Faith Art Journal Layout

Kim Schofield Jax TCW599 Coaster TCW621Hi crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a fun art journal project that I created a few months ago, based on a previous Inspiration Wednesday class. This was one of the first projects I created after joining The Crafters Workshop design team so…this one is a special page for me. And it was a quick and easy project to create, here are the steps…

Kim Schofield Jax TCW599 Coaster TCW621My project started with vintage text and the Jax (TCW599) stencil. I used Dina Wakley acrylic paint (Black) to add the stencil design to the pages. Notice that I did not start with gesso…

I also didn’t wait for the black paint to completely dry (mostly because I’m impatient!) and some of the paint smudged, but I ended up really liking how the page developed more of a gray tone vs. pure white.

I placed the stencil off the edge of the paper each time I added paste so that I wasn’t getting a complete circle.

The last steps included simply painting circles and adding paint in the great color combo of teal, orange, and gold. Love, love, love the colors on this piece! I also used a Stabilo pencil for the shading around all of the circles.

The faith word is actually a chipboard piece, from my local craft store, that I painted and attached with matte medium.

I’ll end with a close up of that Coaster stencil…I just adore the look of the broken design and how the teal paint, applied with my finger, highlights small portions of the raised area. This stencil is definitely going into my fav pile!
I hope that you enjoyed today’s project! Please note that this design was directly inspired by a Donna Downey design, it is not my specific design. I’m sharing how I put my spin on it, using TCW stencils and supplies in my stash! Happy Crafting!!
