We Belong Together Art Journaling

We Belong Together Art Journaling!
Art Journaling and stenciling belong together just like peanut butter and jelly!
Hard to stop creating with once you begin!

Begin by preparing your Arteza pages with Gel Medium and a bit of ripped up paper pieces that has been placed randomly on your pages using Gel Medium. 

Add a bit of color using water along with 3 in 1 pencils. 
Allow colors to dry after each application so they don't become muddy looking. 

Lay Cosmopolitan Floral Stencil on prepared pages. 
Apply different colors of distress inks over each layer to achieve depth of color.

Lay the lattice part of the Watercolour Flowers and Lattice Stencil to top of prepared pages. 
Apply crackle paste to top. 
Allow to dry completely. 

Apply black 3 in 1 Woody Pencils smears lightly along edges of paper and flowers. 
Rub in with fingertip. 
Hint: If to dark lighten with a light touch of water. 
Add rub-ons randomly on pages. 

Do a bit of line work with black pen. 
Add small white and black dots with paint using toothpick. 

Spatter with black and white paint. Dry

Add sentiments and butterflies to pages. 
Always remember that art journaling is a process and so much fun to experiment and create with. 
Enjoy Pam

Hello Card and Gift Box with Eileen Hull Inspiration Team

Happy June!!!!
It's Eileen Release Party!!!
How Fun!!!!

Hop Along with the Inspiration Team for so much inspiration!!!

The collection combines three classic Eileen Hull Sizzix Scoreboards dies and two new designs- a four-layer stencil and coordinating Thinlits that cuts a portion of the stencil! 
The three Scoreboards dies are the Treasure Box, Stacking Drawer and Notebook. The fun thing about this set is that they work together but also stand alone. 

The Treasure Box measures 3 1/4” x 5 1/4” x 4” and holds index cards, two stacks of ATC’s, a whole row of journaling cards and anything else you care to add. 

The Stacking Drawer fits a set of three drawers perfectly inside the Treasure Box to create a great storage solution for desk supplies, hair accessories, small collections, jewelry and much more. It also makes a great little gift box for something special! 

The Notebook Die is a favorite because of how quick and easy it is to create. One pass through the Big Shot and you have a book cover! It measures 5” x 3 1/2” x 3/4”. Cover with paper, fabric, metal or cut from leather. So many ways to use this

The Watercolour Florals & Lattice Stencil is based on a watercolor that Eileen has done. There are three stencil layers to give dimension and then a fourth layer versatile lattice design that can also be used to create a plaid pattern! 

Painterly Blooms & Background is a die that perfectly die cuts the flowers you have just stenciled so no fussy cutting needed plus there are extra flower shapes so you can layer them for dimensional florals
