Art Journals & Embossing Paste!!

Once a month Kim & I (Lori) offer an incredibly fun class....Art Journalling.  Every month we explore different mediums, techniques, tools, and products.  We LOVE getting messy!!  This month's class is this coming Friday, September 27 @ 6pm and the focus is on Dreamweaver Embossing Paste

Here is a page from my journal that I am experimenting with.  I started creating a background with Dylusion Ink Sprays.  There was some white media of some kind on the bottom of the page.  I had obviously used these pages as a scrap page, wiping off my brush or fingers!  The sprays didn't cover the white up so I will just incorporate it into my page.  No mistakes, just creative opportunities!! 

After the pages were mostly dry, I started adding the embossing paste through a couple of different Crafters Workshop stencils.  I used an old credit card to scrape the paste over the stencil.

 I left the paste to dry overnight.  When I got up this morning I found that it had absorbed the colour from the Dylusion sprays.

I really like the texture and dimension it brought to my page but I think I liked it when it was white, at least on this page.  More contrast.  That is where I had to leave it!! I will be dry brushing on some gesso tonight to bring back some contrast.  Then add some stamps, journalling......
