Alice Art Journal Page - "Who are you?" ~ Scraps of Darkness

Today, I'm sharing an art journal page created in my new Art Journal that came in the Scraps of Darkness March "Radioactive" Kit - Creativity Add-On. I'm planning to do a series of "Alice" Art Journal pages - so I decided to kick it off with this one, entitled "Who are you?". If you are familiar with the Alice in Wonderland, you'll recognize this as a quote from the book - by the caterpillar to Alice.
I started with a sheet of watercolor paper cut to 5 x 7.5 in. to fit inside the Art Journal. I fussy cut the strips out of the Studio Calico Lemon Lush Analytics paper from the kit and randomly layered the strips on the base page. Then i added a light coat of heavy gesso using a credit card. Next, I added the fussy-cut Alice in Wonderland image using heavy gel medium (this works great as a glue/sealer). I used the Balzer Bits mask  by The Crafter's Workshop that came in the Creativity Add-on with some Art Anthology Velvet Dimensional paint in Limeaid. Once the paint had dried I used some Inka Gold in Cobalt Blue to highlight the stenciled area and randomly rubbed some around the edges of the page as well. I used the white foam letters from the kit and coloured them with Inka Gold in Haematite. Finally, I used the small feather stamps from the Creativity Add-On with some Lindy's Stamp Ganag Embossing Powder in Midnight Sapphire. I had so much fun experimenting and playing with the different art mediums creating this page! Here are some close-ups!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
