Glazing Texture- I'm in LOVE!

I bought a new product from Golden that's called Glazing Fluid and couldn't wait to play with it in my Art Journal. To use the Glazing Fluid, you mix it with acrylic paint and then brush it onto your surface and let it set about 1 minute. You then take a baby wipe and wipe the mixture off your page. The glaze looks really cool with textured surfaces and makes embossed images really pop. 

Recently I have a love for tags. They are a great medium to work with and they come in all different sizes. I decided that tags would be a great medium to use with the glazes. I the tags through my Sizzix machine using a variety of embossing folders to add different textures. I then randomly glued then to my background.

Once I had all the tags down, I then put on two layers of white gesso to prime the page.

 After the gesso dried, I painted the entire background with three different colors of distress paint and blended them with water. The nice thing about the distress paint is when it is dry it is permanent. The colors were way to bright for me, so I took my glazing fluid and mixed it with brown paint. Applied the mixture to the entire surface, let it set and then wiped most of it off with a baby whip. 

At this point I was in LOVE! I love how the brown gave it a vintage feel and really made the embossed images pop. I added a little bit more texture by laying down and plastic stencils and randomly applying black stencil paste to it.

This page is still a work in progress. I have the background to a point that makes me happy, but I haven't decided what to place on top of it yet. One of these days something will speak to me, until then I'm happy with where it is and enjoy rubbing my hand over it to feel all the amazing different layers of texture.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
