Hello lovely crafters! I’m super excited to share this new Art Journal spread I created!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
Below are the stencils and LOTS of various mediums I used.
After prepping my pages with the Clear Gesso, I pulled lots of stencils with repetitive patterns on them and several sheets of Altered Pages vintage printables. I also used part of a Gold Foil sheet on the Mixed Media Foam from ThermoWeb & Rebekah Meyer that I had left over from Christmas.
I used gelatos for the base color of my spread.
After I blended the gelatos with water, I used the Gel Medium as a glue to make a collage with the Altered Pages printables.
After the Gesso dried, I used the plain Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste across parts of the pages.
I also stenciled some of the Heavy Body Acrylic paints over the 6×6 Micro Dots stencil.
Next, I added some Distress Inks over the Paste and the edges of the pages.
I wanted to create a focal point for the girl I planned to paint, so I used this large patterned circle stencil and inked it to the left side of the spread using Distress Oxide Ink.
I cut two angel wing shapes out of this piece of the gold foiled medium base. Using the wings as a guide, I painted a small shape of a face and torso.
After painting an outline of this girl, I added some of the luscious Champagne Gold Modeling Paste to this 6×6 stencil.
I continued to add detail to my girl and planned for her to hold a butterfly, from another 6×6 stencil, in her hands. The butterfly didn’t come out as clear as I had intended, so I tried to outline it with white gel pen and some other colors.
Below are the close-ups and the final pages of the Art Journal.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope this inspired you to get creative with your own art journal & do what matters to you!
