Here's some Friday, Art Journal inspiration to "kick off" your weekend. I used quite a few different stencils, since that is our Creative Challenge this month.
Hope you enjoy.
I created lots of layers using stencils, tissue, and stamps. I loved how it looked and really didn't want to do anything else to the pages. But I had to stick with my original plan. I drew three flowers with my black Montana paint marker and then divided the page in half. I blacked out the bottom half. Yikes. I was really nervous doing that. I then applied white paint to the top half using the same technique. I used a thinner layer of white paint than I did with the black paint. I just couldn't cover everything up. So I left some of the layers visible through the white paint.
I added some teal and white paint along the edge of the black paint. Sprayed it with some water and let it drip. I repeated the same process to the top with yellow paint and dripped in the opposite direction. To finish it, I added more pen work to the flowers with the pink, orange, and black Montana markers.
Here's a close up of all those stencils.
