it's the final page...

in my gorgeous moleskin journal....

 started by gesso'ing the page and adding some torn book pages
Stencilled part of the mini specimens stencil in Mud Splat and part of the Coffee Splatch in Chutney.  Added some watered down Seaweed, and then








added grunge paste tinted with chutney through the squares stencil (came from Paris)  Gesso'd over the page again, then using Fern Green archival, added stamping with the Carabelle collaged hexagons (not sure of the translation from the name on the pack!) I didn't use a block for this, just rolled parts of the stamp onto areas of the background.
 

Gesso'd over that again, and then stamped the words from an Artistic Stamper set, and added some Prima flowers/leaf.  I added some Treasure Gold in Renaissance to the veins of the leaf, and some black rainbow drops to the flower centres.

Beautiful final page... love the neutrals and all that scrummy texture, and the AS words couldn't be bettered as the words to accompany a completed journal!
