Birds and Circles

Sunday, October 4, 2015

I'm back with another Stencil Sunday project for you today.

Would love to have you join us for the challenge this month.  As always, it's an anything goes challenge that must be a mixed media piece...tags, art journal pages, home decor, etc....anything but a card.  The winner will receive a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate or 2 ARTplorations stencils. And the top picks receive an ARTplorations stencil of their choice.

Today, I'm sharing an art journal page.  I've used some Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap for my background and followed with some spray inks.  Using the ARTplorations Oh My Stars stencil and a PITT artist brush, I added some stars randomly in both the green and the orange. A few dribbles of India ink came next.  Then I added some circles with black gesso and different jar lids I keep in my stash.  I added some light modelling paste through the ARTplorations Bubbles stencil.  Next I used the ARTplorations Some Birds stencil and some Dylusions paint. Then, a few dabs of the same paint also added randomly.  Then, lots of shading/highlighting with a graphite pencil and my markers. I've used the Subway Art Builders:  Create stamp for the sentiments.  Just stamped the large sentiment on some heavy weight paper and cut it up to use throughout the two pages.

Check out all the amazing designs from the rest of the Design Team right here!
