Pascale here with my first step-by-step project for Lindy’s. I can’t wait to show you how beautiful the Magicals from Lindy’s are!
Today I chose to work on my Castle’s Journal that I started some time ago, but I’ve been too busy to have a chance to play with it. The castle I’m working on today is the Castle of Brézé (Loire Vallée, France).
I started to glue some book pages with a soft matte gel. When happy with this first step, I covered the whole page with white gesso.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I didn’t want the design to be too precise, so I added more crackle paste in some area and in doing so, remove some of the design. And let it dry naturally in order to obtain some nice cracks. If like me, your heater is on (it’s winter in France), you can place your project near the heater to speed up the process.
And now the fun really begins: time to add some color, I used three colors of Magicals. The first one I applied was the Afternoon Delight Denim that came in a Magical Shaker, I sprinkled some Magical where I want the color and sprayed some water. I just move my page to help the color to move. I dried the ink before adding the next color.
Next, I added some Grab a Guy Gold Magical, which like the previous came in a shaker. To add the Steampunk Sepia, I used my brush to add the Magical powder where I wanted it to be and sprayed with water to activate. When I was happy with the result, I dried everything with my heat gun.
I embossed some pieces of chipboard with the Twilight Blue Slate embossing powder.
I added some random stamping. And to finish the background I added also some black splatters.
Next, I added some lace, book’s page, tea bag, and some metal embellishments. And that’s it!
Here are a few close-ups of the finished page:
