Happy Hump day. Sarinda here with your midweek muse with a journal technique using the Star Coral Stencil from Artistcellar.
Here is what you will need:
- Star Coral Stencil
- Paper White 12"x12"
- Black card stock 7"x7"
- Paper trimmer
- Golden Acrylic Paints
- Sponge Brayer
- Pitt Pens
- Ranger Crackle
- Brown Distress Stain
- Stampotique.com Stamps "To Be A Star..." Sentiment and "Smushallaum" Mermaid
- Memento Black Ink Pad
- Heat Tool
- Copic Markers
Step 1: Apply the acrylic paint to the 12"x12" white paper with the sponge brayer. You will only used a 6.5"x6.5". I use the larger paper so that I can use the best part of the sheet. Let Dry. Clean off brayer as soon as you are done with the application of paint. Otherwise it dry into the sponge and will be a one time use.
This is what my sheet looked like after painting.
Step 2: Place Artistcellar Star Coral stencil onto the portion of the painted paper that you would like to use. Apply light grey and cream acrylic paint with the the sponge brayer. Let dry. Make sure that you rinse off the stencil and brayer.
Step 3: Place the stencil over the painting just a bit off then outline with the Pitt "S" pen.
Step 4: Add the Ranger Crackle Accents to the center of the light circles. Let dry over night. This crackle does better to dry by air than with a heat tool.
Step 5: Apply the Distress Stain on top of the dried crackle. Let the stain saturate and go into the cracks once you are happy with the color then remove the excess with a paper towel.
Step 6: Stamp Stampotique "Smushallaum" Mermaid and Sentiment stamps onto the white card stock with Memento Black ink. Use heat tool to dry. Color with Copic Markers then fussy cut out. Cut out the sentiment in a rectangle.
Step 7: Cut out black card stock to fit both the art and the sentiment. Glue both Mermaid and sentiment to the top.
Congratulations on your journal page.
