Hi there! Jenni here to share a new Art Journal page combining new stencils and media from The Crafter’s Workshop. I used several new medias; the new heavy body Gold Iridescent paint, Black Modeling Paste and new stencils in multiple sizes! I wanted to continue my contrast using black, bold colors & gold…
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
As usual, I began using The Crafter’s Workshop ‘White Gesso’ for a base to my art journal pages… I taped the spine with masking tape beforehand. I try to do gesso a spread in advance and have them ready.Next, I used several shades of pinks, orange and yellow watercolor crayons to create a base of color. I used a wet paper towel to blend the colors mute the colors a little.I started using Distress Inks and the leaves and branches on part of the ‘Birds on Branches’ stencil. I created a framework in the corners and edges with those leaves. Next, I used these coral pigment inks and the large sphere to stencil a mirror image across the spread. I kept the ink light around the leaves to highlight them and not mix the colors. After the inks dried, I used the Black Modeling Paste and a couple of the 6×6 Doodling templates around the edges and borders.
Next, I used this scrumptious gold paint to paint over parts of the designs. I had this quote about Grace on a Pinterest board and used the 2 different sizes with the Modeling Paste to add that word. I filled in the remaining words of the quote across the two pages. Then I just began to doodle! Using several different widths of black pens, colors markers and white gel pens to add a final layer of depth. I used the flash to photograph the spread below because I wanted to capture the gorgeous quality and power of the Gold Iridescent paint!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all Grace throughout your day!
