Help Me. . . ~ Mixed Media Art Journal Page

I'm back with another page in my music-inspired Art Journal and I've used the song Chandelier by Sia once again. This page was created using the colours in February's Lindy's Stamp Gang Colour Challenge. And, I think I may have a new favourite Lindy's colour - Caribbean Blue!
I started the page with a light coat of white gesso and then a basecoat of Caribbean Blue Flat Shot (mixed with water and Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid). I splattered the base colour with water to get the water-spotted look. Next, I used a Prima stencil and some Liquitex Glass Bead Texture Gel to do some masking on the pages. Once the masked areas had dried, I added the Bougainvillea Fuchsia spray to the outside edges of the pages – I love how the colours combined and gave an iridescent look to the masked areas! Finally, I did some random stamping with black and white inks and added the stamped quote to the page. Here are a couple of close-ups!

Here is Lindy's Stamp Gang February Colour Challenge Palette I used for this journal page: Lindy's Stamp Gang Products Used: Caribbean Blue Flat Shot and Bougainvillea Fuchsia Starburst Spray.
