She Lived Forever

Hi Everone!
Time for brand new Friday inspiration from my Creative Team!
Athanasia's presenting her new art journal page doing wonders with my Art Alchemy paints on a black backround. But... hold on to your seats...! ;) She's also decided to use one quite unexpected 'art supply' - you will love this woman's endless creativity! Keep on reading. :)
Hello dear friends!
I hadn't made any page in my black journal for a while and I really missed working on black background!
Of course I went for something colorful as usual, with a vintage touch and a photo from the Ephemera Vintage Collectibles helped me a lot to create this special 'olden days' atmosphere.

As I wanted to mix modern and vintage styles, I decided to create a peeled paint effect background.
First thing to do was to seal my page with the Clear Gesso.
In order to create the background I used my favorite shades of Art Alchemy paints and...Vaseline! That's right! Vaseline is oil based, so it resists the water based paints and creates the peeled effect. It is a very pleasant technique, you will see the whole fun process in my video below.

When my acrylic paints were dry, I used the Clear Crackle Paste (which is lately turning out to be my fave product) right onto the paints and let it dry naturally to get perfect results. I absolutely love the final look!
To embellish my page I used 7 Dots Studio stickers and some handmade butterflies I created with the 'Don't forget to fly' cling stamps set and black embossing powder.
I also used a couple of chipboard pieces which I painted white with Heavy White Gesso.

Last thing to do was to doodle on the photo with a black pen and make some splashes with the Art Alchemy paints and White Gesso.

Here is my video with the whole process. I hope you will enjoy it and get inspired. :)

Thank you for visiting
have a lovely crafty day!
