AAJS5: Jenny's "Tales of Brothers Grimm"

Hi Everyone!!
Sharing my journal pages in Jenny's Journal - the last one for this round - can't believe the journals are making their way home to everyone - it has been so much fun an can't wait for the next round to start!
I started by adding some gesso to the page to give it a base and then added dobs of watercolour paint which I spritzed with water and then "smooshed" around with a baby wipe!

I added some paper doileys around the edges.
Sprayed some black Dylusions ink - wanted to stay with a red/white/black/gold theme for the pages.
Splattered some gold paint over the pages with a large paint brush and edged the border with the brush to use the excess paint as well.

I used collage gals by Art Tea Life - of course - my favourite store as I have mentioned before LOL!!! 12 Dancing Princesses - LOTS of fussy cutting!!!!!
I thought they should have little gold tiaras being princesses so I punched little gold crowns to add.

Started arranging them and gluing them to the page along with some gold washi as "platforms" for them to stand on.

 I printed the wording on gold paper and added to the tops of the pages.

So much fun creating this page even with all the fussy cutting and sticking on!!!

Hope you like it Jenny!!
