The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 24

This is the final Stencilfied Journal post. My wonderful friend Tina Walker invited several people to join these prompts. The prompts were all music related and each week she posted a song. We drew inspiration from the lyrics, the video, the album cover or anything related to the song- the only restriction was to use StencilGirl Product Stencils. Here is my take on Prompt 24

This final prompt was a free song – your favorite song – tough one as I have a huge variety of songs I like and a bit of a grungy alternative rock taste- but one song I always loved and once in a while listen to is Love by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

I covered up the area for the journaling – and then layered my Santiago and Chicago stencils on top and sprayed and stamped.

I love how my Small Floral Tile rubber stamps fit nicely into the squares of the stencil.

The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 23

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 23

This week the song was Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf. This is definitely a classic, so I pulled some lyrics and then added my own thoughts :)

I used my Hamilton stencil for the background, with spray paint, then ink and paint on top.

I traced some fan shapes using my Fantastic Mixed Media Chip, and also stamped my Broadway Fan stamp from my FANtastic Large stamp set.

The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 22

This time the song was Lightening Crashes by Live – a grunge classic you could say. And although it is a bit of a bummer, I chose some lyrics and went for powerful colors and a vibrant spread.

I used my Lily Wallpaper stencil – one I designed years ago now but still love so much. I used spray paint, acrylic paint, and a fude pen. I paired it with the coordinating design – the Lily Fan stamp from my Fan-tastic Large stamp set. Mixing the same motifs together in different forms creates some nice unity.

It’s a pretty intense background (“like a rollin’ thunder”?) so I toned it down some with gesso.

And the lyrics found their spot in the center of it all ;)

The Stencilfied Journal – Prompt 21

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 21

This week’s prompt was Back in Black by AC/DC – a real rock n roll standard. I thought I would sketch a bit of a dangerous looking girl and use a fiery color palette.

I used my Hamburg stencil for the background with acrylic paint and spray paint.

I sketched the girl using Art Graf Kneaded Graphite – a water soluble putty-like stuff that you can draw with and then reactivate with water. It’s an interesting material to work with that I’m digging right now.

This week’s prompt was Godspeed(Sweet Dreams) by The Dixie Chicks. I haven’t heard this song before and it is definitely not my thing, but that didn’t stop me from creating :)

I tripled up on pattern in the background with my Santa Fe stencil and my Santa Fe and Mini Santa Fe foam stamps. Some areas with spray paint, and some areas with acrylic paint and sponge. I like the play between the different scales.

I collaged in and painted and sketched over a magazine image and pulled in some lyrics with a fude pen. Even though the song wasn’t my type, I really like what I made when I got to work. You never know what will spark your creativity when you begin.

This week’s prompt was Danny’s Song by Loggins and Messina which I had never heard before. It’s a pretty uplifting song about love so I was inspired to make a bright and happy page.

I used my Batik stencil with spray paint – one of my favorite stencils that is an “oldy but a goody.”

I wrote out some of the lyrics with a Fude pen and also added my Far Out and Mid Century Squared foam stamps with watercolor and spray paints.

This week’s prompt was The B-52’s Love Shack and I love it! Super fun and great video so I was inspired to really play up some bold patterns and colors with this one.

I used acrylic paint over spray paint with my Downtown stencil and my Toledo foam stamp. It’s an energetic song so an energetic background here.

My Oldtimer stencil was a must for the song, and then I repeated the Downtown pattern with my foam stamps. ” I got me a car, it seats about twenty, so come on and bring your jukebox money !”

This week’s prompt was Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp. I pulled some of the lyrics into my art journal and a photo I found at a flea market.

“And he said: Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone…” I don’t know about that – I’ll get back to you when I get that old! :) Here I used my Far Out foam stamp with some embossing powder and a wash of acrylic ink over top.

Here is my grumpy old man lol, my Chicago stencil with Distress Inks for the pattern, and my Fanfare stamps on the tape.

and my thoughts :)

This week’s prompt was I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For by U2. I’m a fan of U2 and this is one of my favorite songs by them so no problem finding inspiration here :)

I sketched a figure using a Fude pen and some caran d’ache museum aquarelle pencils – literally watercolors in pencil form and so fun and vibrant.

I used my Lily Wallpaper stencil with spray paint and then also added my FAN-tastic Large and FAN-tastic Small stamps in yellow ink.

I like the push and pull of the background through my coffee drinking gal. Imagine she’s deep in thought, wondering if she will find what she’s looking for :)
