This piece came together quickly and I used just a few items!
Enjoy the video!
Liquitex Gel Medium, Liquitex Gesso, Tim Holtz flourish stencil, Americana craft paints, scrapbook and book pages. Liquitex burnt umber. Charcoal pencil, Catalyst tool, Letter stamps and archival ink pad. Krylon fixatif
I used gel medium instead of my usual fluid matte medium. Gel medium is thicker and it doesn’t allow the papers to wrinkle as much as fluid medium but it still does the job. I like using gesso because it gives great texture. That is what I used with the stencil and it gave it just enough texture to see. I also have enjoyed using the catalyst tool. You can use a credit card, but the catalyst tool has a nice curve to it that really helps in getting some great lines and texture.
Don’t forget to spray all of your pieces with a sealer and/or fixatif.

My loves…. so many of you are in the middle of a challenge…. Some of you will face a challenge in the coming year. I want to hug you… then hug you some more and tell you your gonna make it. Although not fun… we need these times of struggle and uncertainty to grow and stretch our strength muscles. I get it… it sucks sometimes…..! and yet what we gain from the hard stuff is priceless. So much wisdom comes if we allow the struggle to enrich us and not make us bitter. Stop asking why, and just be in it. Be mad, be sick and tire, be sad…. rest and then, Start asking how can I learn from this, what is the message in this challenge. There is always, always a lesson in each day and even more in the struggle. Gather strength from rest and from those who are trustworthy around you. We are better and stronger together.
