Hello everyone! I do hope you are enjoying your New Year! It is still cold and snowy in Southern Ontario and I am dreaming of flowers! So what better way to get out of these January blues than to make a flowery art journal spread for today!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
- TCW9055 ColorSparx Berry Punch
- TCW9051 Watercolor paper pack
- TCW Spritz Bottle
- TCW2208 Precious Sentiments clear stamps
- TCW2202 Love You clear stamps
- TCW9002 Black Gesso
- TCW9025 Plastic Palette Knife
- TCW9066 Orchid Stencil Butter
- TCW904 Petal Burst Stencil
I decide to first use a sheet of TCW9051 Watercolor paper to start making some flowers. If you have never used this watercolor paper… you have to! It is thick, holds a ton of mediums and doesn’t curl when dried! I added some spots of TCW9055 ColorSparx Berry Punch randomly over the page and spritzed over these using TCW Spritz Bottle.
I spritzed until I was happy with the colors. I set it aside overnight to dry on its own.
Once It was dry, I used TCW2208 Precious Sentiments clear stamps and TCW2202 Love You clear stamps and stamped some flower images onto the watercolor paper. I used Versamark and heat set them using some black embossing powder.
I then fussy cut out the flowers to use later on my art journal spread.
I decided to use my black Dylusions 8” x 8” art journal for this, and applied a layer of TCW9002 Black Gesso over the entire page using a brush.
For the background, I used the TCW904 Petal Burst stencil and TCW9066 Orchid Stencil Butter. I first taped off one of the petal bursts on the stencil and using my TCW9025 Plastic Palette Knife, spread some TCW9066 Orchid Stencil Butter through it and randomly covered over my background.
After those dried, I added some white splatters with white ink and doodled some dots around the petal burst and inside of the stamped flowers.
I added my little lady with her snarky sentiment and voila! Done.
Thanks for taking the time to see my project for today!
We would love to see your projects made with TCW products!
