Magazine Page Monday

Another Monday means another magazine page! I started out gesso'ing, (gessoing, gesso-ing) my pages and then added some embossing ink through some tape backing that has these little holes all over it. Then I added UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) to the ink. Here is what that looks like:
Gorgeous! Right? Lol maybe a little too soon to tell. So let's continue shall we? We shall :)
So I plopped some Magenta Paint onto these pages and then saturated the whole shebang with water and smeared it all around with a paintbrush. Once that was dry, I used a baby wipe to wipe the paint off the embossed areas. I then went around the edges with a purple dye based ink spray and blotted off any excess. Then I used my gesso again to block in the heart and then the letters. You can tell at the bottom of the pages I started to run out of room before letters so I had to squeeze them in there a little. I still like the way it looks. I painted over the gesso with acrylic paint and then drew over all that with painty pens, sharpies, 
Bic Mark it's etc. 
As always thanks for looking and I hope you have a fantastic and blessed Monday!
Hugs, Dawn
