Journal - Double page

Hello crafty friends and welcome. I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Mine this week is being spent in Mildura which is 5 hours from home. My eldest son Riley is at the Wimmera Band School for 7 days. He starts at 8.45am till 5pm, gets a tea brake and then is back from 7pm till 8.30pm, long days. There is then study time before bed. He gives up one week of his school holidays for it. He loves it though and that's all that matters. 

I get to do my DT posts and this one is for Archi-scraps and boy is it a great challenge to get your craft into. Check out the awesome picture below that you can get your inspiration and interpretation from. You have to use either Gesso or Texture paste to create a Stucco effect. I used both on my journal pages and tried to create a Mexican/cactus look.
