Altered History Book Art Journal - Experience the World

This is a two page mixed media spread that I did in my Altered History Book Art Journal. I used ideas from several different tutorials on You Tube as well as my own ideas. For the background I followed a You Tube video that I saw on Pinterest called "Art Journal Page with Helmar and Faber Castell" by Lydell Quin. I used different products than she did but I followed the basic ideas and then put more details of my own. For the main image I created a She Art girl made famous by Christy Tomlinson and I wrote my own sentiment.
This page was first gessoed and then had many layers added of paints, inks, stencils, modelling paste, collage, markers, stamps, iridescent medium, mod podge, washi tape............ I'm not sure if I remembered everything but it sure is mixed media!

Here are close-ups of each page so that you can see more detail. If you click on any of these pictures you will see a larger view.

Enjoy your fun experiences!
Take care. :D

I really like the whole effect. It's fun to search the pages for the little details, some hidden more than others.
