Leonie's Altered Bursts Journal Page with Oxide Background

I couldn't resist starting with a journal page when using these new stamps from Leonie Pujol.  She will be showing these and other sets off today at 8am and 12pm on Hochanda.
Add Weathered Wood Distress Oxide to the A4 blending mat, mist well with water and drag ink across the mat using a finger. Place a piece of stencil card cut to 8.5” x 8.5” into the ink and pick up. Dry thoroughly.
Pick up the remaining ink in the same way and dry thoroughly again. Clean off the blending mat.
Repeat the previous steps using Salty Ocean Distress Oxide.

Lay the Bursts frameless stencil over the background. Blend Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide through the stencil using a blending tool. Move the stencil and continue until the whole background is covered.
Add stamping using Versamark ink and the new altered bursts stamps. Heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Add further stamping using the same stamps and Forget-Me-Not Archival ink.
Seal the background using a thin layer of gel medium and dry thoroughly. Add a clipping from a magazine and seal.
Add shading around the image using Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens blended out with a Pergamano blending pen and nib.
To finish add several of Leonie’s word stickers to the page and go round the edges with a turquoise fine liner.

Love this! Was really interested to see how you built up the background. Fab colours too and the main image just pops!
