Time for 2018 Art Journal Spread

by admin

Happy New Year Creative Souls! My journey with the Scrap FX Art Journal continues in the new year and this month I have used the Petal Pattern Stencil together with the Steampunk Key Corner & “extraordinary” from the #surreal wording set.

I love that you can use the Scrap FX stencils so many ways. You can use them to mist over, to create pattern, so draw around etc. I used two techniques on this spread. First I applied heavy white gesso trough the Petal Pattern stencil to create texture. Then when dry I used a sponge and black stamping ink to create the black bold pattern. I don´t care that the pattern is a bit “broken” that gives more character and interest in my meaning.

The Steampunk Key corner is really beautiful and I wanted to use it on a project that would let it stand a bit for itself. I found it to be perfect in on corner of my spread. I followed up the metallic pink splatters with painting the chipboard piece in the same color. Makes it really pop.

I had the intention to paint the #surreal wording as well, but decided it would look better natural – love how it turned out with the black text strip above.
