Layers of Color with Natalie May

Hey there Stencil Fans.

I hope that you are happy & healthy in this crazy world and getting some paint on your hands regularly!

Today I am sharing a bright art journal page that I created in my Dina Wakley journal.

Last week I received a delivery from a local Aussie company, ScrapFX with some exciting new designs and couldn't wait to use them.  The images are designed by my talented friend Michelle Logan for this company and they have released the 'Confetti Sisters' as an A4 sheet ready to go straight onto your projects! Cool hey?

Here are a few simple steps to re-create this page.

I started with dry brushing on a couple of colors across the page to create a base before pulling out my stencils.

Using Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, I lightly added Rouge to the page through the Soulful Scribbles Dots Dash Stencil and then used it as a stamp to transfer the excess paint.

Using a blending tool, I used a little paint through the 6x6 stencil from the StencilClub release from October 2016 (this is one of my most used designs) ... I love the little shapes!

Next, I added some Turquoise Gloss Spray with the Circles Layer Me Stencil and then used it as a stamp to transfer the excess paint again - I think this technique works great for adding more pattern to the page.

The X Rows stencil was perfect used on an angle to add some crosses in white over the top.

The layering was finished with a few words around the page using black archival ink through the Fridge Poetry Stencil.

I completed the page by cutting a few circles from book paper and adhering them, adding a few splatters of gloss spray and a few doodly scribbles!

Layering stencils can work really well in art journals and I am loving the result!

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!

Natalie May
