Hi everyone, Mou here and here's my project. 



On this art journal page, I have used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP Aquarelles Watercolor pencils:
Die Cuts With A View The Corrugates Neutral Stack
Die Cuts With A View The Burlap Paper Stack
Die Cuts With A View The Corrugates Neutral Stack
Die Cuts With A View Adhesive Cork Stack
Die Cuts With A View The Woven Paper Stack
Die Cuts With A View The Adhesive Fabric Stack
Let me walk you through the steps.


Color the textured papers with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP Aquarelles Watercolor pencils and blend them with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Deluxe Waterbrush.


Cut out parts of the colored textured papers and some old book page.


Apply a thin coat of Gesso to the journal page. When dry, arrange textured paper pieces and book page. Attach the non-adhesive pieces with Gel Medium.


Rub some Cotton Candy Gelatos® at the top of the page and spray water with the misting bottle and let the color drip down.


Add details and journaling to the page with PITT Artist pen, Gelatos®, and Art GRIP Aquarelles Watercolor pencils. 
Now, hop on over to these blogs for more inspiration!
