Computer Desktop Background Inspiration in My Art Journal by Karenliz

Hi Everyone!
Working all day isn’t always inspirational sitting at desk but lately I’ve been inspired by the desktop backgrounds on my computer.  I change them all the time based on my mood of the day.
Here is the one that inspired me.

MushroomsScreenSaverSMI love this shot of the mushrooms and what better stencil to use then the Whimsical Shrooms (12×12). I also used Rubberbands Fragment and Mini Circle Explosion.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils to create these projects. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.

I chose these pages because there was already paint on them. I use many of my journal pages for excess paint on my table. I started by adding the Mini Circle Explosion stencil with blue and white acrylic paints.

Once it was dry, I added all the mushrooms and flowers from the Whimsical Shrooms stencil with modeling paste. I painted everything and added a little more color to the background.

Here are the finished pages. I can imagine some fairies enjoying this little mushroom forest.
