“Enjoy the Journey” by Moira Gilowey

I am so excited to share my second project as Guest Designer for 13 Arts. I created this single page layout using papers from Down Under and Victoriana collections. I loved the bright vibrant colour of the yellow paper from Down Under and it suited the muted tones from the Victoriana paper as well as my photograph. I included some of the cutouts from the Victoriana sheet on my layout as well. 

Both sheets of paper were first covered with clear gesso. I prepared the background of the layout (yellow paper) by stenciling with modeling paste mixed with Andalusite Color Glow paint powder. I then tore the Victoriana paper, adhering it to the yellow sheet and then adding stenciling to it as well. Once the modeling paste was dry, I added diluted Andalusite and Amber (separately) onto the stenciling, spraying with water so that it moved on the page. 

I stamped onto the papers with black Archival Ink and then did some additional stenciling down the sides of the layout with modeling paste. Once the stenciling was dry, I added black gesso with a spatula, dragging it down the sides of the layout as well as lightly brushing it onto the white stenciling. Once the gesso was dry, I added Amber Color Glow to modeling paste and stenciled on top of everything. 

The chipboard pieces were painted with diluted Andalusite Color Glow. I love how this paint powder gives a silver shine when you look at it from an angle. 

I hope that you enjoyed my project and look forward to sharing with you all again soon. 

Until next time!
