Be BRAVE! by Emma Zappone

Hello, Hello!
Hope you are all having an amazing long weekend so far!
And the weekend is only going to ramp up with the Cybercrop tomorrow! 
Today I'm sharing an A4 layout/journal page with you. And I have gone a little grungy.

I have wanted to use this image i found on Pinterest for sooooo long. And finally today's project was calling for it! 
My first layer started with a sheet from Art by Marlenes Collage paper - artsy Arabia. I made it a little stronger by adhering it to a sheet of cardstock. Then using Dylusions Glorious Blooms stamps, stamped on smooth white cardstock and coloured them in using Copic markers.

Then I felt I needed to add a little texture. So I stapled some old book paper and muslin off to the side that my final composition was going to go.

Now came the colour an that grunge feel. Using Dylusions acrylic paints and a palette knife I started spreading colours around the page along with Black Gesso. The colours I chose to match the background were - Vibrant Turquoise, Funky Fuchsia and Peony Blush.

It still needed another lot of layers. So using a number stencil by Darkroom Door and archival Black ink and a blending tool I added stencilling. Then stamped a triangle stamp from Darkroom Door as well.

Here are more close ups of the finished project. 

The title consists of  Ideology Quote chips and Small talk stickers. And the big roman numerals are resin moulds that are primed with black Gesso and then I rubbed a selection of  Waxs over them.

I had so much fun creating this page and I finally felt rather free in my creative space. Yes my hands were messy, but it felt oh so good!

I hope you get some creative time this week. Be sure to look out for the Cybercrop Tomorrow for lots of fun.

I will catch you all soon.
