Dina Wakley Text Collage Journal Spread Step 1

Step 1: Begin by tearing various scraps of Text Collage Paper and gluing them down to your pages with Ultra Thick Gel Medium. Try to leave some of your blank page too to add interest (here you can see the kraft page peeking through). Allow to dry thoroughly.

Step 2: Scrape some White Gesso on your page to tone down your collage and give the page some grunge.

Step 3: Using a Blending Tool and the Lattice Stencil, stencil randomly on top of your page to create even more tone-on-tone texture.

Step 4: Using a focal image from the Let the Art Out Stamp Set, stamp on White Cardstock. Cut image out and paste on top of black cardstock leaving an edge. Trim the black cardstock and your image will now have a mounted look for your page.
