Hello everyone and welcome, specially also to new followers! Lovely to have you join me on my creative journey!
Today I am sharing a page in my water colour journal.
Artist Trading Post new challenge blog, and every time I have just missed the deadline.
When I saw the new theme Stencil Mania hosted my the amazing Julia, I was so inspired by all the fantastic DT samples, that I knew I just had to prioritize for it straight away. So here is my journal page, full of stencilling....
The background to this page started as a kind of mop up page from other projects, picking up various Lindy's Stampgang and Tim Holtz sprays.
Then because of the challenge theme I added texture and crackle pastes through various Martha Stewart and Memory Box stencils, and when dry I added some Golden Acrylic Paint and Walnut Stain Distress Spray over the raised bits and highlighted with treasure gold. Here are some close ups:
From that point on, the page kind of took on a life of its own and turned into a sort of Victorian Christmas page. (It was meant to have been something quite different originally)...
I am adding this to the Artist Trading Post Stencil Mania challenge
That's Crafty Anything Vintage challenge
Thanks for coming by to look and have a creative week!!!
