Hi everyone. It's Tracey here to share a new page for my Scripture journal. I simply adore working with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Denim Art Journal. The extra thick chipboard pages are a dream to work with and hold up perfectly for mixed media techniques. I feature Donna's new Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Twine and Gauze along with her new wine and silver Pigment Powders.

Tips and Techniques
I created these twine flowers using Donna's new navy and aqua Girlie Grunge Twine. I'm working on a video tutorial demonstrating how to make these sweet flowers, so stay tuned! I sprinkled Donna's Clearsnap Mixed Berries Twinkle Dust Glitter onto Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® ~ DODZ™ - 3D to create these sparkling centers. The twine flowers are layered onto flowers created with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Gauze. Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Dodz™ XL are perfect to adhere them to the page.
The sentiment is stamped onto white cardstock with Donna's Clearsnap black Mix'ed Media Inx, then edged with a blend of Donna's Indigo and Schoolhouse Mix'd Media Inx.
I adore creating my own paint with Donna's Pigment Powders and mixed up a custom aqua color by combining her blue and gold powders to brush over the gauze and resin flowers.
This metal feather charm is brushed with white gesso, then dry brushed with more of my pigment powder paint. I added silver pigment powder to the aqua to achieve this darker blue.
I adhered a few strips of a dictionary page to the background and brushed the entire page with white gesso.
I cut a couple odd shaped pieces from Donna's Girlie Grunge Gauze, which I spritzed with water and distressed. When dry I adhered it to the page for added texture. I lightly brushed with my aqua Pigment Powder "paint", then dry brushed with white gesso to soften and to highlight the textures.
Here's another shot of the gauze.
I stenciled texture paste across the right side of the page. While it was drying, I mixed up a blend of Donna's Clearsnap Mixed Berries and Holly Berries Smooch Spritz along with her Wine and Silver Pigment Powders to create this rich wine color. Once the molding paste was dry, I spritzed with water, then brushed with the wine water color mixture allowing the color to spread and pool. While wet, I sprinkled and rubbed with blue pigment powder.
I also mixed together a blend of Sea Breeze Smooch Spritz and silver Pigment Powders which I applied at the edges of the wine color, again spritzing with water, to move and create lovely color variations as it dried.
On the left side of the page, I applied these same colors, but used a palette knife to scrape the color across the corner, spritzing lightly with water as I applied the color.
I also randomly splashed a little of the color onto the white center of the page.
I hope you've been inspired to grab your Girlie Grunge products
and mix them together to create a mixed media project.
