Struggle by Moira Sutton


Donna Downey Signature Stencils – Alphabet Rerun  and Poppy Stems
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – Titanium White, Primary Cyan, Ultramarine, Green Gold and Black

We have all been playing with the new That’s Crafty! white/greyboard journals which come as a pack of one A4 and one 3 x 5 inches. Being board they can take a lot of punishment without warping so using paints, texture and stencils is a joy.
I took one sheet from the A4 Journal set and gave it a coat of gesso, it’s optional but I always do. Next I pounced black paint through the alphabet stencil. 
Next I added dabs of the two blue and green gold paints to the board and used a baby wipe to move them around so there are patches of distinct colour but the whole has a covering. I pounced with the white paint through the Poppy stencil to create the flowers and when dry added a further layer lower down with the green gold.

Finally the quote was stamped in white paint.
