Once again...starting with blank pages... You can see here that I have parchment paper between my pages. This is to protect the rest of the journal as I get a bit carried away with paint, ink, and more!!!
...and you can see that my parchment paper is very well loved.
I wanted to play with resist techniques. So using Extra Thick Gloss Medium and ColourArte Silks, I created the color I wanted to use with my stencil. The Gloss Medium is what will resist the other mediums used.
I used the Silks to add color to my Gloss Medium. Otherwise it would of dried clear.
Now time to stencil...
After spreading the yellow medium out, I decided to shake it up a little more and added some orange to the stenciling....
I loved how it turned out...
I had quite a bit of medium on my stencil, so I once I pulled it up, I put it face down on the opposite page and used a brayer to "stamp" the stencil on to the page.
This really made me happy! I then used my heat gun to dry it. This side took a lot less time to dry vs. the other side. It was not as thick.
Now this is where the magic begins! Using the Twinkling H2O's from ColourArte, I washed color over the pages. I was able to wipe it off of all my stenciling.
See how the stenciling resisted the Twinkling H2O's?
I then used another one of my favorite stencils and Distress Ink and created rays.
A little gesso to create a place for my quote...
Both sides are now washed in that beautiful color!
Now after this, I just started playing. Adding some Dylusions Paint, Tissue Paper, Washi Tape and a few photos....
Until next time loves... Happy Creating!
