AAJS6: Robyn's "Dreams & Fantasies"

Hi Everyone!
Sharing my pages in Robyn's "Dreams & Fantasies" journal from a few months ago - LOL I think I forgot to blog these pages at the time so I'm catching up!
I loved how this spread turned out - the colours and images were just what I was wanting to achieve.
I started by adding blobs of paint to each page and spreading with a credit card - I didn't want to cover the entire page so it's more "random" spreading of the blobs LOL!

Next I used a stencil and some Pearl finish paint and applied with a sponge randomly over the page - the pearl paint is great for adding some nice shimmer!
I also added some white paint using the same stencil randomly over the page as well.
Next I tore some Tim Holtz patterned tissue paper and adhered randomly over both pages. I did add a very thin "wash" of gesso over the pages to tone down the paint colours slightly after adding the tissue paper pieces.
Next step was putting my paper doll elements together - by Art Tea Life of course - LOL I'm like a broken record but this is my fav collage store - has the perfect images that I like to create with!

I used an alphabet stamp set to stamp out the "Dare to Dream" wording - I cut each letter out and edged with a sharpie.
Adhere the letters to one half of the spread:
And the paper doll to the other half:
Hope Robyn enjoys her journal when it returns home!
