Sorry Not Sorry or … In my Art Journal Today


“I’m sorry for the things, I said when it was winter”

I am just preparing myself for the winter ….I am a grumpy winter person – LOL .

For this art journal spread I used my brand new Buenos Aires 9×12 Stencil.


I really love this stencil – I mean …I love them all but this one is probably one of my super faves. For the spread I had scraped off left over red and yellow paint to the background during a workshop and it really wasn’t looking too great. I added some stamping with black ink and while that was looking interesting it still wasn’t really inspiring me to do something. But when I saw my new stencil I know it would look great.


I used some blue acrylic paint spray (you can of course also use acrylic paint) and sprayed over the stencil I love how the red and yellow as well as the intricate stamping is peeking through.


Finished off with an overpainted magazine image and a grumpy quote and there you go …winter can come ;)

Here is a list of the supplies I used- some of those links are affiliate links:

    Hi Nat!

    Great page! My favorite season is FALL, especially in New England. The colors are amazing, the crisp air, cozy sweaters, outdoor walks.

    Thanks again for the fabulous class at The Queen’s Ink.
