Hiya TCW friends!
– The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own –
The Crafter’s Workshop products used:
- TCW450 – Art Deco Leaves – 12×12 & 6×6
- TCW246 – Swiss Dot
- TCW9052 – Super Thick Gel
- TCW9064 – Turquoise Stencil Butter
- TCW9025 – Single palette knife
- TCW9051 – watercolor paper pack
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.
…here is a step-by-step so you can see how the page came together…
1 – Begin with a random, partial covering of yellow and red acrylic paint. Then, using TCW450 Art Deco Leaves 12 x 12 stencil, spray some magenta spray paint through the stencil.
2 – To create some texture, I pull away some of the spray paint color, by pressing some scrap paper to the paint whilst it is still a little wet. Then I use a lighter magenta acrylic paint and stencil through the stencil again.
3 – Next, I move to the other side of the journal page and stencil through with turquoise and teal acrylic paint.
4 – I grab the 6×6 of TCW450 Art Deco Leaves and stencil through, on the right hand side, a small section with the teal paint.
6 – Fussy cut various sizes of stamped flowers and arrange cross the centre of the page diagonally.
7 – Choose an alphabet stamp. Stamp a word out that you want to use and cut out the letters to create a handmade stencil. Using TCW9064 Turquoise stencil butter stencil through the words, create a stand-out, shiny, metallic title.
8 – Watercolor wash across the flowers in oranges, yellows and reds. Keep it light. Attach flowers and sentiment/word to the page with double sided foam squares.
I hope you have enjoyed this walkthrough of my art journal page. Hopefully it puts a smile on your face and gives you some inspiration to get into your own art journal to use some fab TCW stencils and pastes.
