Tammy (aka Tambarambaa) back today to share another fun page in my Art Journal…….
As usual, it’s full of color – and what could be more colorful than rainbows right? They are such a reminder to me that there is magic all around us. They always make me think that good things are coming…..so I wish for you rainbows, rainbows, rainbows!!
TCW provided me with awesome goodies to play with, but the art and the opinions are solely my own.
Let’s take a look at how this came together….
I began by adding TCW9001 White Gesso to my Large Dylusions Art Journal.
Once dry, I began with red paint (I used Dylusions for the vibrancy) and drew a large arc shape. Whilst wet I laid down the NEW stencil TCW932 Peruvian Lily and working in sections wiped a wet baby wipe through the stencil to remove some of the paint.
I then repeated this with orange paint using TCW424 Mod Spirals Stencil.
Time to move onto yellow and this time I used the dots from TCW886 Shape Landscape.
I basically continued this, ensuring my arcs got smaller and smaller, moving through the colors of the rainbow.
I also chose different styles of stencils – florals, spots, and different patterns making sure if I used two different florals they weren’t right alongside one another.
This helps to define the colored sections.
This is the result – now it’s time to tidy it all up.
I do this with a Black Paint Pen – I use Life of Colour pens. I outline in between each color with a thicker pen, and then add scribbles with a finer pen.
I then used this NEW stamp – TCW2204 When it Rains and some black Archival Ink- I stamped the stars into the rainbow, using both the clustered stars and the trailing stars.
I also added in a few of those cute little clouds.
I stamped that gorgeous quote into top left hand corner….
This is the result…..
I decided to add some hand drawn stars, but didn’t trust myself, so I grabbed TCW2302 Star Sparkle Slimline Stencil again.
I added a black border and some flicks of paint….
Now the only thing missing was a title – I’ve recently purchased stencil TCW686 Julie’s Words – it’s perfect for adding in titles.
The one that says ‘Believe in Magic’ is made for this, so I placed it onto my rainbow and sponged black paint through it using a makeup sponge.
Once dry, I added some white paint pens to highlight it.
I love it!! So much fun to create!
That’s it from me today! I hope it has inspired you to get out your paint and stencils and create your own rainbow……let’s fill the world with color and magic!!
