UKS Art journey Step 6

This week Vicki gave us a great tutorial on using layers on our Art Journal pages and lots of other great advice on paints and inks.
These photos show my page in progress and the finished page.
The blank page is one of the Basic Grey papers that I used when I made my journal
First I used gesso on page.
Then I applied a thin coat of different coloured acrylic paints.
The next stage was to use the paints a little more intense colours in different areas.
Vicki had a great tip of using acrylic ink in a mini mister so that when you use another medium over it the layer would not be smudged or disappear. I sprayed through a circle stencil with the ink.
Here is my finished page.
I veered off the tutorial a little bit at the end!
Thanks for looking
