These stencils reflect on personal struggles of the past year and will add powerful imagery to your art journaling and other mixed media work.
Here is a stepped out look at creating a journal spread with one of my new stencils
This page started off on a partially stenciled background using my Acrylic Inks and a copy of a sketch adhered with Mixed Media Adhesive, to give a nice matte finish to the page. Then I traced the stencil design with a Pitt Artist Pen. Using a small sponge dauber I applied Liquid Frisket through the stencil. Let it dry. The Liquid Frisket will mask off the stencil design to preserve the colors underneath.
I adhered more imagery using Mixed Media Adhesive and chose my color palette for the page. I’m using my Fluid Matt Sheer Acrylics in the following analogous color palette, Turquoise, Rain, Olive, Celedon and using a complementary color to Turquoise, Mustard Seed.
Because I’ve masked off the stencil design I can freely paint over the top of it with layers of color.
Using a Liquid Frisket removal tool, I can easily pull off the masking to reveal the page underneath.
I love how it went slightly outside the lines of the stencil design. This gives more interest to the page.
