Hello Jude! I totally love your journal. The colors are fabulous! Oh my....LOVE the deep oranges graduating into the softer golden tones. The Thorndon Hall papers you used are incredible! No wonder you love them!! I need to check those out. I am not familiar with them in the states. Love your gesso covered Grungeboard letters!!! What a wonderful idea! Love the domino and the embellishment on the left of your journal. It looks like metal. Is it or something you magically (through your amazing technique) made to look like metal? Thank you so much for sharing this lovely piece of art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. It's beautiful! <3 Candy

Lovely journal Jude! Love the colours.
Thanks for visiting my blog; in answer to the question I used Americana acrylic paint for the coaster that I got from The Craft Barn, on this I think I used black, burnt umber, napa red, antique gold and also inka gold in lava green.
