Hi Crafty people!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a blog post, so I thought I would share my latest art journal page and how I made it. My scrapbook is from Trimcraft.
What I used
- Faber Castle Gelatos
- Prima Marketing Oil Pastels And Stamps
- TCW stencil – mini stitched art
- Visible Image stamp – Outside the Lines
- Gold ink pad
- Stencils I made on my Silhouette
- Crushed grape dylusions paint
I started my page using the gelatos. I used pinks and purples on one side and greens and blues on the other side. Making sure there was a lighter patch in the middle. I added lines of yellow to each side to add a bit of contrast.
On my Silhouette I had made a circle stencil and a coffee stain stencil, which I thought I could use on my layout.
I put the circle stencils in the middle of the page and used some purple dylusions paint in the circles with my finger, going down the page. I dried this with my heat tool and added white gesso on top. Using my oil pastels I stated building up the colour with a dark blue and black to make the circles look more round and dimensional.
To make them stand out I used black oil pastel around the edge, smudging the lines, to add a grey colour around the outside of the circles. I built up the colour until I was happy.
I used my stencils to add a bit on interest on the two coloured parts. Using the coffee stain and TCW stencil, with white gesso and a gold ink pad. I also stamped on the circles with gold ink with a round musical stamp from Prima.
On some white card stock I stamped the Visible Image stamp ‘Creative People Colour Outside The Lines’ I thought this was quite fitting for this page. This finished off the page quite nicely!
Thanks for reading and see you soon for another crafty project
