“Enjoy Life” Mixed Media Art journal

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I am taking you for a bicycle ride in the forest. Here, autumn is not going to be long and I love its shimmering colors so much. There are several stencils on this page, TCW243Ferns, TCW808 Leaf Collection, TCW464 Dancing Leaves, TCW450 Art Deco Leaves, TCW926 Bubble Rebound, TCW898 Fancy Mandala (12×12), TCW899 Striped Mandala (12X12).


I start by making the background with TCW926 Bubble Rebound and some TCW9058 Wisteria ColorSparx. I put wisteria directly on my wet stencil which I return to my page.

On the other side, I put TCW898 Fancy Mandala 12X12 on the page before applying Wisteria and Orange ColorSparx, then I spray some water .

I print the same stencil on the other side with the colors left on.

I always have an Art Journal page or watercolor paper handy to print the stencils where there is ink left on them. This can always be used to start a page or a card background.

When it’s dry I apply some Distress Oxide inks in different colors all over the page.

I use Wisteria ColorSparx on TCW450 Art Deco Leaves and apply it on the top of the page. I use the same stencil with Green Distress Oxide.

I make additional drawings with TCW899 Striped Mandala 12X12, TCW464 Dancing Leaves and some Distress Oxide.

I use TCW243 Ferns and TCW808 Leaf Collection with TCW9044 Light & Fluffy modelling Paste on TCW9051 Watercolor paper. After drying, I color them with watercolor paint and cut them out.

I adhere the leaves and ferns, as well as vintage images found on Pinterest and a scrapbooking paper for the pumpkin.
You will find these images HERE on my Pinterest board at your disposal.

Here is another preview. I stamp the title “Enjoy Life”.

Here is the result, thanks for stopping by today, I hope my tutorial inspired you! Do not hesitate to leave me a small comment, thank you!
