Art Journal Page – Beautiful Thing

Good morning TCW Crafters,

Going for an aged, vintage look within my journal today. Taking a little bit of inspiration from some previous projects. Using wonderful stencil butters and stencils thanks to The Crafter’s Workshop. Featuring another of my favourite stencils (TCW944 -Monarch Journal). Hope you enjoy what I create today!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own

The Crafter’s Workshop products used within this page:

TCW944 – Monarch Journal
TCW9080 – Champagne Stencil Butter
TCW9037 – Grecian Gold Stencil Butter
TCW9038 – Antique Gold Stencil Butter
TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium
TCW9025 – Plastic Palette knife

If you enjoy seeing a page materialise 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 – Using a small Dina Wakely kraft journal, I stick down some vintage ledger paper using TCW9011 – Matte Gel Medium

2 – Stencil through TCW944 – Monarch Journal stencil with gold stencil butters. I have used TCW9080 – Champagne Stencil Butter and TCW9037 – Grecian Stencil Butter but TCW9038 – Antique Stencil Butter would also work well to give some variation to the colour.

3 – Dry thoroughly. Pool watercolours across the stencilling in vintage and aged colours. Browns, Payne’s Grey and deep turquoise to represent the tarnish of copper.

4 – Dry thoroughly and add a vintage styled sentiment. Edge the page with Archival ink pad in grey.

I hope this aged journal page gives you a bit of inspiration to get you sitting at your craft table! would love to see what you create with the fab stencils and modelling pastes from The Crafter’s Workshop.
