Tell Me Your Dreams I’ll Keep Them Secret

Here is the link to today’s art journal page. 

 I like how this one came out. I started with a painted layer using my new Windsor & Newton Galleria deep turquoise, Pebeo cadmium green hue, and Liqutex basics phthalocyanine blue.  

 I then added layers of old book and dictionary pages, as well as some tissue paper by Tim Holtz. I then added more layers of the turquoise and green along with some Golden gesso.  

 Liquitex professional cadmium orange was added in small parts too.

I took some torn up dictionary pages and layered them down along with some Recollections ribbon and burlap from my stash. I stuck everything down with Golden soft matte gel medium.   

 I painted the chipboard key with more of the turquoise, gesso, and orange paint to make it look like it’s been rusted and patinaed over time. I also used Golden fluid acrylic raw umber on the sides of the key.  

 I finally added the journaling to a piece of scrap paper. I used Tim Holtz Distress Stray Stains in wild honey and vintagephoto to  colour the paper. The spatters over the page were added with   gesso and the vintage photo spray.  

 I hope you like it!
