Stencil Sunday~STAMPlorations Inspiration~"Art Journal" Canvas


Welcome to Stencil Sunday! This is my inspiration project for the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Team.

Every Sunday you can find some awesome inspirational projects to kick-start your week! Visit by clicking HERE.

There is also a fabulous Mixed Media Challenge, you can link up HERE. Still lots of time to play, you can enter until July 31 :)

I made a small canvas 5 inches by 7 inches. As I played I felt it was going more the direction of a journal page and I had lots of fun and just went along with it :)

The background started with the Bubbles ARTplorations stencil, I love circles and this is one of my go-to items! I used some DecoArt modelling paste for depth. I added some circles drywall tape and DecoArt Crackle Paste in random spots.

Once dry, it was paint play with DecoArt Misters, Fluid Acrylics and Americana Multi-Surface Satin. I love the multi- surface, it is wonderful!

For the stamping I used STAMPlorations Vignette Trendy Feathers and Artsy Borders

I stamped, heat embossed with Ranger Extra Fine Black, then fussy cut the feathers, which are perfect ATC size :)  The border stamping I did directly onto the canvas across all the texture bumps and valleys. I stamped the borders with Ranger Distress Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Black powder.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Hope you have time to play and hop over to STAMPlorations!

Have a great day!
