Hi everyone I've been playing in my journal this week with just paint and stencils. You can can get great effects using minimal tools.
Here's what I did
Using a poppy foam stamp I created the background by stamping in 3 colours over the page. This wasn't really done randomly, as I wanted to ensure that you got to see the colours individually as well as a whole. I also wanted to leave some white, so that it didn't go too dark.
I dried the pages, and then using a stencil and black paint I created the feature first; this was so that I could see where would be best to stamp the sentiments, so that it looked balanced. I wanted the women to stand out more from the background so used a white Gelatos around their bodies which pushed them out from the background.
I also used some background stencils to give more interest. I loved the way this tied it all together, as before it wasn't working for me.
Here’s What I Used:
I hope you like these pages, as they were fun to make
take care for now
