It’s Complicated Art Journal Page

Hello all you lovely crafter crafty people. Shanna here today and I played with some brand new 12×12 stencils and I love them.
I wanted to play with an art journal page. I have been itching and made quite a few at the same time. It is so easy to get lost having fun isn’t it?


So the way I put this together was fun and simple.

Art journaling can be about layers. I started with a layer of gesso just to prep the page. Then I went in with some paints.


Then I grabbed my first stencil I used TCW586.


I love using a make up sponge because I can control where the color goes.


Then I got to working on my modeling paste. I wanted it black and decided to use a gelato for that. 


I mixed some cut off gelato with water.

I got it mixed very well and then added in my modeling paste.


I used the stencil TCW567 with the mixed modeling paste.


Then I grabbed my black gelato again using my finger to rub color into TCW559.

I used some leftover black color with water to add splatter on my page. Then I went back around some of the black parts with a white gel pen for an extra highlight.

What do you think?

Here are some close ups!
