Neon Glosses are the perfect medium to make bold, colorful spreads in your art journals. I love how they make backgrounds pop!

Step 1: Spread two Neon Gloss colors across the pages of your journal. Here, Bodacious and Stoked were used.

Step 5: Add coordinating colors of Glosses to the tags using a sprayer or dropper. Spread the color by smooshing both tags together. Notice how the gessoed patterns show as the colors pool around them.

Step 7:  Attach one of the tags to the spread with a stapler. Rip off any excess that may hang off the bottom edge. Add a face transparency and botanical image with a stapler or Ultra Thick Gel Medium. Add a phrase to the page with Gel Medium, then splatter with Black Gloss.
