Spirt of the Woodland A4 Journal Part IV by Lynne



Thoughts .... the final page from the That's Crafty! A4 Journal.



The background was prepared in the same way as previous pages, with Gesso first, followed by multi-surface paints and in this instance, only a hint of walnut ink.

With the A4 Word Search Stencil, Black Pearl Ink and a damp cloth, random stencilling took place.  I was obviously aware that the use of a damp cloth to stencil with, would not provide a crisp stencilled outcome.

Behind the area where the tree branches would be stamped, again with a damp cloth, this time to remove some of the painted area, creating an almost moon-like effect and it also brings another layer to the background for interest.

From the Circles Stencil, a small circle stencilled and cut out from painted cotton rag paper (I tend to keep a box of scraps which I will stencil various sized circles to have to hand).

The word, Thoughts, was stencilled from the A4 Words Stencil which was so perfectly paired with one of my text stamps, The woods will still your thoughts, repeatedly stamped around the tree area of this page.

Thank you for your visit to this post.

Just to bring your attention that if you are looking to begin a new journal, That's Crafty have an extensive range of styles available.
