For this challenge there really wasn't anything in my stash I've been waiting to use but there was a technique I wanted to try which used various items in different ways. I decided that since the technique was new and I'd use a lot of different products some of which I don't use often it would make a good trip to the second floor.
My project is an art journal spread using the quote "Once you choose hope, anything's possible" -Christopher Reeve. I started by coating my pages with Matte Mod Podge. I cut several different lengths of different colors of embroidery floss. I dropped them onto the page and pressed them in with my fingers. Then I took a sheet of hot pink tissue paper (I would have used white but I didn't have any). I crumbled it and then unfolded it and pressed it down into the Mod Podge. Once I was satisfied I gave it another coat of Matte Mod Podge. I then dripped on some pink acrylic paint and some gesso and spread it over the texture with an old credit card. I loved the webby textures that were created by the thread and the crinkly tissue which were further accentuated by the lighter shades of paint. I added gold stickers for the words CHOOSE HOPE. I wrote the quote on the page with a Pitt marker. I finished it off by dusting it with Gold Perfect Pearls.
Here is the result:
