Art Journal Page – Joy

Hello TCW friends
So great to be here today to share a little bit of The Crafter’s Workshop inspiration for you.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own

A process video with captions highlighting the items I have used is below. If you like to see a page come together quickly you can view the video

Step – by – step

1 – I start with some collage using TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium and some cute spotted wrapping paper

2 – Using TCW5016 – Quattrefoil and TCW9002 – Black gesso, I stencil randomly with a make up sponge across the page

TIP: Less is more when sponging through stencils. Once you have got some paint on your sponge, dab a lot of it off, until the paint is evenly covering the sponge, before you start actually sponging through the stencil. Keep in mind that you can go over a stencil as many times as you need to slowly build up the paint colour

3 – On a seperate pice of watercolour card using TCW861 – Happy Dandelions, I created some flower fronds in three different shades (see video)

4 – Finally I drew out the word JOY and coloured with watercolour in yellow

5 – Some mark making in yellow posca and some edging of the page in deep blue watercolour finish the page

I hope you enjoyed this video and it gives you some inspiration to have a go at your own page full of JOY.

Have a great day!
