Beautiful Dreams Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone! I am back again today on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with this art journal page I recently created.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

For my background I randomly added Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers in Time Travel Teal, Polka Purple and Autumn Maple Crimson. Then sprayed with water and put aside to dry.

Using a make up sponge, I applied TCW9002 Black Gesso over the top of TCW775 Scalloped Mandala 6×6 stencil.

I liked the pattern the make up sponge made so I continued the dabbing all over the page.

I thought my page needed something else to break up the black so I used TCW261 Art Is 6×6 stencil and TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I used another make up sponge to dab through the stencil. Because I had already used the Scallop Mandala stencil, I laid it on top of the script stencil so I knew where not to apply the gold paint.

Next I painted the chipboard feathers and chains with TCW9002 Black Gesso. Because chipboard is quite thick, I split the chipboard in half first.

Now to add colour to the feathers and chains. I started off by added art alchemy waxes and then added some TCW9036 Champagne Gold Modeling Paste by using my finger in a dabbing motion.

Next I added some Fluro Pink acrylic paint and finished them off with TCW9001 White Gesso.

For the chains I also used art alchemy waxes in White Gold and Rich Copper but it needed to be a little lighter so I added Brushed Iron as the end. I used a liquid glue to adhere the chains and feathers.

To finish off the page, I added a quote from Tim Holtz quotes sticker book and inked around the edges using Salty Ocean Distress Oxides. Then used some Uni Posca pens to draw around the edges of the page.

Here is a close up of the finished page

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial

Mixed Media Pencil Case

Hey Everyone!! Today I’m sharing with you a canvas pencil case I decided needed a little makeover. I’m sure you all have something in your craftroom that is a little on the boring side whether it is plain or the colour is bland. Well why not give it a makeover using some pretty amazing TCW stencils?

Well with that said, let me show you my process in giving my pencil case a new life!!!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start off I applied a coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso….why you ask? I found that if the material wasn’t sealed then the paint will be absorbed and your colour will be quite bland. You don’t need a lot, just enough to cover the whole area and then use a heat gun to dry it.

Once it was dry, I then applied my background colour. I used Dylusions Paints Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime, White Linen, Vibrant Turquoise and Funky Fuchsia. I started off applying the paint with a dry paint brush but then decided to use my fingers (I find this gives me more control over the paint). I just layered the paint until I was happy with finish effect. And I dried in between colours.

Now for the stenciling – I used 3 of the 6×6 stencils along with TCW’s Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and a make up sponge. So I started with TCW754s – Distressed Details with TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice.

The next stencil I used is TCW739s – Trendy Images along with a mixture of TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9022 Grape Jelly.

The last stencil I used is TCW 751s – Kitchen Tiles and I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9023 Blue Jellybean to create a light blue colour.

To finish off the pencil case I used my Uni Posca Paint pens in Black, White, Light Blue, Pink and Yellow to highlight some of the stencils and then applied a light coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso to seal it all.

I started my background by tearing a page from a dictionary and adhering it using TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium. Once I gave it a quick dry with my heat gun, I then started applying my acrylic paint. I used my fingers to apply the paint as I love the effect you get and I love getting my hands messy lol. So I started from light to dark – Fluro Yellow, Fluro Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Pink and last of all Fluro Purple.

Next I used TCW737s Love Sonnet stencil and not using the whole stencil, I applied TCW9023 Blue Jellybean Heavy Body Acrylic paint using a make up blending sponge.

Once that was dry, I then applied TCW9022 Grape Jelly acrylic paint through the circles of TCW754 Distressed Details. Using the same stencil, I then used the mesh pattern and TCW9016 Spun Sugar acrylic paint on both pages. On the left page I did however flip the stencil over and sponged the reverse side with paint.

I added a scribble circle stamp and cross stamp from VivaLasVegaStamps Plate 1495 and used Versafine Black Onyx and added some doodling around the stamped images using paint pens.

Next using TCW9015 Black Licorice acrylic paint and TCW527 Word Association, I sponged the word “LOVE” and also the stars on the bottom left hand page and top right hand page. Then to finish it off I put the stencil back over the stars and used a yellow paint pen to trace around the stars and I also used a pink paint pen to highlight “LOVE”.
