My latest obsession, besides art journaling, is stencils. I can't seem to get enough of them. This months challenge over at Inspiration Journal is Marvelous Masks and Spectacular Stencils. I of course had to play along in my art journal. I am trying hard to make some meaningful Art journal pages and so I wrote in permanent pens various words that mean something to me.
I then added some color with Dylusions Spray ink over various stencils. I used Balzer Designs Scallop Flowers and Chevron Arrows, Donna Downey Stencil number 922351, and Dylusions Chequered Dots Stencils.
With all of this layering it is a bit hard to make out the stencils and words, but that is what I love about it. It is kind of a happy mess!
Next I drew in my heart and used Broken China Distress paint along with some white acrylic paint to fill the heart in. Again I love how you can still make out the stencils in the background.
I created my own heart shaped mask out of a leftover piece of cardboard. I then stamped around the heart to shade it a bit with a Stamp from the Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge Stamp set.
To finish the page off I used some Tim Holtz stamps and went around the outside of the page and added a saying the heart.
