Hello Mixed Media Makers! This week, I was inspired by the new Field Notes Stencils, and wanted to feature the heart stencil from this new line on my pages in the Junque Journal. You can use the prompts that Vicki has placed in her online community to kickstart your pages, and I used the rainbow-straw prompt from August.
I used the heart stencil on both pages, with the Color Wheel Pigment Inks and the Stencil Brushes. I always tape all sides down with masking tape before starting to create a clean image. The pigment inks blend really well, so I was able to create an ombre effect on some of the hearts by blending two different colors. After the pigment ink dried, I added watercolor splatters with the Watercolor Brushes and Art Crayons.
I used the add-on Mixed Media Refill Sheets for this page on the left, and just added my inks over the preprinted left side edge of the page. I love that the refill sheets come with different preprinted elements, because it makes for a super quick layout. I plan on using each of the new stencils in this section of the Junque Journal, to see how each of them will function.
The right side was created with the same technique. I used the pigment inks first, then the splatters were added with the Watercolor Brush. I love that you can create any custom color you desire with the Art Crayons. Punch hearts from the Field Notes Patterned Double-sided Card Stock. I stitched on the hearts before adhering them to the page.
Here are the stencils from the Field Notes line, in pack one. You get three stencils in each pack, and these are such versatile and usable designs! Like a visit to Paris, circles are always a good idea!
Here are both pages in the Junque Journal, and you can see how easy it is to create layouts using the prompts from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Community. Have you tried the new stencils, and other art mediums with them? I would love to see your creations!
Thank you for visiting today, Leigh.
