Art Gone Wild! and Friends - Stencil + Stamp Love!

Hello and HAPPY Friday. It's been a crazy week here -- but I'm happy to say I have crossed some major things off of my to-do list -- including re-purposing an old buffet into a new studio work table -- working out every day AND finishing some art for a fund raiser next month. Phew, it feels good to be on top of the list looking down NOT under it and LOOKING up. 

I even managed to create some art using some of my new stamps and stencils -- which I am so over the moon -- in love with. 

Today I thought I would share a bright and happy page I created using the Clear Stencil Stamp Alphabet set and the Journal Flowers 9"x12" stencil. You can view the catalog by clicking on the image below!

 I started out by laying the stencil over a piece of Strathmore 140 lb. Mixed Media Paper and spraying it with black Liquetex spray paint. I think it was the low-odor version because it didn't smell at all and I didn't get an instant headache when I sprayed in the house!

When that was dry I used black Distress Paint to paint the two focal flowers completely black -- because I knew I wanted to stamp and write in white. I also used the stencil as a template to trace the other flowers using a pretty patterned paper and used Ultra Matte Medium (my newest crush) to collage them in place.

 When all that was dry I added lots of color with watercolor paints, distress paints and watercolor crayons.

 I also watered down the distress paint a little and splattered the black paint here and there.

When all that was dry I used white stamping ink to stamp the words using the Stencil Alphabet Clear Stamp Set and added some journaling with a white Gelli Pen. I also used a the white marker from Faber Castell to outline the flowers for a final touch.

I'm so happy with the way it turned out -- the color really makes me happy!

Thanks for stopping by -- have a GREAT weekend and I'll be back next week with some more things using my line of stamps and stencils with Art Gone Wild!
