Hi and welcome to my first crash the stash post! I’m super excited and honoured to be able to share what I’ve created with you all.
Since the whole part of “crash the stash” is about using supplies you haven’t used before I thought I would have a play with my Derwent Graphik Line paint pens.
To start off I collaged the whole page with tissue paper and deco paper then primed the page with some chalk primer to create a textured background. Then I did some stenciling with texture paste using a couple of Shawn’s stencils.
After drying the page thoroughly I added colour using the paint pens to the top of the page (the sky) then to the bottom of the page (the field). Once that was dry I used a paper towel to stencil white paint through Shawn’s poppy stencil, I used white to create a background for the detailing I was going to do.
I finished of the page by drawing in the details of the petals with the paint pens. Then adding highlights and details to the whole page with the uniball signo white gel pen.
I had loads of fun creating this art journal page and I love how it turned out.
I hope you enjoy the video and find inspiration from it. I can’t wait to share what I create with you all soon.
