Well I say art journal page but I can see this design lending itself well to cards or if you added a photograph then it would make a lovely scrapbook page. Put it on a canvas and you would have some home decor for a wall. So it really is one of those multi-usable designs if you know what I mean?! The background colour is a mix of the Prima Marketing watercolours and some Tim Holtz Distress inks and I've added in a little bit of acrylic paint in there too.
This is not my usual type of colour scheme as I am drawn to brights and jewel colours normally, but it is fun to mix it up a bit from time to time isn't it? There is also some die-cuts and stamping thrown into the mix as well as some stencilling and a resist. Oh and did I mention the crumpled up old book page? Mmm I think that's everything covered but you can see all of the details and the steps over on my 'How To Make A Textured Art Journal Page' on the Blitsy blog.
