I started with some black Bazzill card, painted it with clear gesso and stuck a few strips of patterned paper to it, painting gesso over the patterned paper to stick it down.

I added some paper doilies at the same time. The gold one was toned down with the clear gesso.

Some teal acrylic paint ….it was looking a bit messy here but I really liked the colours and I just kept an open mind. I let it dry for a while before adding some texture paste I have tinted with pink and used a stencil with little crosses on it, to add some texture.

Added some die cuts and hand cut patterned paper and bright red stitching. The colours are really bright and I love how it turned out. Heres some close ups of the finished page. I stuck onto another piece of card to keep it flat, as the paint and gesso buckle the paper a little. When I stitched it around the edges, I had the extra card at the back and it flattened out a lot.
