StencilGirl Free Your Mind Art Journal Page

Hi all

I created  this simple art journal page using the new stencil by StencilGirl. 

I coated the page with gesso and when that has dried, i spritzed ink over the top

I used blue acrylic paint over the stencil with the faces and then turned the stencil over and used the other side to get a mirror image. I then put a bit of magenta on my finger and stamped away.

Canvas Corp Brands Butterflies Artist Trading Coins

Products used

Baseboard baby girl pink



Spring Showers Butterflies on Ivory Paper

Gypsy Moments 8 x 8 Paper Pad 
Express Yourself Sheet

The Blank Page Muse Hearty Doodles 

Cut out a set of three 2. 5 inch circles and then paint with gesso.

Spray over with Firefly Chalkboard mist spray.

Once the one layer has dried, you can add another colour over the top which for my second layer wast Valencia.

The last colour i used is Baby Girl Pink which is my favourite colour.

I used Glimmer Glaze to colour in the butterflies and wings.

I stamped over the backgrounds with mini texture stamps and used a mix of red and orange permanent ink so that each layer will show through.

I inked the edges using a makeup sponge to create a soft border.

I placed each piece on to the coin and once i was happy with the arrangement i glued them down and added a mini peg for the body.

I cut up the tiny words from the Gypsy Moments 8 x 8 pad and glued them on to the coins. I then added gems to finish off the coins.
