3 Leaf Burnt Rose Dark Junk Journal from stash

Junk journal made from stash. Cover is cardboard from rice box. Was cut a bit short so the papers peep out on top. Inside is mostly printer paper, some pastels printer paper and some 6x6 scrapbooking papers and graph paper and 1 adult coloring page folded double so to insert bits of papers, one old magazine page House Beautiful folded top glued and also has papers inserted. All sorts of leftover tea dyed paper and a narcissus dyed very faint yellow with some tea drips so yellow shows up against it. Has 3 signatures of each 7 pages.Cover painted with gouache mixed. Is a color burnt rose dark, I see it in acrylics paint Spain brand Acrylicos Vallejo but it is always sold out, so mixed it in gouache is a mix of black with burnt sienna. I look at paint swatch at AV to get similar color. The green I mix from gold acrylic and phtalo green light acrylic paint.

Love that you mixed the colors to get the shades you wanted. I love the background design, and the green leaves really pop!
