Dried Paint Funky Flowers Journal Page

Hi ya, I know I missed a whole month of October.  As you know we have had a very difficult with a death in the family and lots of illness.  I have also had a load of tests done in October and I think I just needed a break.  But now I am back and I really do have lots to show, I think I can fill November with everything lol.  I also shall try and catch up with my commenting which will likely take me a few months to complete, that's how far behind I am.  But I can't wait to see everyone's blog and all your wonderful art.
Today I have a journal page for you, now I have to admit, it's certainly different.  I was cleaning up a lot through the summer and into the Autumn and I realised one thing I had been saving but not used yet - dried up Paperartsy Fresco Paint.  Yep it feels so good when it's dried, that throwing it away after using it seemed sacrilege so I kept them.  Hope you enjoy on what I made with those left over pieces, plus lots of pics with some showing how I made the actual glossy flower heads, plus as this is my super large journal I used the page next to it as clean up and made another journal page that sort of links to this one.  I shall make sure I post it over the next few days :-)
I would like to enter the following challenges :-
Simon Says Monday Challenge Blog - So Glossy
Mixed Media World Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Love To Create Challenge Blog - Anything Creative Mixed Media
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes Mixed Media/Altered Projects

The clouds used dried Snowflake paint with some glitter dust,
the flowers were mixed flakes of the Fresco oranges and pinks, leaves the green paint and of course 
the sun was made up of yellow ones.  They were glued onto book paper
made of circles, then Golden Tar Gel on top to give a real glossy finish (shown
towards the end of the pics).
The page had tissue glued down first with creases to give texture.  I used
Grunge Paste with the large Joggles stencil Sunshine for the sun and
also used the paste for the base of the flowers using a circle stencil.
The background has Fresco paints and stencils plus bubblewrap and
Ellen Vargo stamps.  All colours and products used are at the bottom
of the page.  I then used some of JOFY stamps on scrap deli paper for
clean up for the leaves and flowers at the bottom.
I used a quote stamp from Lin Brown and then Posca pens for doodling around the edge and stem.

The tops of the flowers have left over dried paint from the paint bottles hence the opening.

This is a picture of half way through and as you can see the next clean up page was
extremely painty by then lol.

Here you can see me doing the leaves.

And here they are being set in clear Tar Gel.

Right that's it, can't wait to show you the next page I just completed.  I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have supported me on here, commented when I haven't been able to visit there's and understand how I have been.  I would also like to thank everyone who takes the time to read my blog and hopefully I haven't been gone too long to loose you all.
Happy Art :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
