If you’ve been awake for the last couple of years… chances are you’ve had a case of sadness, maybe even depression. I am there with you friend! Life has been far from normal and there’s lots of things we’ve had to learn and adapt to. I hope happiness is one of those things for you! I hope this project encourages you to create something bright, colorful and overall happy!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
For the first layer of the background in my art journal, I sprayed a mix of yellow and orange spray inks (Ranger Ink Dylusions Lemon Zest and Squeezed Orange) through 12×12 TCW 936 Messy Writing Stencil. I did this for both the right and left side of each page.
On the right side of the layout, I glued down my main focal image (His Palette Within 017 Printable). On the left side of the layout I spread a generous layer of TCW stencil butters (Turquoise, Ocean, Orchid, Fuchsia) through 12×12 TCW575 Joyful Sunflower Stencil with a palette knife. I used the same colors on the right side of the page on top of the focal image but I used a cosmetic instead of a palette knife for a softer touch.
Stencil butters used:
On the bottom of the right side of the layout, I added a layer of dark blue acrylic paint through 12×12 TCW586 Raven Mosaic Stencil and spread the stencil a little bit towards the middle of the page.
