Hi everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! I do hope you all get chocolates and lots of love this time of year, especially chocolates! Today I am sharing an art journal spread in my Travelers Notebook. I have a ton of different journals and tend to spread the love around in each of them!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
- TCW9005 Thick Modeling paste
- TCW2303 Rock Wall Slimline Stencil
- TCW9025 Plastic Palette knife
- TCW9001 White Gesso
- TCW889 Dash V stencil
To start off, I used TCW9005 Thick Modeling paste and applied it to the edges of my pages using TCW Plastic Palette knife and the brand new TCW2303 Rock Wall Slimline Stencil. This stencil fits perfectly in my Travelers Notebook and the stencil is perfect for this theme.
I then used TCW9001 White Gesso and applied a layer over my entire spread using a brush.
For the next step, I took some acrylic paints in Titan Buff, Burnt Sienna, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Golden and Paynes Grey and first applied a layer of the Titan Buff using a brush, and then started layering the rest of the paint using a wipe, until I was happy with the looks I wanted.
Once I like the colors blended together, I used some coffee archival ink and applied it using a sponge through the X’s on the TCW889 Dash V stencil. I also sponged some Paynes Grey acrylic paint through the same pattern.
To finish off my spread, I added a few black splatters using some ink, some washi, a photo and a sentiment! Love rocks this month!
Thanks for taking the time to see my project for today!
We would love to see your projects made with TCW products!
