Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello my lovelies! 

I am back in the fire that is Phoenix. It is sweltering here! High heat and high humidity. Not pleasant. I am missing Wisconsin so much, I am missing the inspiration that nature gives me on a daily basis! Here it is so icky I am always in a rush to get indoors. Blug.... OK. I'll stop whining.

While I was gone I missed my art supplies so much! I actually had dreams of my paints and stencils. Lol. So of course when I got back to AZ I started playing willy nilly with everything. Sadly I haven't finished anything. I do have pictures on a few items that I have been working on.

I pulled out my Dina Wakley paints, Dye-na-flow, Dylusions spray inks, stencils and some acrylic inks and sketched and just played! 

Greetings! Thanks for being here.

Sometimes you just want to have a little artsy paper book wherever you go. It’s great to have to jot down notes, ideas, and inspirations. This one I am about to show you would also be great for collecting collage and ephemera of the day (like fruit stickers, receipts, insides of bill envelopes, etc.)

Supplies To Gather:

Your favorite set of artistcellar 6x6 stencils

12 x 18 inch paper

Dylusions Spray Inks

 

Step 1:

Set out the four stencils on the 12 x 18 inch paper-three on the top and one on the bottom left.

Step 2:

Spray the stencils and the blank area of the paper with a few colors of Dylusions Spray Ink.

Step 3:

Remove the stencils and print the wet stencils on the “blank” area of the paper to add some texture.

Here’s a detail shot of how cool the layered spray inks look.

Step 4:

Fold the paper in half the long way (hot dog bun style).

Step 5:

Fold in the two ends to overlap in the middle, so you have a little book.

Step 6:

Play around with the book and check out how fun it is!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

Have an awesome and art-filled day!

Blessings,
