2017 seems to be my year for participating in daily art challenges. Some of the challenges last a month, but I am also working on a daily year long challenge that has a prompt attached to each day. I’ve discovered that The Crafter’s Workshop stencils have been a fabulous source of inspiration for many of the prompts and wanted to share some of those art journal pages with you today!
Prompt: Red • Stencil: One Way
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.
Along with all of the new stencils, I used TCW’s new heavy body acrylics. They are fabulous to stencil with! Add in the different types of modeling paste and Shimmery Goodness, and I had a ton of inspiration, colors and textures to draw from for each challenge prompt!
Top left prompt: Star • Stencil: Positivity
Top right prompt: Dainty • Stencil: Flower Tangle
Bottom left prompt: Stack • Stencil: Tiled Flower, Spiral Staircase (there are more but I can’t remember them! I just kept stacking the stencils!)
Bottom right prompt: Girl • Stencil: Amalia
Prompt: Lines • Stencil: Mondrian-esque
Prompt: Fish • Stencil: Tribal Fish
Prompt: Texture • Stencil: Celebration, Four Feathers
Prompt: Birthday • Stencil: Fantasy Sphere, Happy Greetings
Prompt: Orange • Stencil: Butterfly Trail
As you can see, I was able to draw so much inspiration from the stencil patterns! I hope this gives you some ideas on how to incorporate stencils into your daily art practice! You can find me adding pictures of my daily art over on Instagram…
Thanks for joining me today…
