Art Journal Page 204

Hi everyone!

I'm so so excited!!!! All my hard work trying to get the whites to actually appear white over the top of sprays has worked!!! So happy!

So I sprayed the page with yummy sprays, applied 5 coats of generic hair spray (fixative), applied a couple of coats of gel medium then clear gesso, sanded and applied another coat of clear gesso. Yes, it is a lot of work but if it actually does the trick, I'll do it! I can have multiple pages on the go and have them at the ready for later :)

So when the first page worked I was so excited I didn't even create a layout as such on the page, just a few white gesso sponged circles and some text written with a POSCA paint pen - just to see if it worked.

So then I started on a fresh page, applying the same process, then created a layout!
