Happy New Year to all of you! I wanted to share my latest art journal page, documenting my ‘One Little Word’ for 2016 and using 5 different 6×6 stencils.
These are the stencils I used below, after starting my background spread with several layers of watered down ink and Distress Ink.
Grey acrylic paint and dark teal circles applied with my fingers made a place for highlighting other stencils.
I used white modeling paste with this Mini Receipt stencil, but since the paint was still a little damp, it blended into more of the background.
Next, I added a dark contrasting mist and the 6×6 Repeating Pods.
I added 2 different shades of light blue/turquoise acrylic around the edges and other areas in between the other stenciled areas.
Using similar colors of watercolors crayons, I added more depth to the existing background colors and over patterns in the stencils.
Finally, I added the number ‘1’ and the word ‘ONE’ with white StazOn Opaque ink.
I also used another modeling paste in ivory opalescent with some of the small circular stencils on top of the acrylic paint circles.
Adding journaling phrases, a stamp and lots of white pen and ink doodling finished off my spread.
I wish you all an amazing day and thanks for stopping by the Blog today!

fabulous journal spread!
I love your ONE (well two) pages. I think it looks neat when the paste blends into the wet inks. I was wondering if you could tell me what brand water crayons you used? I have been thinking of adding them to my collection of mixed media supplies..but not sure which ones would be the best…or just the most fun. thanks so much Happy 2016
Thanks for the comment! I used Neocolor II crayons. I had a much cheaper set of oil based watercolor crayons, but they left some residue. The Neocolor ones are like butter, super creamy and lovely, worth the extra $! Good luck and Happy New Year!
