Hi, Everyone! Michele Kosciolek here! I am quite honored to have been invited to be a guest over at StencilGirl® Talk, thank you so much!
In the past year or so my StencilGirl® collection has grown by leaps and bounds and I definitely have my favorites, four of which you will see in today’s project.
Today I am sharing a journal spread, the very first in a new handmade journal I am putting together. This journal will be all two page spreads.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper and covered it with white gesso. I did some random painting with Dina Wakley paints, turquoise, olive and elephant and with the stencil and a baby wipes I removed some of the paint. This created my background.
I added some piece of old dictionary page and stenciled in black paint. Using more DWM paint; blushing, buff, ruby, cheddar, sky and my favorite paint brush…my finger, I painted in the face.
With and I stenciled, in black, random letters and numbers exploding out of the top of the face. These are then outlined with Posca Paint Pens.
I hand lettered the quote with my Posca Paint Pens.
So there you have it, the finished pages. Thanks for visiting!!
