Happy Wednesday everyone! Do you ever have one of those weeks where you want to just be left alone and live in your own little world? I did this past week! So, to get my frustrations out, I close my studio door, turn up the tunes and art journal! And of course, I used a bunch of my favorite products from The Crafters Workshop! This always puts me in a better frame of mind!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own.
TCW Product Used for this page:
To start, I wanted to make some planet type shapes, so I grabbed some black cardstock and my favorite Stencil Butter colors… TCW9063 Stencil Butter – Ocean Blue, TCW9065 Stencil Butter Fushia, TCW9066 Stencil Butter – Orchid and TCW883 Circle Jumble stencil. I used TCW9025 Plastic Palette Knife and spread all 3 colors over the stencil onto the black cardstock. I let this air dry for an hour or so.
Once it dried, I cut out around the circle using scissors! Here’s a close up of the gorgeous stencil butters! Just yummy! I am getting in a better mood just playing with them.
I then used a half sheet of TCW9051 Watercolor Paper Pack and added some TCW9001 White Gesso using an old credit card over the entire page. Just yummy.
For the next step, after drying the gesso with a heat gun, I used some Paynes Grey acrylic paint and sponged it through TCW2301 Harlequin Slimline Stencil . I covered the whole page with this.
Using Ken Oliver’s Spritz Bottle, I watered down some blue/green acrylic paint, and applied this over the harlequin stenciled area of my page. I also added some white splatters of ink here and there. (Did you notice my circles in the top right corner…. used those colors first, but had to go back to my faves for this one! LOL!).
For every night sky, one does need stars, so using TCW9037 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and TCW2302 Start Sparkle Slimline Stencil; I used TCW plastic palette knife and spread the paste through the stencil randomly over my page.
Now to assemble my page! I used TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium to adhere my cut out stenciled circles to the page. Once these were dried, I used a Black PITT pen to outline and smudge around the circles.
I added my little guy, some washi and a sentiment. After making this, I was in a much happier place! My desk was messy, there was paint on my hands, and now I can play with all the new stencils I just received from The Crafter’s Workshop! (more about this next time!). Do you feel better after you’ve done some messy play?? Do tell!
Thanks for taking the time to see my project for today!
We would love to see your projects made with TCW products!
