Here is an overview of Prompts 5, 6 & 7:
August 5 – Fusion
It is such an easy way to combine or fuse stencils.
Later I used the mask of the elephant, which is also included in this stencils to trace the elephant and also to stencil with my Lily Wallpaper Stencil for the background.
August 6 – Print!
Using stencils with a printing plate like the Gelli Plate is super fun. One technique I do enjoy a lot is using different plates and inkpads with stencils and then print into my art journal.
For this spread I used a small round gel plate and first added some ink onto the plate. I used a hybrid inkpad by Moonlight Duo which doesn’t dry too fast, it also creates some nice gradients in color due to its dual pads. I applied my Star Struck Stencil, and printed off to another piece of paper (you can make cards or use those prints as collage paper). Then I lifted the stencil and turned the plate around to print on top of my journal page.
I did this in different colors and then masked off those areas in my art journal – repeating the same process with a bigger gel plate and my Beacon Stencil.
Here is the finished page:
August 7 – Quilt
Now I cannot sew very well …might have to do with my dislike of rulers and measurements ;) But inspired by the different colors and patterns quilts are often made of, I use this process quite often in my art journals.
I paint the background in different color swatches…
This way I make sure the repetition of color ties the design together. A fun and easy way to create the foundation for an art journal spread.
Here are some of the supplies I used in these prompts:
Here are the daily prompts. I hope you play along with us on on my insta feed!
