first art journal page

Hey blog readers! I have already shared this first page of my art journal in my video on youtube. Check it out here if you like. I have been working on my journal alot and I just love the easy, relaxing and messy creative outlet. If you havent already, I really recommend you give this a try!I used water colour and acrylic paints for the colour of this page. I also used some dictionary text and computer printed measuring tape in the background. for a collage effect.
Here I painted some old chipboard letters and sanded the edges to reveal the old colour. I used a couple vintage looking postage stickers and a ticket behind them.

The texture you see was created by gluing tulle onto the page. I also added some embossing powder and painted over it to blend it into the page.
