Trying a new technique

Over at Club CK, there was a great tutorial by Kim Watson on using modeling paste and stencils on a scrapbook layout. I thought this would be a great approach for na art journal page to add some nice texture. I used a grunge diamond pattern stencil from Crafters Workshop, as well as a sort of bubbly stencil along with Liquitex modeling paste. To add color I used a mixture of alcohol inks, spray mist, and Pan Pastels. I’m a huge fan of anything by Napoleon Hill–I find his words so inspiring and thought provoking, so I used one of his quotes on the page. I hand lettered the entire thing–a lot of work, but I like how it came out.

  3. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come

    Exceptional work!
