Yesss, I have finished my first Mixed Media Art Journal!!

It is done; my very first finished art journal. I started this journal in March 2013, so it took me a little over a year, but I do work in several journals at the same time, and have joined in various ongoing challenges in between too. Anyhow, this is my last page, and it says: THE END! LOL!!
But every end marks a new beginning, so my next journal is already lying here, ready for me to get started in it.
Now this week I started trying out corroding metal stuff after seeing a toturial by France Papillon on the subject. It worked quite well, and I ended up with some kitchen roll with lovely corrosions stains on it. That was the basis for my page.
Then I sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow sprays on: Buccaneer Bay Blue and Treasure Island Aqua which not only enhanced the lovely brown vintage look, but also gave a nice shimmer to my page. I stamped on the background with a script stamp and Stazon Timber brown.
Then I took a strip of watercolour paper and used some green and blue Distress Stains on. I added some leftover plaster bandage which I coloured with tea dye Distress Stain, and stitched through with my sewing machine. I took some die cuts from K & Company, again sprayed some LSG sprays on, inked all the edges with Walnut stain and stamped 'the end' on the smaller tag and wrote: 'Every end marks a new beginning' with a brown felttip pen on the larger one. I glued down the thread used for stitching with mat gel medium.
I hope you like my final spread in this album, I was pretty pleased with it myself (blush)..........
