Negative Painting birds – Art Journal Page

Hey there friends, I am back with a new art journal play page.

**The Crafter’s workshop provided me some products to create this project. The opinions I share, however, are solely my own. :)***

If you want to watch the process video, you can find it here:

Now let’s get started.

To my A4 Dylusions art journal, I add some Mushy Peas, Peony Blush and Calypso teal.

I start adding some interest, using TCW855 – Linked Tile with Funky Fuchsia.

Adding more layers of stenciling now using TCW833 – Fantastical with Pure sunshine.

One more magical layer using TCW834 – Stone Increase with Laid back Lilac

Next I take a Stabillo all pencil in black and draw out my basic design.  I chose a bird sitting on a tree branch with a smaller bird above.

Using the color Night, I started to go around the images, darkening the background.

I also then added some darker shading around each image using my stabilo all pencil again, and activating it.

Now lets add some beautiful flowers and “grass” to the bottom.  I am using white and vanilla with the gorgeous TCW845 – Wisteria stencil.

Some detail now.  Just adding a white line around each image using a white Posca Paint pen.

Lastly I add some die cut flowers from Art By Marlene and adhere them using TCW Matte Gel Medium.

I hope this project has inspired you.
