Glazing Stencil Technique

Hello everyone Shanna here with a new art journal creation to share with you!

I feel like I haven’t played in my journal in a  while and then I decided since I have been listening to music lately, I wanted to start incorporating music lyrics into my art journal pieces.

TCWJanuaryAJ-7*The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.*

I gathered some supplies to challenge myself to not use anything that wasn’t on my desk… HARD.


Of course I needed baby wipes for this technique I saw done long ago.

So I started with a quick spread of some fluid acrylic paint and misted it with water so it was watered down and spread easily. The page was initially gesso’d too.


Then I went in with the stencil TCW525 and some Ranger Texture Paste. Make sure you clean your stencil off immediately.


Then I created a glaze with some glaze medium and a different fluid acrylic color.

Let it sit for just a minute the longer it sits it will dry and you WON’T be able to remove color where you don’t want it.


So I used a baby wipe to remove some of the color. But as I stated above let it sit for just a quick minute. I let mine sit a little too long so color had dried where I didn’t want it.

But I love things that don’t come out perfectly how I imagined.


Then I went back in with the same stencil and my original base color. I used a make up spoon to add the color on the edge of my page.


Then I used some black paint and stamps to add some wording on my page.


Here are some close ups.




Than you so much for stopping by.
