Today I am showing you 3 of my latest stencil designs! First up is the Dots stencil! You get 4 stencils of different sizes of circles! These stencils are cut with my Brother Scan n Cut from Stencil Film. You can reuse them many times will all types of mediums! Now, this stencil ended up being very time consuming to cut, so I actually only have 4 stencils left and once they are gone I won’t be producing any more of them.
Next are some of my favourite stencils – the Script Journal Word Stencils and Masks! On the top page I used the script word stencil, then on the card above I used the mask. You get 5 words: create, dream, believe, love and art – in both the stencil and the mask. I had wrote all of these words. I tried to pick words you can use over again on your pages.
My 3rd stencil set is the Script Sentiment Stencils and Masks. There are 5 words in 2 sizes, plus you get both the stencils and the masks. The words are hello, thanks, celebrate, happy and birthday.
Today I am showing you the Marion Smith Designs Color Lab Paint Kit. In this kit you get 8 colours of pigment powders, 3 spray bottles, a little scoop and a ‘recipe’ book to mix up a variety of colours. I decided to make some watercolour paints with the pigments. I followed the recipes and came up with the colours shown above. I mixed the pigments on Palette paper, but I suggest using little containers with lids. Once the paint dries it can be re-activated with water.
I then tested each of the colours in my art journal as I made them. The colours were very rich!
Afterwards, I went over the pages and added a bunch of Zentangling. I think it really brought the pages to life. On the page above I used white paint around the butterfly just to highlight it a bit more.
I used Zen Doodle by Tonia Jenny for my Zentangle Inspiration. You can buy Zen Doodle on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca.
There is so much you can do with the Color Lab Paint Kit! You can make your own Spray Mists with the bottles included with the kits. There are 1000s of unique colours that can be mixed together. You can use it to colour all mediums including Multi-Medium, Gesso, Paints and Texture Pastes!
On the next episode I am featuring some of my new stencils!
