Hello there my fellow crafty lovers and a Merry Christmas to you all!! I hope you are enjoying your precious time with family and friends. Today I am sharing with you all my latest Art Journal entry using some TCW stencils and other mixed media products.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
For my background I adhered some paper from an old dictionary and covered both pages using TCW9007 Clear Gesso. Once dry, I used my fingers to apply the following paints – Funky Fuchsia and White Linen Dylusions Paints, JBurrows Acrylic Paints – Magenta, Light Blue, Bright Aqua Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Pink, Fluro Orange and Fluro Purple.
I added some stamping to the background using Darkroom Door Paint Splats and also stamped my title using VivaLasVegaStamps Art is Anything – Andy Warhol along with black archival ink.
To finish off the background I added TCW202s 6×6 Mini Harlequin with Dylusions Paint – White Linen. Then I applied Dylusions Paint – Black Marble and a Fluro Yellow acrylic paint through TCW754s 6×6 Distressed Details stencil using a make up sponge
Now for my Dusty Attic chipboard – I lightly covered the Paint Brushes #2 and Mason Jars chipboard with TCW9001 White Gesso and a paint brush and then used some Distress Crayons to colour. The crayons I used were – Broken China, Brushed Corduroy, Chipped Sapphire, Candied Apple, Black Soot, Lucky Clover, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon. And I used my finger to blend the crayons.
For the lid of the mason jar I used Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint – Silver spoon and Dusty Attic Clear Gloss Varnish. You will also notice I have cut the paint brushes and adhered them to the Mason Jar.
There you have it my lovelies..my last art journal page for 2017! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you get to squeeze some crafty time in over the holidays. I look forward to showing you more in 2018!!
