StencilGirl® Art Journaling

We have arrived at the height of summer, at least if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, and it is time to celebrate our gardens. That is also what I tried to do on this spread, using one of the stencils from StencilGirl® Product that is so perfect in itself that I wanted to use it as is.

Here is the tutorial:

1.     Thickly gesso two facing pages in your art journal. I used the large Dylusions journal. While the gesso is still wet use a pastry brush or a comb to make patterns in the gesso.

2.     Apply acrylic paint to the pages with a brush and remove it again with a baby wipe through one of the patterns of the April 2022 StencilClub.

3.     Cover the middle of the pages with white acrylic Paint using a brush. Some of the background will come through and that’s fine.

4.     Using stencil Mid Century Modern Circles Pattern Mask, outline the pattern with a permanent black marker. I used Pigma Macron fine line o2.

5.     Colour in the patterns using paint markers such as Posca or Artistra.

6.     Using stencil Chicken Wire Mask and an 8 x 10” gelli plate with black acrylic paint take 2 or 3 prints on deli paper.

7.     Tear the deli papers made in step 6 into small pieces and apply them around the spread like a fence, using matte medium.

8.     Use a Dymo write or whatever you prefer to add text to the page

9.     Use a permanent black inkpad to edge the pages black.
