Family Journal - Nicolas

Love for detail, colour and texture.
Pascale's journal spread will take you down the history lane where you will find some inspiration! 

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Mixed Media Place blog with a page of my "Family journal". I started this journal during the 
"Frozen in Time" class with Anna Dabrowska aka Finnabair, I decided that it will be a genealogical journal. And today it's my maternal grand-father turn. 

For this page I was inspired by one of Anna's recipies : Under pressure of simplicity (
I started by covering the background with white gesso. Then I added a design with Modeling Paste and Heavy Black Gesso.

When the design was dried, I sprinkle the page with Mica Powders and I sprayed water. When I was happy with the result, I dried and fixed the Mica Powders with a fixative. I 've done the same with the Primary Element.

I added a book page (my grand-father was a teacher and he loved reading), a tea bag, some rusted mechanical under my photo. I added the same combination on the opposite side.

To finish my page, I added some gold Glass Glitter and Splash Micro Beads.

  1. Your journal pages are gorgeous! You are lucky to have such wonderful family photos. I have very few of my grandparents and back any further - they were all lost. Thanks for sharing.
