Art Journal Page – Blessings

full art journal page showing butterfly in a field of flowers

Hello TCW friends!

Fields of flowers and butterflies flutter through my mind as I think about being out in the sunshine in these ‘locked-down’ weeks. As I dream about visiting these wide-open spaces, the best way to reach them at the moment is within my art journal. Come along with me on this arty journey into nature.

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

This project features 3 stencils; TCW922 – Ethereal, TCW246 – Swiss Dot & TCW925 – Nature’s Circuitry

and also 2 mediums: TCW9004 – Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste & TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium

Of course, as usual, If you enjoy seeing a page come together quickly, you can just go ahead and watch the process video below. Captions within the video will tell you what products I have used along the way.


1 – I start with 2 Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays – Lime & Fuschia and spray them onto TCW246 – Swiss Dots stencil separately and stamp these into my art journal randomly

2 – I adhere a single-ply patterned napkin onto the page with TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium

3 – I use TCW922 – Ethereal and TCW9004 – Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste to stencil some textured flowers over the napkin

4 – On a piece of watercolour card I stencil through the butterfly on TCW925 – Nature’s Circuitry to create a butterfly that I can cut out. I turn the stencil over to achieve matching wings. I fussy cut this out.

5 – I use watercolour washes and splatters with white paint and gloss sprays to create interest and depth within my newly created field of flowers

6 – I attach the butterfly to the page using strong glue so that the wings are able to move

7 – I choose some simple word stickers – ‘Heartfelt Blessings’

Have a great day!
