Hello there! Jenni today to share an art journal spread I created with the express need for a little creative therapy!
Below are the stencils, mediums & paints I used in my project!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
Since I was looking for a creative outlet in a therapeutic capacity, I chose paints and mediums that are some of my favorites colors & products. I knew I wanted to create something with the cloud designs on one of the stencils and I thought that would coordinate well with my color scheme. Below are some of the products I used.
After using the White Gesso for a first layer, I added some loose watercolor paints.
I then used several of the sheets of Mixed Media Light Weight Sheets from ThermOWeb iCraft to brush Distress Ink onto using this large background stamp.
I also used some of the Heavy Body Acrylic paint in Silver on another of these sheets.
While the Mixed Media sheets are drying, I mix a pale purple color using more of the acrylic paints and applied it using a brayer.
Next, I used the Gel Medium to adhere the larger background stenciled sheets.
I cut out the design that I painted silver and adhered it as well.
I used more of the acrylics and the Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste to stencil the rain cloud designs in both the 12×12 and 6×6 size.
Using one of the new metallic pastes in Sterling Silver I added more of the raindrops layered on top of the blue clouds and rain.
The final stencil I used with another new paste, the White Pearl Modeling Paste.
Finishing up the spread, I added more paint, black and white pen and ink markers and some words I printed out. Below is the final layout and some detail shots.
