Hello my crafty friends!! I was at a crop on Saturday, and after I finished up a few odds and ends on some projects, I decided to work on a page for my art journal. The name of my journal is No Rules, No Limits, and it is my creative work in progress!!
We are heading into a cold, grey, dreary season called winter! So, I thought I would create a page with sunshine on it! There is no title on this mixed media page, but I like to refer to it as "The Window". I love to look out my window and see sunshine! So here it is:
I first primed the page with gesso and then sprayed the page with some sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I then used some Prima stencils, the crackle one and then one that has really cool windows. I also found a sunburst stencil for the sunshine! To create texture with the stencils, I used molding paste, and a prima stamp for the brick. I also used some acrylic paints on the leaves. (I made my own stencils for the leaves!) On the window I mixed some perfect pearls into the molding paste. After drying it, I added some black acrylic paint and then wiped it off for that distressed look.
Here is a close up of the leaves I painted using my own stencils. There are prima flowers and pataloo flowers tucked in there along with some bling to just add a delicate touch! I'm not real good at clustering flowers, but I know that with practice i will get better!!
And here you can see the sunshine through my "window"!! I hope that you enjoy the sunshine through "The Window" and that this creation brings you inspiration!!
I hope that you have a great week!! Thank you so much for stopping by my little creative part of the world!! Keep on creating my friends!!
