create - The Crafter's Workshop DT May

Thursday, May 21, 2015

Hi there!  I had my second post for The Crafter's Workshop yesterday and shared this LO.
After sifting thru all the new stencils, I knew I HAD to use this one called 'Flow Chart'
to document my journey into Art Journaling!

I just love the graphics, the scale and obviously the word 'CREATE!'
The Crafter's Workshop - 12 x 12 Doodling Templates - Flow Chart
I started with a photo of some text play from my journal and the 12x12 'Flow Chart' stencil.

I am a little obsessed with ombre colors and this allowed me to use lots of mists while keeping
the color palette to just a few tones.  I started with the darkest color at the top and worked
my way down, holding the mist farther away towards the bottom of the page.

After the misting dried, I used black distress ink to stencil some of the numbers and postmark
from the 'Mini Ravenscape' stencil over a few of the misted blocks of color.

I used this delicious gold embossing paste over a couple words from the
'Mini Word Association' stencil to add some texture.

I punched a few pieces of patterned paper to lay over a couple of the color blocked areas as well.
Finally, I layered some more patterned paper, tracing paper and gold thread under my photo
and tucked in a couple other embellishments.

Some doodling, washi and black India ink splatters finished my page!  I know this is a
stencil that will be getting lots of use!!
Thanks for stopping by the Blog today!  Hope you are inspired to create and have an amazing day!
