And here are the steps.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step1_MouS
 
Apply a moderately thick coat of Gesso to prime the journal page. While still wet, color with Margarita Mix Gelatos color. Create a texture pattern using Texture Card # 8.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step2_MouS
 
In a bowl, mix about 3 parts water and 1 part gesso. Add in Blueberry and Cotton Candy Gelatos colors by cutting a little off with the palate knife. Mix well.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step3_MouS
 
With a drip dropper, drop a generous quantity of the above mix and let it travel around by turning the journal page in different directions.

Go back in with the same Texture Card to accentuate the texture further.

Apply Whipped Spackle through the Dots stencil. Let dry. Rub in some Texture Luxe Gold with your fingers around the page. When the page feels dry, drip in more of the liquid mix prepared above.
