Good morning TCW Crafters,
Today, I create a pretty girl with a simple dress and leafy fronds in her hair using two stencils and some shimmery turquoise stencil butter. I hope you like what I have created and it brings a little sunshine to your day…. Enjoy!
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:
TCW959 – Rainbow Branch Circle
TCW965 – Barberry Buds
TCW9064 – Turquoise Stencil Butter
TCW9002 – Black Gesso
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 – Begin by painting large shapes into the journal page. Red for the dress, dark blue for the hair and a light pastel mint blue for the background.
2 – Using TCW959 – Rainbow Branch Circle stencil over the red withTCW9002 – Black Gesso to give the dress a gorgeous all-over pattern. Stencil over this black pattern with some of the dark blue from the hair aswell.
3 – Moving up to the hair area, use TCW965 Barberry Buds. Firstly use a light flat colour with the large size of the stencil, then follow that and stencil through with a teal acrylic.
4 – Using a Palette knife (TCW9025) stencil through TCW965 – Barberry Buds again, this time using TCW9064 – Turquoise stencil butter. Dry this layer thoroughly.
5 – To add some details to the hair, stencil through the smallest size of TCW965 – Barberry Buds using a bright magenta purple. Add some final touches with Prismacolors and Carbothello pencils.
6 – Paint over the face in a chosen colour and draw in a face… I try not to pfaff about too much on the video – always impossible – so I have sped it up. If you want to see me draw the face you may need to slow the video down quite a bit!
7 – Finally add a small amount of hand lettering. Any kind of lettering can be added – even stenciled on for the finishing touch
I hope this pretty journal page brings a smile to your face and a bit of motivation to get you sitting at your craft table! Would love to see what you decide to create with the wonderful stencils and stencil butters from The Crafter’s Workshop!
