The Love of Family

If you follow my blog you will have known that this particular week was a sad one. So I decided to go with some bright and cheerful colors for my week in review spread and look on the positive moments from the week.

I started out by spreading white gesso through a stencil. I then added a wash of  bright acrylic paints. You can see the stenciled design subtly peeking through.

I then added more stenciling on top of the colors.

Next I added in my planner page from the week. The planner page was painted with grey acrylic paint and then I used the same colors from the background to add splatters.

I then added in some happy photos from the week along with some rub-ons, torn paper, and embellishments.

Lastly I added in my saying with a black pen, acrylic paint, and painted letters. Family was the bright spot in this week. Hugs and Love were definitely being spread around.

I am submitting this to 2 challenges. The Craft Stamper Magazine is all about stenciling. Over at Inspiration Journal it is Love is in the Air. Be sure to stop in to both challenges for even more creativity. As always thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :)
