‘Love’-an art journal spread.


I have a simple and easy art journal spread for you. I hope you like it.

Mixed media journal spread with the Crafter's Workshop stencils

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me the products to work with, but the opinions I share here, are solely my own.

I applied a layer of TCW9007 Clear Gesso to the journal pages and let it dry completely before applying acrylic paints.

Added a few paint marks with a brush and did a little bit of journaling with black permanent ink.

Next, I applied embossing ink through the TCW 922 Ethereal stencil and heat embossed the stars.

Added more texture with white acrylic paint and TCW5037 Small squares Cake and Cookie stencil.

Then, I applied TCW Gamboge stencil butter on the pages with a palette knife.

After that, I heat embossed the word ‘Love’ from the TCW527 Word Association stencil on a piece of tissue paper.

Finished the spread by adding a focal image and a quote.

That’s all for now.

Thank you for your precious time.

Take care,
