Hello my lovely lovelies!! I am here again to show you the fun I have been having playing once again with the Blocks Series stencils.
I really do love this set, I think they are my new favorite!
I dont know what it is about this set but they make it so easy for me to keep white space in my journal spread.
I started out by prepping my page with Matte medium, I decided to coat it so that the spray inks wouldn't soak into the paper so much. I used the ink with a brush instead of the the sprayer to get a different look. I simply dipped my brush into the bottle and smooshed it through the stencil, when my brush started to dry out I dipped it in a bit of water to continue creating a gradual muting of the color through the stencils.
After looking at the pages I decided only to work on one side of the 2 pages and I was concentrating on keeping it simple. I used my Faber-Castell water soluble pencil to sketch out a simple face blurring the hardness of the line with a damp brush. When I wanted a bolder line I would wet the surface then use the pencil on the damp surface.
To add more depth to the face, I used white paint to add highlights to the cheekbones, nose, eyes and shoulder. The paint reactivates the spray ink so it takes a few layers if you want a pure white.
After much play I decided that she would be an angel and added wings, again using the pencil and white paint.
I think my self-challenge of trying to make simple uncluttered pages is progressing well. Someday with practice I will get it to a point that I feel I have the knack of it down to a skill!
Keep creating my lovelies!!!
Big hugs and mushies!
