Lot’s  of texture and sgraffito with Liquitex Heavy Body Paints accompanied with some stamping on this  spread. An easy and fast page but nonetheless a lot of fun.

Ornament Wallpaper – NEW STENCIL

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Stencils and Masks

OrnamentStencil

Here is the last one of my new five Stencils I released with StencilGirl Products. This 9x 12” Ornament Wallpaper Stencil -  was also inspired by my workshop travels to China and Malaysia in 2014 where I saw ornamental patterns in all kinds of shapes and forms in temples, wall decor and paintings.

For this art journal spread I used Liquitex Spray Paint over the Ornament Stencil, when I let it dry and used some Liquitx Acrylic Inks over the background. I love how it makes the colors pop.

Once that was dry I used again spray paint and this time only stenciled a band of a couple of the ornaments on each side of the art journal spread.
I will show a couple more projects using the new stencils- also how you can use them together for some new designs :)
Hope you like this one too.
Here is a list of supplies used:

Wishing you a wonderful and creative day!

Explore all kinds of different Liquitex Acrylic Media – from Dumbledore to Merlin, from Acrylic Paints to Acrylic Inks, from String Gel to Pouring Medium, from Modeling Paste to Stucco and other fun stuff. Learn their magic– and put an end to mystery on how to use these amazing helpers in your Mixed Media and/or Art Journaling projects. Learn not only how to use Acrylic Media and when to use them but also put your own spell into 3 abstract canvases during the class. You will for sure have as much fun waving your new magic acrylic wand in the future as Nathalie!
