Hello! Welcome to another art journal post and video. In my mind everything started with this stencil of Tim Holtz. I saw it and said, I can make some rose clusters and color them with a soft pink, so it has a vintage look 🙂 So I did! If you want to watch the video to see how I created it instead of reading this, please see below. You will find list of supplies at the end of the page or at the description area on my channel:
So, having this idea of creating roses and coloring them in light pink, I wanted to create a dark background so that they stand out. I chose to use all my pigment powders to find the right color. I started with Infusions, added a bit of 13 Arts, but I wasn’t getting the dark color I want. By the way, in this one I applied my powders with gel medium to have more control and also wanted the texture that comes from brush strokes. At the end, I went for my Brusho Dark Brown. When I applied it on top of the other two colors, it created an amazing layered look, which I LOVE 🙂 I love playing with paint because you’re always surprised with what you get in the end.
I also did a bit of stamping with Penny Black script stamp and black Archival ink. Then it was time for the roses. While I was showing the stencil to the camera, I realised the roses were actually scribbles 🙂 Well, it was the name of the stencil. Well, for me it was roses and that’s how I used it. I mixed some modeling paste with Victorian Velvet Distress paint. Then I applied it all around my page. After it dried, I applied some gilding wax over them to give some shading, and color variety. I used a magenta and a bit of gold.
I punched some circles from a pattern paper and sticked them on the page for some dimension and added interest. I printed a part of the sentiment and used stickers to highlight other words. And the sentiment goes very well with the concept 🙂
Lastly, I did some splashes with the Victorian Velvet paint to bring the page together.
