Art journal page: Glimmer of Light

Hi and happy Wednesday!
Today I wanted to share with you my latest mixed media art journal page with black, white, and a hint of gold:

I got the idea for this page when flipping the pages of my Moleskine art journal. I came across a page I had painted with black gesso, and thought that a dark, solid black background would match perfectly the strong quote stamp text by Visible Image.
After adding a second layer of black gesso on the page, I dabbed some white gesso on the page, creating the background for my glimmering light bulb:

Once the paing was dry I stamped and heat-embossed the light ray pattern and the sentiment text on the page. The light lightbulb is stamped on white paper, cut out, and glued on the page.

To add even more glimmer, I sprinkled some gold colour heavy embossing powder flakes on the page. I did not use any embossing ink, so for keeping the flakes on the paper during heating, I heated the page from underneath. Worked out well!

Wishing you a wonderful week!
