Art… Glorious Art!
Today I created a quick background for an art chick that I drew in another journal page a while back. I like to sometimes collage in old illustrations that I rediscover and today this chicken wanted to come and play!
– The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own –
I used a number of stencils and pastes to create my page
- TCW855 – Linked Tiles
- TCW632 – Sweet Posey
- TCW832 – Script Words
- TCW886 – Shape Landscape (12×12 & 6×6)
- TCW9043 – Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste
- TCW9041 – Platinum Modeling Paste
- TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium
As usual, there is a process video, along with captions If you prefer to see a page come together quickly, click on the link below.
…here is the step-by-step…
1 – Begin with some Dina Wakley Media turquoise acrylic paint randomly painted across the journal page. Using a wet wipe to rub away some paint through stencil TCW855 – Linked Tiles
2 – Next, using DWM – Heather stencil through TCW632 – Sweet Posey a few different locations around the page
4 – Once the paste is somewhat dry, align the stencil back where it was and then stencil though adjacent to the dark silver modeling paste with the TCW9041 – Platinum Modeling Paste to create a two-toned effect.
5 – Dry off the modeling paste
6 – Using TCW886 – Shaped Landscape in 12×12 size spray through with some DWM gloss spray in Eggplant to create some dots around the page. Using the same stencil but in the smaller 6×6 size stencil through with DWM – Night
7 – Use DWM Lime gloss spray to splatter and drip paint onto the page
8 – Using a cut-out of my previously photocopied illustration I adhered the paper to the page using TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium
9 – Using watered down acrylics I singled out the two words “art” & “glorious” and made small speech bubbles around them.
10 – Some mark-making, pencil work and gel pen lines finish off the page
Hope you have enjoyed my quick walkthrough of my page and my process video. Hopefully you can find some inspiration to have a go with these TCW products yourself.
Until next time… have fun arting!
