Hi there, I have a bright and jazzy journal page in a rather retro 60s style to share today which is the perfect way to express your inner diva.
That’s Crafty! 8x8 Stencils – Tina, Alphabet
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – Carbon Black, Primary Magenta
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylics – Haystack, Lavender, Pumpkin Soup, Tango
Scraps of Gelli printed paper, or you could use scrapbook paper
Old Store or Credit Card
I first coloured the page using the orange and yellow paints, which I applied to the surface with an old store card in a random fashion until it was roughly covered.
I then placed the Tina stencil on the page and holding it down firmly with one hand, used a combination of stencil brush and a fairly dense sponge to apply the Lavender paint to make the head image – you can probably tell how much I love this stencil as she’s already featured on another of my journal pages – I just love her waves of hair which are so versatile.
Next, I stencilled on the Groovy text using the alphabet stencil which is fab as it’s rather funky to make words by masking off around the letters you need and as you can see, the different sizes give a rather quirky and fun look. I stencilled in black for a bold look.
I stamped a number of flowers using just the head of the larger flower in the Beki set, stamping on scraps of bright Gelli printed papers from my bits box. You could just as easily use plain bright paper or scrapbook paper or stamp on white card and colour them if you wish – the choice is yours!
I cut the flowers out, shaped them a little with an embossing ball tool and added them to the head image with foam tape for dimension.
To finish my page, I used the Dinky flowers stencil to apply a flower pattern around the edges with the magenta paint.
Have a great weekend and see you next week.
