Oregon Coast art journal page

Just finished my second art journal page in my first ever at journal. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The book itself is an encyclopedia that I altered. I have the whole set and hope to some day have an entire set of art journals.

I started by gessoing my page then put down a piece of wallpaper. I brushed some Vaseline on the wallpaper then painted on a layer of white paint. I let this dry real good and wiped away the paint that covered the Vaseline. I used my finger to smear some paint around and a paper towel roll to stamp some circles and India ink to trace those circles. When everything was dry I glued down my magazine clippings and used my finger to smear some gesso around the clippings. I used a paint pen to decorate my page and edge it and a Pitt pen for my journaling. It was a lot of fun.
