A Grateful Heart Art Journal Page

Hi there TCW Fans, Farrel here to share with you all my last design team project. I just wanted to start by saying a huge thank you to both you guys (the awesome followers) and The Crafter’s Workshop. I have had an absolute blast over the past 2 years designing and sharing my projects with you all.

For my last project, I wanted to create an art journal page with the quote “start each day with a grateful heart” and use my 3 all time favourite stencils…… so this page is a “Thank you” to you all xx

(there is also a video at the end of the bog)

To begin my page I applied a coat of TCW9001 White Gesso and used my heat tool to dry. I then used TCW737 Love Sonnet in 6×6 and TCW764 Number Scramble in 6×6 to create my background. I randomly inked with these two stencils using Hickory Smoke Archival Distress Ink.

Next I used TCW790 Micro Bricks 6×6 stencil with Ranger crackle medium and applied it with a spatula. Then heat set it with my heat gun and watched the crackle magic begin.

Next I added some Lindy’s Magical Shakers and Ken Oliver’s Iron Oxide Color Burst and used water to move it around the page. Then set it with my heat tool.

Then I adhered the Paper Dolls to the page along with the sticker quote. I then used my Fineline Applicators Standard tip tube that has some TCW9002 Black Gesso in to doodle around the edges.

Please feel free to watch the process video below and again from the bottom of my heart….. Thank You xx
