color run and drip.
Same process on the left page.
I continued on my background with old paper and Soft Gloss Gel.
I applied randomly soft Gloss Gel with the 3/4 paintbrush and glued the old paper, I pressed strongly the old paper on my background, waiting for a few minutes and remove the old paper.
I added Heavy gesso white and this step is done :)
Put on a palette, Oil Pastels Magenta & Red.
Add Orange & white colors and water.
Add on your Art Journal pages the "pink"obtained from the last step.
I played with water and the color, I dried it with a heat gun.
I randomly added stamp with Chalk ink Teak Wall.
Then a stamp with Oil Pastel Black .
I added water on the stamp to have a watercolor effect.
The background is done !

I used Salmon Pink and Black Oil Pastel and water to color the background and leaves.
I randomly cut papers and prepared embellishments : flowers, flowers from Trims, Paper clip…..
I added wash tape.

I chose stamps from Garden Fable, Epiphany and Finnabair Collections.

I really like the Vintage look I've done ! but something is missing !
Yes Gesso, this White Gesso is so easy to use, not too liquid, not too heavy, the best for all creations !
