Happy Thursday everyone, Farrel here today to share my new art journal page I created using some of the new TCW stencils.
I am using my 8×8 Dylusions Art Journal for this post and I begin with tearing up a page from a dictionary and applying the pieces to my page with TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte and a paint brush.
Once the gel medium is dry, I then use a paint brush to apply the chalk acrylic paint. I am using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint in Mermaid, Smoked Paprika, Beach Hut and Very Berry.
Using those same colours I used a make up sponge to apply the paints through TCW837 Texture Plate in the 12×12 stencil. This is such a fabulous stencil for backgrounds.
Next I add some stamping using stamps by Darkroom Door and Viva Las VegaStamps and archival ink. I then stamped Dina Wakley’s Scribbly Wings and Silhouetted Women onto some white cardstock and after a little bit of fussy cutting I then adhered it to the page. I used Distress Crayons in Broken China and Stormy Sky to add a little bit of colour and used my water pen to blend the crayon out a little.
I then went around the edges of my woman and sentiment with my Stabilo Aquarelleable pencil and used my water pen to blend it. ( As you can see my sentiment is the wrong way around which I noticed after the glue had dried lol…. I managed to fix it later though) I also used the pencil to add some shading around the edges of the page.
To finish off the page I used my Fineline Applicator to add some doodling around the edges of the page. My applicator has a mixture of water and TCW9016 Spun Sugar acrylic paint in it.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and thanks for dropping in and I look forward to seeing my next project with you all soon.
