The inspiration by their designers is so varied and of such quality. I only started to participate fairly recently but am so enjoying the journey with them.
The topic for this month is "Stencil It".
I worked in my, now, very favourite repurposed girls annual. A charity shop find with the most wonderful quality pages which are really card.
I began by gessoing the page and gluing a few pieces of manuscript paper down. The stencil that I chose is one consisting of bubbles or circles.
I pressed Decoart Crackle paste through the stencil in 2 places and left to dry.
Next, I selected 2 Paperartsy fresco paints...Taupe and China Blue, and layered on some paint with my fingers. Before it was dry, I popped the stencil over the top and removed some of the paint with a baby wipe.
Then, once again with the same stencil, I dabble brown and blue archival ink over the page creating another layer.
My fourth use for the stencil was to draw through it onto some paper stash and cut out some assorted circles which I added. I added some White Fire treasure Gold to my circles to highlight the crackle.
Finally, I added a photo from Tim Holtz Photo Booth and chose a poem from another charity find about Love Without Hope.
I do hope that you like my creation and pop over to the Vintage Journey blog to enjoy lots of inspiration.
