Amazing Race Journaling Challenge Leg 5 - India

I decided to enter into the Amazing Race Art Journaling Challenge on Facebook

Leg Five is India -  here is my journal page...

Living in India for a while we had experience of the Indian Spring festival 'Holi'.  We saw it celebrated with abandon!

For my journal pages I wanted to use the Indian colours of  'Holi'!
These first layers were a medallian stamp embossed several times in a variety of shimmery embossing powders - the images ended up looking dark red...
I then added texture paste through a stencil around the edges. When dry, I painted this with a selection of distressed inks, smeared on my craft mat and spritzed with water.

I distressed the edges all round with stormy sky.

I stamped a 'Sheena' elephant on a piece of 'wrinkle free distressed' card, cut it out and added grey Promarker around the edges. This was glued in place bottom right.
Above this I added two scallopped squares of shiny paper with a Ganesh and two gems.

We visited Mysore while we were in India and saw the statue of the Demon King. I took a postcard image of this and cut paisley shapes from it (dies from Reverse Confetti). I added these to the left hand side.

Happy Crafting!
