I like to draw, also!!

I have 60 + designs ready to be used for a stamp design, or for a stencil ...
As far as I am concerned they are too beautiful to just sit in a 'drawer'..

Please send me an e-mail for details if you're interested!

Happy to use photographs with stencils!

ANOTHER art journal page of 18 x 25 centimeters. 
I added some art journaling after taking these photographs of the page. 
I chose to use one of my many photographs to go with this beautiful stencil!

A step by step photo tutorial:

 Adhere some strips of tissue wrap to the page. 
Paint it with some watered down gesso. 
Leave to dry very properly, before advancing to the next step! 

 Sponge with green distress ink over the stencil, and heat emboss with clear embossing. 
Sprinkle some red brusho powder onto the page, and mist with water. 
LOVE the magic!

Leave to dry.  


 Sponge 3 different flowers from the same stencil, at the back of a separate piece of cardstock..
and fussy cut it... an easy way to create your own embellishments!
Cover the front side of the flowers with a thick layer of gesso, 
and dry with a heat gun, for the gesso to create bubbles. 
That adds some texture to the flowers. 

Assemble it all to your page.  

I chose to keep the amount of  embellishments to a minimum, to have the beautiful background to jump. 

Here you can see the bubbles in the gesso. 
Love that tiny bit of texture. 

I only realize now that I haven't used any stamps on this page, LOL.
