Believe in Magic: an Art Journal Page With Gina's Designs and ColourArte

Lynne here with an art journal page. As soon as I saw the new Dragon Shapes Set, I knew I HAD to play with one right away. I figured if I believe in dragon magic, why shouldn't I believe in fairy magic too, right?! Makes perfect sense to moi....

 I had originally planned on saving the ColourArte goodies to use on a canvas for next week, but after I ran the dragon through an embossing folder and got a look at the awesome texture, I had a brainstorm and decided I wanted to see what the colours and shimmer of the paints would look like on these pieces.

I layered the Ginger Peach Silkswith splotches of twinkling H20s in Orange Peel and Deep Coral,and I love the effect it created.

The brick panel and loose bricks were coated in a light layer of texture paste before I added the paints, which created a little more dimension.

I didn't get a chance to try out all of the yummy colours in my ColourArte goodie bag, so look for another project from me next week incorporating them as well-most likely something featuring a whole rainbow of colours! Thanks so much for stopping by and have yourself a magical week!
