Starting out with a piece of 140 lb.watercolor paper,DecoArt acrylic paints thinned down to watercolor consistency;apply layers of color till desired look is achieved.
Next pounce on acrylic paint-full strength to highlight areas
Mixed 3D Gloss Gel with paint

Same was done to background of cardstock journal page.
Next, a piece of craft board was sized smaller and layers of paint added, and set aside to dry
Attached watercolor paper to journal page and used gilding foil in various areas
