The Original Documented Life Project - week 6

Guest designing at Designs by Ryn is FUN! 
Today the first project: 4 to come!

I did a page for DLP week 5 with Designs by Ryn products as well...
Today I have this journal page for you, from beginning to end.. using the Original Documented life project inspiration, the Febraury theme being: Layers You Will Love!
and the art challenge for the 6th week:  When Not To Stop

Layers - When NOT to stop, let's begin!

Enjoy the process!

 Start by adhering music paper to your page. Tear the edges to make it fit, leave out some space on the edges.. add torn pieces to fill it up. Add a thin layer of the decoupage glue to act as a resist, leave to dry. 
Apply structure paste to the page with the gorgeous Maidenhair stencil from Designs by Ryn. 
Leave to dry. 

Spray custom made sprayinks over it.  Oops, I lost the light in the ferns...

From here you will see:  if you just play  .. the next steps just happen.. 

... scratch the top layer off the structure paste to reveil the white .. still not happy? !

... add darker lines around the maidenhair's leaves to get it back in balance.
Also add some light color to the leaves. 

..add some journaling to the page, 
(I even wrote ... Grrrrr...  somewhere, also about the layering...and enjoy playing .. )   .. still not happy ....

... add some lighter black stamped and some darker black stamped images around the fern ...  highlight the edges of these stamped edges with a white acrylic marker. I used the Honey Locust Leaf stamp here. never thought I would use it this way, LOVE the effect!

 I am happy now   !!
Look at all that beautiful layering!
