Getting away from white backgrounds can be intimidating for some. I remember in art school I had a professor who banned white paper in her studio- she would only use Kraft, gray or black. She said it made the mind think 10x harder in terms of perspective and shading and it would make for a better artist. It did make me a better artist! But…… I still like my rainbow paints to really shine on bright white paper. This layout today features the new Kraft art journal by Dina Wakley and the wonderful stencil butters that shine no matter what color paper they’re on.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
Just to the left of the fern, I applied TCW9063 Ocean Blue Stencil Butter with a sponge through 12×12 TCW586 Raven Mosaic Stencil.
On the sides of the layout, I applied TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste with a palette knife through 12×12 TCW454 Specimens Stencil.
On the left side of the layout, I applied black acrylic paint with a sponge dauber through both 12×12 and 6×6 TCW968 Summer Meadow Stencil.
Other stencils used (mostly with black acrylic paint): TCW949 Dragonfly Collage Stencil , TCW361 Tiny Circles Stencil, TCW384 Well Rounded Stencil, TCW909 Quadrangle Fan Stencil, TCW964 Encircled Stencil, TCW260 Mariposas Stencil
