Dream, Discover, Create by Alison Hall


Hello Crafters! It's Alison here today, with a textural art journal project.


That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Believe, Enchanted
Dylusions Paint - Black Marble, After Midnight, White Linen, Postbox Red
Teabag Papers, Make-up Sponge, Stencil Brush, Paintbrush


1. I wanted to create lots of texture on this page, so I started off by adhering a few empty teabag papers to my journal page. Then I applied Grunge Paste through the That's Crafty! Big Floral Stencil. I covered the whole page with a coat of After Midnight Dylusion's paint, then used my finger to apply some Black Marble paint to highlight the stencilling.  

2. I stencilled the word 'Discover', and also the Dinky Stencil words 'Dream' and 'Create', using Black Marble paint. When the two small words were dry, I stencilled over the top with White Linen paint, moving the stencils slightly to create a shadow from the black paint beneath.

3. I used a white pen to add highlights to the word 'Discover', then flicked my page with watered down red and white paint.

4. To finish, I sponged the edges of my page with black paint.

Wishing you all a creative day,

Alison x
