"Secret Gate " - Mixed media art Journal page

Hello Everyone,

I love to use Itsy Bitsy's Chipboard die cuts in my Mixed media art journals. I bought these 'gate images' and today they fit perfectly on my page.

As a child I always wanted to be an artist and it didn't happen that time, and I never revealed about it. I used to be in dilemma, whether I should choose the road which was obvious or should I cross my secret gate of 'Art'. And  that's - "A new road or secret gate"  is all about...

Playing along at Journal Journey's - Dawn. Theme of the month - Childhood.

"Birds" - Tag

Hello Everyone,

There is new challenge for Tags- Tag Along, by Mandy. And this week's theme is Bird.

I've tried new technique  here. After creating background texture with modeling paste through stencil, I've stamped on it too. You will find some small flowers and text on that. After applying colours on tag, I sand it back to reveal the fine detail of paint trapped in the stamped texture. I have used distress paints- salty ocean, seedless preserves, antique linen and bundled sage. 
Leandra had shown this technique at Paper Artsy.

Tag along has  some fantastic entries of Tag with birds, stop by there...
