Woot Woot! These NEW Halftone Dots Series stencils are soooooo great!
This is Briana from OrangeSpiralArts.com. I am currently teaching a class called, “What Is Art Journaling?” through my local Adult Community Education program. Last week we were talking about using stencils in the art journal, and guess what? I brought the NEW Halftone Dots Series stencils along to let my students be the first to try them! The Halftone Dots Series stencils are now student tested and approved by beginning adult art journalers! Yay!
Going along with the art journal theme, I created a silly page spread to share with you today.
I have a question for ya’ll. Are there any pickle lovers reading this? What’s your favorite kind? Do you like sour dill? Kosher half-sour? Sweet pickles? Or maybe hot pickles are your preference?
No matter what kind of pickles you prefer, you just might want to save the label from the next empty pickle jar at your house. (Soak the glass jar in hot soapy water to help release the label’s glue.) You, too, can make some “pickle pages” in your beloved art journal with a few easy steps and art supplies!
First you’ll want to gather the following supplies:
Since I have already been kind of “chatty”, I am going to post the stepped out photos below.
Step 1: Spray Ink over Halftone Dots Series stencils
Step 2: Scrape acrylic paint over part of your spray inked and stenciled pages.
Step 3: Use Matte Medium to glue down your pickle label.
Step 4: Use a Giant Bamboo Brush Pen and Dye-na-flow to do some journaling about pickles.
I wrote, “I like pickles, yes, I do. I like pickles, how about you? Do you like ‘em sweet, or somewhere in between? I prefer them sour, but that’s just me!”
Step 5: Do some hand lettering about pickles with a Sharpie.
Step 6: Use yellow Dye-na-flow to fill in around some of the main shapes. Use a Uni Posca Paint Marker to color in and around some of your lettering.
I hope you enjoyed this “pickle pages” art journaling tutorial! Be sure to leave a comment below for your chance to WIN a set of Halftone Dots Series stencils! Writing your favorite kind of pickle with your comment is extra credit!
Have an amazing day!
