I have created a journal page based on 2 challenges: One Little Word Evoke and Simon Says stamp Faces.

I love adding texture to my pages and I decided to glue down some leftover pieces of muslin. After this was dry I went over it with several layers of white gesso. I used a palette knife to spread each layer around.

I then started adding layers of paint.  I added in some Distress and Stampendous Embossing powder along the edges of the fabric so it really popped off.

Next I used a stencil that I made a while ago to add in my face. I wanted the layers to still show through on the face so I used a wash of paint.

Lastly, I added in the quote with a black marker and highlighted it with a white pen.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have evoked inspiration.
