I Just Love Stencils

I am just crazy about stencils lately. The pages below are in a journal I made by hand. The paper is extra heavy weight watercolor paper. I randomly painted it first with Tim Holtz and Adirondack Paint Dabbers. Then I took some Golden's Molding Paste and a stencil by Heidi Swapp and created the 3D circle design. After it dried I applied more paint lightly to the surface to color the dots. I dripped Liquitex acrylic inks from the top of the page to create the drips. On the third page panel I used a paint dabber on a stencil by Artist Cellar to create the flower look. The flap in the center of the page is a tag looped between two pages. The flowers are made from stenciled coffee filters which are then ripped and glued to silver foil to create a pattern. I punched out the graduated circles with hand punches from Marvy.

I then painted the stems with a Posca Paint pen and outlined them with a size 2 Sakura Pigma Graphic pen. Unfortunately I am left handed and I smeared some of the outline and lettering. The two butterfly cards (a previous project) are attached to the tag I looped through the pages. The final touches were some Tim Holtz tissue tape stained with Broken China Distress Stain and dabbed with Broken China Distress Paint.

What glorious and riotous pages - love those flowers and the tags as accents.
