Happy Tuesday girls!! Ready to get junqie?! So today I’m in my Haute Mess Cobblestone Lane mixed media journal showing you some more ways to incorporate found junk in your journal and make it part of your art work!
For this page, I used some paper packing mesh as well as some old silk flowers I had hanging around. I’m telling you…you can throw just about anything that will fit on a page, cover it in molding paste and texture and it’s beautiful! Art journaling is so much fun when you just look around and this about the possibilities around you!
I’ve made a process video to show you how this page came together but long story short, I just slathered on a bunch of Haute Mess Molding paste under and over that paper packing mesh and used that as my starting point then added the flowers in the same way.
I waited for it to dry then white washed it a bit with “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess Acrylic and once that dried I gave the whole page a coat of Haute Mess clear gesso to prepare if for some color.
For the color I dabbed on some “Make it Rain” Haute Mess Acrylic paint and blended it well with some water.
I applied glass bead gel for texture and added some metallic touches with a rub of gold acrylic. Then I added some Matte Gel to the areas where I wanted to apply the glitter to, sprinkled the glitter and pressed it in well.
I finished the whole thing off with my photo, butterfly embellishments and title stickers.

It really was a fun page. The Molding paste & glass bead gel are my favorite products so I always have a ball and love the results when I use them on a page or project! I hope this encourages you to go find some junk and make it into some fabulous art today!
