Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  

Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth Apter Baked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!

I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint.
Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder.
Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder.
Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge.
Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works!
Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coated some fractured glass embossing powder.  A great underwater effect.
