Classic Cars Vol.2 part 2 by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!!
Happy Monday!!  I have the other two Classic Cars Vol.2
projects ready to share with you.  Darkroom Door really hit a homer on this set.
So cute, great for guys!!!

1. Create a background using layers and layers of random colors of acrylic paint.  Mine started out as a page that I had cleaned the roller from the Gel-Press on.  It has hints of pink and purple under the green and yellow tones.
 I dulled that with the black paint. 
2. Add texture to the pages with stencils and modeling paste.  The white modeling paste applied over paint kinda of takes on the colors of the paint and I lost the look I was going after.
3. So I re-applied the stencil using acrylic paint.  The paint stayed white and I loved it on the black painted spots on the pages.
4. The sides of the pages were stamped with Stitched Borders set, giving the look that the pages were stitched with a sewing machine.
5. The center was created by stamping the car images on vintage dictionary paper with black ink. When the journal was closed the center paper tore apart. 
6. Stickers were added and stamped with StazonOn/black ink. (The stickers have a shiny surface and I wanted to make sure the text was not going to smear.)
7. Add speckles with black ink over the vintage dictionary paper.
8. Shading was added to the center, where the paper tore.
9. Vintage photo corners were added to the vintage dictionary paper.
