This spring the DT at Swescrap did an inspirational piece from one of her Art Journal pages. This is my version of...
... this page.
I just love it! :) Love the bold colors, her stencils that she designed (!) and the theme of the page. Thanks for the inspiration, Nat! :)
My page was almost a CASE, that's how much I love it. :)
I started out by covering the whole spread with white tissue paper and mod podge. Love the texture that it creates. :) Then I colored it with Distress Paints in three nuances of blue. I misted it with water before it was dry, letting the paint run across the page creating this under-water feeling.
I used the same stencils that Nat used, her own design. How great wouldn't that be - designing your own stencils?!
Over the stencil I misted with Liquitex Spray Paint in pink... that Nat uses a lot. They where great to work with, and are more permanent then other mists.
When that was dry, I took another one of her stencils and used modeling paste over that one.
I drew a curly pipe on a piece of watercolor paper, cut it out and then adheres it to the page. Happy pipe! :)
Look at all that lovely texture and layers with tissue paper, distress paints and spray paint. :)
