Here are my friends joining me:

Stephanie Schütze who joined me last week already and did some amazing cards and a layout- I love her style!

Birgit Koopsen a close friend of mine, not only do I love teaching together with her…she is also super duper colorful in her work!

Marjie Kemper, I met Marjie in NYC a while back when I was teaching workshops- and she is doing amazing things on her blog – check her out!

Samie Harding  – is a huge art journaler who also does a lot of fun videos on her art journaling.

 

I designed the Circuit Stencil because I do love technical signs in my work -I love when something is whimsy and then you can put some straight technical background to it. I also wanted to have a stencil which you can use as a background stencil but also to frame your work.

Check out some samples here:

Here is what I created for today:

It is a very simple yet colorful sparkling art journaling page :) I used Wendy Vecchi’s Golden Embossing Paste over the Stencil- simply scrape it over with an old credit card or hotel key card.

I let it dry and then used three different colors of Dylusion Sprays over it.

At some areas I dabbed the color off while still wet – so it got sparkly gold again, at some areas I just let the color sit and dry on top of the circuit pattern.

Next I used a water mister and laid out the Circuit Stencil over areas that weren’t covered yet with the pattern, spritzed over the stencil and used a rag to rub through the stencil. As the Dylusions get reactivated by water, you take off some of the colors and get a little Circuit Ghost Effect :)

Voila- a nice background that you can add photos, journaling, stamping etc. I simply used a little quote I liked, by Pablo Picasso – I love filling my art journal with quotes.

    “processing” the possibilities of those circuits! if used as layers will the route be “circuitous”?! my muse is feeling a kinship to overlapping neural circuits!!
