An Art Journal Page with Zen Flower Stencil

Hi. It’s Karenliz. Today I have an art journal page to show you where I used lots of stencils and Pan Pastels.

To create the page I used the following:
TCW419 Mini Halftone Borders
TCW320 Mini Chevron Arrows
TCW330 Numbers
TCW228 Mini Herringbone
TCW466 Zen Flower
Pan Pastels
Krylon Workable Fixatif

I added the first four stencils from the list above to create the background with Pan Pastels. Because I was adding lots of stencils I used Workable Fixatif in between layers so nothing would smudge.


Next, I covered the entire page with black Pan Pastel. I did not spray on the Workable Fixatif because I wanted to be able to apply my next step.


I placed the Zen Flower stencil on top and erased the black Pan Pastel so I can see the background.


Remember when I said to use the Fixatif in between the layers of the background?  Well I forgot to spray a couple of layers and when I started to erase I did removed some of the background.  Once I was done I used a white pen and outlined the flower.


The more you erase the more you see. Just remember the Workable Fixatif!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
