It’s all about the doily…

Hi Everyone!  I have another art journal page to share with you that I worked on last week.  I have really been enjoying stenciling with modeling paste more.  I taught this technique years ago in an art journaling class, but sometimes you forget what is in your toolbox of tricks, as I like to call it.  I have often thought I should keep of a book of all the different techniques I have learned over the years, and open it to a random page when I am ready to work on a project and let the book be my guide as to what I do.  Someday…

I found a Prima Doily stencil in my stash that I wanted to make the focal point of my art journal page.  It looks so delicate and beautiful.  I love the texture of the modeling paste, and the depth the multiple ink sprays and acrylic paint add.  I used my foam stamps that I showed you guys how to make in a blog post last week (click here).  I found some discard bits of Magic Mesh (drywall mesh works just as well) and rub-ons being neglected in a drawer.  I think one of the reasons I love art journaling so much is I usually just use the scraps and leftover pieces from other projects to create a page. It is a great way to use up leftovers taking up space, which gives me an excuse to buy more things that I now have room for in my drawer :)

I think this page is so cheerful and bright.  I hope you enjoy!
