Flowers in my Art Journal

I tried something different with my art journal last night (Monday).  And, it turned out OK.

I laid down a flower stencil on both sides and stenciled with the green.  Next I used the cut-out part of a homemade stencil, laid it down in the center and stenciled the blue around it to get a "window" effect for the flowers.  Then I took a micron pen and drew in the flowers from the first stencil.  Then I painted them.  Next, I used the homemade stencil to outline around the "window" and painted a shadow around it.  Then I printed out the verse on a 4x6 index card, cut it apart, outlined each piece and glued them down.  I sprayed a gold glimmer mist over the whole thing.  That is what showing up as shiny in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Art and Silhouettes

I like the look of using silhouettes on art journaling pages.  So, today I made some.  I found some pictures on the internet that I could extract from the background, filled them with white, stroked them with black to outline and then printed them on some $store manilla folders.  Then I used an exacto knife to cut them out.  This did 2 things.  One, I can use the cut out as a mask to add a sillhouette to my creations.  Two, I now have a stencil to use on my creations.

 Cutting the figures out was a pain, but I like the results!  :D

Here is an art journal page I did using the bottom stencil shown above.

Thanks for dropping by!
