Hello TCW Crafters
Pretty starflowers in my journal today. I really love this stencil – TCW945 – Starflower Net – I have used it over and over since I got it. Today I pair it up with TCW2317 – Fence Grid, some embossing powder and my DWM Kraft journal. Hope you enjoy what I created today!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own

If you enjoy seeing a page created 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 how the page came together step-by-step…
1 – Begin with some blank pages. Spray stencil TCW945 – Starflower Net with Dina Wakley Media gloss spray in rouge. Use the stencil as a stamp and flip it over onto the blank page to leave a clear pink impression of TCW945 – Starflower Net. Make a few of these pages to fussy cut later.
2 – Begin in a journal. I have used my Dina Wakley Media Kraft journal but a white paged journal would work equally as well. I use TCW2317 – Fence Grid Slimline Stencil and stencil through with embossing ink. Use a light pink embossing powder and heat to emboss the image across the page.
3 – I take some watercolours and loosely paint across the embossed image to give some colour to the background. I did this randomly with deep pink and a light purply-pink (that’s a colour…right?). I mop off the excess colour from the embossed image.
4 – Splatter some fluorescent yellow splatters lightly across the page. Dry off the page completely.
5- Fussy cut some circles of starflowers from the stamped pages that were completed earlier.
6 – With watercolour pencils, colour in the background of each of the circles of starflowers. I used orange and blended it out to yellow toward the edges of the circles
7 – Try and find a pleasing situation for all your pieces across the page – this definitely took me longer than it should have. I pfaff about it the video for a while 🙂 Attach all pieces onto the page with 3D foam squares
8 – Add a sentiment or two and add some blue to the centre flowers of each fussy cut circle of starflowers.
