"Doing what you love..." - Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone,


I've tried new technique here- created the whole background with oil pastels.  Lovely Clare had shown the tutorial here.
Firstly, I adhered die cut swirls and flourishes. Gessoed the page  and applied oil pastels.I used ombre blue. Again with heat gun and pastels created grungy effect. Added stamping with archival ink.Spritzed some shimmer. Finally attached flower heart and quote.

Sharing this page with,
Card making to art journaling
