"My art journal spread was inspired by the picture of a happy family, it's kind of magical, don't you think? I created their own intimate magical world free from other people and worries, all inspired by a wintery palette.
I used a few layers of White Gesso to cover fabric and metal elements. I used Limestone Stone Effect Paste, which created a really cool texture. Then I covered the stenciled Harlequin pattern with Gesso too - it helps to properly spread the paints and waxes later on." ~ Marta Turska-Grochocka
"The pattern created with the Limestone Effect Paste is thick, and it looks amazing when you accent it with paint or with ink, then it looks a bit like an old, time worn wall and I just love this effect! I used Sparks Acrylic Paint in a bit of unusual way - I've mixed it with water. This way, I could create lovely stains and a delicate watercolor effect - which is also very sparkly! You can see how it sparks on the edges of the lace, I really adore this shine!"
