Art Journal Cover with Karenliz

Hi Everyone!
I’m not one to always decorate the cover of any of my art journals but when I saw the Sweet Posey stencil I couldn’t resist.

These are the supplies I used.

I first painted the cover in yellows and oranges with a palette knife (colors not shown above).

When it dried I used gold metallic paint on a sponge to add it to the stencil design.

I started adding the fluorescent paint on the Sweet Posey stencil. I added a little water so that it would spread.

Loving the bright colors.

I think I’m hooked!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
