As I was looking at and reading about different pages, I saw someone mentioning doing 'five different layers' so I took my inspiration from that.
I had constructed a junk journal a couple of weeks ago- basically cutting up paper bags from different shops, using different off cuts of papers from other projects, as well as some patterned note pads I had. I put a bunch of these together using an easy binding which allows me to remove and re-add pages for ease of working on them.
I selected a two page spread and began to layer.
Layer one- glue on a piece of old wrapping paper.
Layer two- DesignIt pastes in gold and bronze through a large flower stencil.
Layer three- Sprinkle and spray Brushos in Terracotta, Bright Red, Yellow and Black.
Layer four- White gesso sparsely spread through a small flower stencil.
Layer five- text printed, cut out and glued.
And that's that! I really easy and effective way to break into art journaling
