So, another practice in white space in one of my Dylusions Art Journal.
Again, I started by laying down some gesso- then did some circle stencils with fluorescent paints- the positive and negative side of the stencil. Then used gesso to layer some Julie Fei-Fan Balzer Funky Tag stencil.
Some more gesso smeared around followed by some stamping with Michelle Ward’s shutter stamps- some green gold Golden acrylic paint-and magenta Ultrech acrylic on the inside and outside corners. I did some random pseudo writing with my uni-ball- some dots of Liquid Pearls and finally blobs of black india ink spread around with a straw. A few other miscellaneous stamping and voila!
I have prolly left a step or two out-but you get the idea I hope.
Here are a few other photos including some close-ups.
Thanks for playing!
All of these pages are done in my Dyan Reavely art journal( which is awesome!).
So today I find myself with quite a backlog of work that hasn’t been blogged, so instead of doing a post for every piece, I figured I would just post some pics on two or three posts instead. I hope you enjoy them!
While working in my Dylusions Art Journal, I had an epiphany. At least it was for me. I mean, there’s a better than average chance that someone way better than me has already thought of this, but I was really psyched when I thought of it. So, what’ s this earth shattering idea? Embossing with a stencil! So easy. Just lay your stencil down( in this case I usedJulie Fei-Fan Balzer’s heart stencils and a broken diamond stencil). I used a Versamark pad, but you could use an embossing pen as well to color it in. I then applied white and satin pearl embossing powders and voila!
Then I decided to do a resist with the big heart ,so I applied some gelatos and gave it a wipe with a baby wipe. On the second page I tried distress inks but I didn’t care for it, so I settled on ink sprays (October Afternoon) dried it then gave it a wipe. When I was done with that, I did some close sprays to get a drip effect. I don’t know how done I am with these pages, but I really wanted to share my idea with you while it was still plainly visible on the pages.
I hope you have learned something new. Now go play with your stencils and let me know if you have some creative ways to use them!
