Hello! Welcome to another art journal layout. New year, new book 🙂 I started a new Moleskine sketchbook. All I had in mind was this beautiful napkin to create a background.
If you want to watch the process of me creating the page, please find the video below. You will find supplies list at the description area in YouTube or at the bottom of this page:
I used a table napkin for the background, you will see the link down below. Ebay has fantastic stores that sell napkins very cheap. So, I would encourage you to check it out 😉 I gave color to it using Distress inks, mainly greens and a bit of Vintage photo. Then I placed my Dragonflies using a TCW stencil and black embossing paste.
I did some more stenciling around using one of the stencils I did myself. It has feathers on it. I cut stencils with my Silhouette digital cutter and have my own versions. If you want to see videos about this, there are many on YouTube.
I gave a bit of shimmer using Gilding wax by Creative Expressions in Bronze and green color. You will see that the border has a bit of shimmer as well as the dragonflies.
I again used a stars stencil from TCW to create some stars as the sentiment mentioned them.
At last, I gave some highlights with my white gel pen. I sticked some part of my sentiment and embossed some other parts. Embossing is done with Vanilla color not to disturb the harmony of colors with bright white.
