Dare to dream Mixed Media page tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new tutorial.
This is single art page made with a lot of mediums and this time I used Faber Castell DMC products as my mediums and Rebecca Baer stencils  and a lot of Mixed Media page.

 Step by step tutorial:
1. Make the background over thick white cardstock with Faber Castell gelatos and wipe the colors with baby wipe.
I made rectangles with those colors, some are metallic colors and then blended them all together without adding any water.

2.Use Rebecca Baer stencils- two of them- with modeling paste  over the watercolored page.
You may secure the stencils with washi tape as shown.

This is  how this page looks  without the stencils and it's still wet. 

3.Cover the main circled areas with a thick layer of Faber Castell DMC Glaze Medium, also I used Texural Accent Sampler. Add a few more smaller circles on the " empty areas"  as shown for more interest.

4.Add a thick layer of clear glitter over the glazed circles as shown.

5 Wait till all previous mediums are totally dry. Now let the fun begin! Cover the entire page with a thin layer of Faber Castell DMC Chalkboard paint. Then wipe the paint over  glazed, embossed, glittered areas with baby wipes. And  also just one wipe  is shown  here, you sure need much  more to get this finished look. And yes, it's totally messy, but worth the result.

6.Stamp Rubber Dance flowers from Antique Botanicals  and  Bold and Beautiful sets with FB DMC   Stampers Big Brush pen in Black over white tissue paper.This is an India ink big pen that works perfectly as an ink over rubber stamps as you can see.

7.Stamp two Rubber Dance Dragonflies - large and small ones-  over clear vellum.
Use clear embossing ink and heat emboss the images with black  embossing powder.
Hand cut the images and color them with FB DMC Pitt Artost  Pens in two  colors and one Stampers Big Brush pen in Light blue.

8. Stamp s few more flowers from Bold and Beautiful set  directly over the page near the edges using the same  black Big Brush.
Now tear the tissue stamped images and glue them as shown with FC DMC Gel Medium.
Outline the largest circle with the pen- this will be our sentiment spot.

9.Let the page be totally dry and them color the tissue  flowers and leaves with a mix of bright colors using FC DMC  Stampers Big brush pens in a few colors.

10. Glue the  vellum dragonflies over the  page using Gel medium.
Make the sentiment with stickers (I used MME ones)
Outline some glitter circles with white  pen as shown.

And here are some close- ups to this art page:
