I’m having fun with my handmade art journal and this month’s Stencil Girl Club stencils, so wanted to share the process with you.
Started with painted greenish squares that had a stencil added. I was “cleaning” off the stencil, so I smooshed the paint around and included the edges. It has a clock face design on it. But I thought it was too bright, so I wanted to add some gesso to tone down but not loose the background, so I added stripes of masking and washi tape, then added the gesso.
The quote was written (twice) in white then went over it again with the black marker.
Then it was time to stencil! I used 2 shades of green, a teal and a grey and that helped to make the stencilling really subtle. I used Post-It notes to mask off areas and keep the stripes and quote stencilled.
The quote says “If you give up something good to search for something better, you may end up with something worse!”
Thanks for dropping by!
