1ST journal page

Well hello peeps, hope your having a great time and for my American friends, Happy 4th of July hope your having super fun.
I have been watching lots of  Youtube videos and have finally dipped my toe into mixed media/art journalling, so here goes ,
firstly I have found my Red smash book and decided this will be my start,

so I picked my pages and glued down some book pages in the finale picture you don't see this really so that was a lessoned learnt but Heay anything goes right !!! I then gesso'd the two pages twice used heat gun to fast forward to next part
I choose a metallic blue and green acrylic paint from Americano and covered my pages using a baby wipe to get good coverage it also helps to take paint away if you wanted more subtle look

First side

2nd page

Waiting for that to dry I made some Mushrooms and a little gnome, I then coloured them in with Daley-rowney inks and got them them ready to put on my pages with matte medium giving them a generous coating, I also went ahead and put some Tim Holtz brick stencil with modelling paste and used my gelato's to blend them into the page

I also went ahead and stamped some flower borders along the bottom as well as butterfly;s around the page using archival black ink oh I also done a border using Posca pens all round the edges black-white also stickle and a white highlighter pen here and there to blend all in, coloured the gnome with artiste pens

The end result came out better than expected for my 1'st entry, and dip into this new crafting world I have entered.
Here is the end result, I hope you have liked this feel free to comment good or bad

Huggles chicken thanx for looking x
