House on the hill. Journal Page Tutorial.

 Here is the final page.
I used Gesso, Acrylic Blue/Yellow and White. Stamps and Ink, Neo colors, magazine/newspaper images Gel medium and Glue.
 Gesso on the entire page.
 Blue/Yellow and White acrylic paint....
 and a credit card.
 Scraped a pattern in the wet paint using a wooden stick.
 Used the leftover paint on some newspaper ripouts.....
 and glued them on. White paint applied with card.
 Toned it all down with Gesso. Left to dry.
 Stamped using a green ink a bubble wrap stamp.
 Now, glued down three newspaper images, and
 more white paint, to connect them some...
 Blended my Neo Colors around the pictures, to make them more like part of the page.
 Used a second stamp, a leaf and Black Ink.
 Final coat of Gel Medium.
 Signiture and done.
 A section close up.

  1. Bravo girl, this is so pretty. I love it. I did just try a layered pain page and YIKES it's ugly. to much paint I think. so I am gessoing over it and going to try again.

    You're pages are so inspiring, I just love the flow of them. Thank you for showing me how to do this. I so appreciate that. I'm going over it again.. LOLOL I have Dsylexia and Dyscalcula so I have to read things a few times for it to actually sink in. Thank you Trine.

  2. I love this page. The colors, the movement of the leaves, and the house are all so lovely together. I like the freedom of it....it makes me smile when I look at it!

  3. Lovely, light and fresh. The cross hatching makes the background appear to be quilted. I love seeing your process...I write madly in my "how to" journal as I go through your pictures!

  4. This page is proof that simple is beautiful! Thank you for inspiring us, sweet Trine. I'm always interested in "how to's." Thank you for sharing your rich and oh, so lovely talents.
