The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 10

My wonderful friend Tina Walker is at it again – she invited several people to join her Stencilfied Prompts. The prompts are music related and each week she is posting a song. You can be inspired by the lyrics, the video, the album cover or anything related and the only restriction is that you have to use StencilGirl Product Stencils. Here is my take on Prompt 10:

This week’s prompt is Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” . Loved playing with my Kassel Stencil since I felt that would fit the best with the lyric part I picked.

For the first pink layer I used acrylic paint over the stencil and then for the second layer I used spray paint.

For the figure I used oil pastels – still love playing with them, it is so satisfying to play with this creamy intense colorful medium :)

Here are some of the supplies I used

This week’s prompt was Hotel California by The Eagles. I had fun playing with my Manhattan Stencil on a small gelli plate – using the plate to stamp into the art journal.

I sketched the figure over the background and then painted him partly in with Inktense Blocks- I love how the stenciled areas areas creating a pattern and texture for the clothes.

This week’s prompt was Beautiful – Christina Aguilera . The lyrics are awesome- as to the music…well by now you might have guessed I am a total grunge-rock-alternative kinda girl. LOL …but hey …I am in here ;)

I used my Broadway Stencil with some ink pens – I was in our new house waiting for a contractor and this was what I stuffed in my bag and thought “make the most of this, a journal, a 4×4 stencil and three pens” and there you go:

I actually plan on doing this more often – just pack a really limited amount of stuff and see what happens. It was really fun to do – easy but occupying and as you can tell since it was finished – the contractor was late.  All in all better than a coloring book ;)

Here are the supplies I used for this one:

This week’s prompt was Counting Blue Cars – Dishwalla

A song I never heard before but I found the lyrics interesting yet again. I was in a very bold color mood and used my Exchange Place Stencil on the left with Acrylic paint and the Flower Maze Stencil on the right page with acrylic spray paint.

A little sketch and very limited painting on top – I actually like this- I want to explore this a bit more.

Here are the stencils I used:

This week’s prompt was Alanis Morissette – Thank You. That one was tough – neither do I like the song- LOL- nor did the lyrics really do it for me- but I found a small part of the lyrics and I pulled them out :)

I used my Santa Fe Stencil on top of a really messed up background. I sprayed in white over the Stencil and I love how it made the otherwise already dull looking colors pop again.

I love how crisp the spray painted stencils sets off the textured grungy background.

You can be inspired by the lyrics, the video, the album cover or anything related and the only restriction is that you have to use StencilGirl Product Stencils. Here is my take on Prompt 5:

This week’s prompt was Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.

I added a bit to the lyrics ;) You know Led Kalbach – yeah stupid joke LOL

For this art journal spread I spray painted in grey over my Toledo Stencil and then layered the Beacon Stencil on top and sprayed with pink and beige as well as purple over it.

I love how the layered stencils come together. I tried it first with a lighter color as the background and then the dark color on top  but I realized that it was too hard for the eye to read the background pattern that way. Always fun to play around with stencils and see how far and different you can push them :)

Wish you a Rock ‘N Roll day !!!

The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 4

You can be inspired by the lyrics, the video, the album cover or anything related and the only restriction is that you have to use StencilGirl Product Stencils. Here is my take on Prompt 4:

This week’s prompt was She Used to be Mine – Sara Bareilles – another song I am not really familiar with …I do have a very grungy, alternative music style- but it was fun to listen to the music and use part of them.

For this Spread I started by using my Mesa Verde Stencil on top of a partly painted background and spreading a thin layer of Heavy Gesso over the stencil. Using a palate knife makes sure you can apply the gesso pretty evenly.

After the gesso dried I layered my Granada Stencil on top and used spray paint to create a second layer – i love how the two stencils work together. I used the Millie Stamp from the Actually I Can Stamp Set on a piece of tissue paper and then added it to the background with Fluid Medium. This way I could make sure to still see the background shining through but was also able to add the stamping regardless of the texture.

Added the journaling and there it is. Here are some of the supplies I used:

The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 3

You can be inspired by the lyrics, the video, the album cover or anything related and the only restriction is that you have to use StencilGirl Product Stencils. Here is my take on Prompt 3:

This week’s prompt is “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls”   and I love the part of the lyrics which says ” I want you to know who I am”

I used my Downtown Stencil and sprayed with a nice teal color over it. Something about this stencil always screams teal and gold to me and so I also added some gold Gesso here and there and then used Neopastels to paint the face on top.

I love that the gold gesso actually resisted the pastels a bit  I assume because of the texture and that is peaks out here and there in the face -nice happy accident :)

Here are some of the supplies I used besides some acrylic paint:

This week’s prompt was Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody – such a great song! So many great memories – how about you, do you have special memories when you hear the song?

I decided to choose a Freddie Mercury quote and create an image of him on stage – he definitely wasn’t boring that is for sure :)

I used my Hamilton Stencil on the right with some acrylic paint and then added also added to some areas parts of my Van Vorst Stencil.

I painted Freddie with my new Liquitex Gouache colors which.

Here are some of the supplies I used besides regular acrylic paint:

    One of my favorite songs ever!
    Reminds me of singing in the car with friends when I was a teenager and then again when my son was younger and he and his friends sang it with me. This song will live on forever since it’s just that good.
