Today I have an art journal page using The Crafter’s Workshop new stencils called Poppy Field designed by Ronda Palazzari and Victorian Sketchbook designed by Kasia Krzyminska.
I started off with a journal page with a background on it already. Lots of acrylic paints, water and you can see TCW539 Pattern stencil in the background.
I used super heavy gesso through the Poppy Field stencil to add all the poppies.
Once they all dried I used Pan Pastels to add color; blues, purple, yellows.
Using the Victorian Sketchbook stencil I added some flourishes onto the page with my white Gelly Roll pen.
Here are a few close ups:
You can see bubbles in the super heavy gesso. I couldn’t wait for it to dry so I used a heat gun for faster drying but I love the bubbles. Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area.
Here is the final page.
Wonder what this would look like on a canvas?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you Bev.
Gorgeous texture and colors!
Thank you so much. I love texture.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this journal page. Pls answer one question: after you used pan pastel on poppies, did you need to use a fixative? If you don’t, does the pan pastel come off? Thanks
Ida, I’m so happy you love my journal page. Yes, I use a fixative. Krylon Workable Fixatif. With the modeling paste the pan pastel stays on for a while but it will eventually disappear. I hope this answers you question.
I love the poppies journal page – wow!!!
