She Will Stay Strong by Lynne Moncrieff



The Dina Wakley Stencilled Women immediately caught my eye and I was eager to play with it, the result of the play time is this journal page.


Distress Paint Black Soot, Picket Fence
Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paint Hallow Sea, Spiced Raspberry, Tuberose
Artist Palette Knife  (or old credit card)
Extras: Lace, paper flowers, tissue paper


Layer torn pieces of lace and paper flowers to watercolour paper. Apply paint and Gesso – between layers mist with water before heat setting and applying another layer of paint with palette knife.

Stencil woman’s face onto page with Black Soot. Heat set. 

Stamp Stay Strong onto tissue paper. Discard Stay and adhere Strong onto woman’s face with Gel Medium.

Randomly stamp handwriting and textures with StazOn.

Paint polka dots of various sizes and flick pink Twinkling H20 onto panel.

Journal around the woman’s head.

Swipe Black Soot onto edges of panel. 


Until next time,
