Counting Today - The Crafter's Workshop Art Journal
Friday, November 13, 2015
Hi there crafty friends! For my post today, I am sharing an art journal spread to remind myself about the importance of today & being thankful for it! I really enjoyed this project because I just went for it without too much of a plan.
I used the 5 stencils below, but one of them I used both the 6×6 and 12×12 of the same stencil.
I started with lots of mists on top of the pages I prepped with gesso.
I used the music notes stencil around the edges with a yellow ink and white modeling paste with the Sequin Waste Bit stencil.
I added another layer of paint over the modeling paste to help it blend in and added some of the larger starburst pattern with a silver mist. After finding my quote and printing it out, I was inspired to use the large numbers stencil using a finger dauber and chalk ink.
After adhering my quote, I stencil the three hearts with black archival ink. I used several different black and whitepaint pens to add some definition and doodles around the spread.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope this inspires you to make a fun project too! Carpe Diem!
