This is how I created these pages:
Cover a journal spread with old bookpaper and add a layer of gesso. Keep it translucent at the top of the page and more opaque at the bottom. Add torn pieces of different washi tape as shown.
Using black StazOn ink, stamp some text stamps here and there. I used stamps from Travel and Collage Mix
Add structure with some stencils and molding paste.
Let dry well. Stamp some circles (Round in circles)
Add colour by using Gelatos. Blend the colours with a waterbrush.
Accentuate some borders and edges and the circles by drawing with a black water soluble pencil and a waterbrush.
Stamp the couple and the sentiment (Something wonderful) onto a separate piece of paper, cut them out and sponge some Vintage Photo Distress ink onto it. Glue them onto the page and draw shadows around it with a water soluble pencil and water. Stamp (fragments of) the map stamp with grey StazOn ink here and there, and stamp the watch and the tower using black ink. ( all stamps from Travel).
Finished spread once more:
