Winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 2nd.


Today I started with a page in my art Journal that i had added a magazine page to previously. I gave the page a light white wash, then after it dried I outlined the details on the girl. I also painted the background around the girl Turquoise and added a touch of red to her lips. 


Next I started with my 1st stencil "Twist Lattice" and added some fun geometric shapes with red paint. I also added some skull washi tape with a wash of red paint to pull it in as well. (let paint dry completely before moving on)


From there I added the film strip washi tape and the tiny camera washi tape 
(I have been doing some photo shots lately so it is relevant to me) 

Next I used the "Inside Out stencil" for the word Secret, Inside, and for the edging details on the pages. I stamped around the page as well as writing a few words in. This is a perfect base page for me now so that I can fill with journaling and write when the mood strikes :-D
 I do love having pages pre-arted up!!
