New Stencils and Color Burst Play – Art Journal

Hi there Lovelies.  Welcome back to the TCW Blog.

Today I am sharing some fun I had with the new stencil release. I have been watching heaps of videos on Creativation 2019 and I loved what Ken Oliver has been doing with his color bursts, so naturally I had to play with mine too.

You can check out the whole process video here:

I Start off my page on my A4 Dylusions journal, and sprinkled some color bursts in green, turquoise and yellow.

Now I have to activate this powder by spraying on some water.

Once it dries, I start working on the background to add more interest.  I used TCW832 Script Words by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer with Dina Wakley paint in Peacock.

I am adding another layer of the same stencil in Dylusions Lemon Zest.

Once dried, I applied TCW Black Gesso through TCW831 Faithful Tree by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.

I just love the result of the striking black gesso on the bright background.  TCW Black Gesso is really nice and opaque, dries quickly and is perfectly matte for this!

Next I wanted to add some interest to the ground of the tree, and I love TCW849 Butterfly Reflections by Rebekah Meier, so I applied some TCW Heavy body Acrylic – Spun Sugar with the stencil and LOVED the result.


I added some of the flowers at the bottom of the tree, and this lovely butterfly design in a couple of places.

Now I want to do some doodling in white and black around the background.  I used a Posca paint pen and a black sharpie marker.

Lastly, adding finishing touches, by adding a phrase from Idea-ology – Small Talk.

I really loved the result of this page, and all the lovely stencils I got to play with.

I hope you got some inspiration today, to go out and create a page for yourself.

Thanks for checking out my blog post today, I would really appreciate it if you followed me on Social media, to see what I get up to.  Here is a link for you to all my platforms:  MY ARTY HEART
