Junk Journal page

Hello Everyone,

I've journal page  today, to share with you. Many friends ask me, why do I make journal pages? :) Well, the answer is...first I love to!! And I try different techniques, new products, stamps, stencils, color mediums in my journal. Like, I used Prima Art Basics Soft gel for the for the first time and tried gel resist technique with inks. 

 This is double page journal. I followed Finnabair's instruction given in this video.

I started my pages like this,

For this junk journal pages, I've used my shopping bills as a base.  It was fun!! I adhered them with Modge Podge and applied coat of Gesso. Ohh yes!! you will  find some of my expenses there.

Further, I spritzed purple ink and water, stamped texture and butterflies, added vintage photo and applied Prima soft gel through stencil.

I created layers with various inks, and gel medium resisted it, created wonderful texture.
