Hi everyone! Today I'm so happy that I'm sharing my first ever proper Art Journal Page Video with you. I have been a very big fan of Vicky's Art Journal Pages but I didn't have courage to start over. It took me more than four years to lose fear and to create one. I have shared my first page (no video) HERE. After watching the result, I was quite confident enough to start my new love. :)
This Art Journal Page is made for Sizzix Lifestyle using their beautiful dies. The good thing about Sizzix Lifestyle's dies are they compliment each other very well and enhance the beauty of the design. I would like to thank Vicky for inspiring me, Yainea for the lovely glass jar technique and Sandy Allnock for glass effect technique! :)

ART JOURNAL PAGE PROCESS
I started by die-cutting all the die-cuts out of heavy weight white card stock and kept it aside. To a 6x6 panel (heavy weight card stock), I applied a generous coat of Heavy Gesso from Papericious. This Gesso dries very fast so I applied Dark Blue Acrylic Color to resemble the night sky and Black Acrylic Color for the ground. By the way, these Acrylic Colors are from Fevicryl, an Indian brand. These are super duper awesome! :)
I wanted the stars to stand out in the background so I added splatters of heavy gesso. This gesso splatters doesn't soak through the paper or doesn't take the color from the background. I placed the Mason Jar from Spring Time set, colored it the way to look like glass. Also colored the birds in gold acrylic paint. Also gave tiny details with silver gel pen to the top of the mason jar for metal finishing.
I adhered the mason jar and the birds with Tacky glue. I like how the tiny birds are coming out from the jar. So magical! :D This applied this concept on one of my old cards, check HERE.
The mason jar without some glass effect is nothing, so I applied a light coat of Gesso over the jar. It does look like glass, right? ;)
And finished the page with Dainty Lowercase Alphas. Yes! Miracles Happen! All you need to do is stay strong, do not lose your faith and wait for the miracle to happen! :)
