Mixed Media - Dreams

I did a mixed media art challenge with a friend, Sue, on YT!  This page is what I came up with.  It's my first attempt at mixed media in my art journal, and I really had a lot of fun with it.  I'm definitely looking forward to getting more practice in. 

I started this project with a layer of white Gesso, then used the Gelato paints from Faber Castell to color the background.  The words are a modeling paste used with a TCW template.  All of the shimmer on this page is from the Creative Inspirations Paint store.  The silhouette image is something I found online and printed up, then fussy cut it and heat embossed it with the Deliquesce Black from CIP.  Next I die cut the lamppost (holiday lamppost from Sizzix) on lightweight black chipboard, painted it with Coal and Buttercup CIP paints, and then heat embossed it with the Deliquesce Clear.  I used Fairy Dust paint over the words, and Winter Frost across the images and areas of the background.  The die cut and silhouette were adhered with an acrylic matte medium, which I also used to seal the entire page when I was done.
You can also see a video of this project here (or on my YT channel at FaerieTalesWithPaper):
