Another Journal page

I poured out too much Jade paint when I made my MDF tag before, so dabbed it onto another journal page.
I scraped some spare crackle glaze randomly over the top and added Hint of Mint as my top colour.
 I added some stencilling using Peacoat (opaque variety) with the Tattered Lace stencil and some stamping (the criss cross hatch from JoFT36)
Sanded it back,
 Sealed the page with clear gesso
 stamped some JoFY flowers (JoFY35) and the dangling vines (JoDY33) and painted them with Bougainvillea and Lavender,(flowers) and Lavender (vines) used a Pitt pen in yellow for the dotty bits on the vines.
Leaves are painted with Hey Pesto.
stamped the 'hear the song' from JoFY33 down the side of the page.

That's it for today, going to watch the rest of the Golf!!

I love the colours. You have been a very busy lady today! I cooked, grocery shopped and washed but drew the line at ironing...I played yesterday...

PS: I am too tired to watch the golf...hubby is still in the lounge, dozing on and off through it...I did not list playing caddying for my son this mornings as one of today's chores earlier...the things a mom does!

This is gorgeous Helen. You have been busy. I'm so pleased I bought this set after umming and aahing as I would have been kicking myself after seeing your gorgeous inspiration

Great to see you using your new stash. Hmm...so you used your gesso as a sealer then and not a primer - interesting xxxx

Fantastic colours Helen and i like how you used the clear Gesso, it works really well as a sealant layer doesn't it! Beautiful pages :-)
