Hi Everyone ! I am Anna one of TCW Brand Ambassadors and I am so delighted to be here with my first post.
I’ve created this Art Journal spread using great stencils from the Winter Collection 2018 . It was fun and I hope you will get inspired and create something too .
To be honest I hadn’t much plan what I was going to do . I just relaxed and started creating . I think this is the best way to achieve something unique . Sometimes we are overthinking and can’t make a choice what to do . So this was quick and easy with a beautiful outcome at the end .
Firstly, I mixed TCW9001 White Gesso with heavy body acrylic paints TCW9017 Lemon Custard and TCW9022 Grape Jelly to get light pastel colors to paint my background . Once I was happy with the outcome I truly tried my pages. Next I used a stencil designed by Rebekah Meier – TCW768 Journal Musings to add extra interest to my background working with the sponge and I’ve done the same with another stencils from Perfect Stencils collection – TCW2167 Halftone Vortex ( on the package on the back you can see my sample card I’ve made using this stencil – it’s the ombre one )
For my focal point I was working with stencil designed by Carmen Medlin – TCW785 Ornate Borders with TCW9005 White Modeling Paste . I slowly add each texture and dry truly to prevent smudge . This part was most enjoyable as I could control where and how much of texture to add to my page .
At the end I darkener edges with TCW9002 Black Gesso and add a sticker to finish off my spread .
It was quick and easy ART and I truly enjoyed the process and I hope you will too .
