Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Artistcellar Star Coral and Stampotique Stamp Journal Page

Hello Artists-

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:

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.

Once dry trim to 6.5"x6.5".

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.

Be Well-
