An art journal page

Hello friends! Wanted to share a simple art journal page here...
To make this journal spread, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents: Gesso, Whipped Spackle
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Mist Maker set
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Black Cherry, Blueberry, Cotton Candy
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen: Magenta
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pen: Black
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 10PK - Be Thankful
Others: old book, paint brush, diecutting system
And now, the steps to make the page:

Coat the pages with Gesso.
Apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife through diecut stencil. Let dry.

Rub Gelatos® at the top of the page, mist with water and let the colors drip down. Repeat on the left page.

Outline the stenciled words with black pen.

Write some more with Stamper's Big Brush pen on the left page to finish.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and work in your own art journal. And I'd love to see what you are creating. Please leave links to your art journal pages in the comments section :)
