AAJS6: Sharon's pages in Louise's "Gypsy" Journal

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing my journal spread in Louise's "Gypsy" themed journal.
I started by adding some texture to the background pages. I used gel medium to add tissue paper to both pages.
Once the dry I covered both pages with black gesso - such disgusting stuff to use - it seems to get everywhere LOL!!

Once the gesso dried I used several metallic coloured ink sprays to cover the pages.

I printed out all the collage elements and fussy cut - always a time consuming job but always worth the effort!

Finished pages with all the elements glued down and lettering added along with a few gems for added sparkle! I like the effect of the black background and curtains!

A great theme - hope Louise loves the pages!


  1. Stunning result Sharon. You were so brave to use the black gesso, but it looks amazing with the colour on it.

  2. Gorgeous pages Sharon I love your theme and those lush curtains look great on the awesome background.

  3. Another fabulous spread from Sharon. Awesome work!!

  4. Beautiful Sharon! I love the texture, the sparkly bits, the gypsy girl and those curtains! And I love that you always remember to take progress shots!
