Wellbeing Art Journal Page

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Hello Stampers, it is Godelieve Tijskens here today, sharing an art journal page and card using the new Wellbeing Medium Stencil.

My first project is a spread in my Dina Wakley Media Journal. Words on this stencil made me think of the quiet walks with our son, enjoying the countryside, trees, wildflowers and birds. These walks are relaxing, and give energy at the same time.  

The page at the left side was colored with Dylusions paints Rose Quartz and Peony Blush.  I love using ink blending tools to apply the paint.  On the fabric page at the right I sponged 3 ovals through a stencil using the same colours. After the paint had dried I sponged parts of the Wellbeing stencil with the darker colour Pomegranate Seed. The dots were done with the new Large Stencil.

On the large cream tag I stamped a gum tree and 2 birds using Thistle Archival Ink. I added rays of sunshine using the small Sunshine stencil with Thistle Blendable Make Art Dye Ink. I chose 2 words from the Wellbeing stencil to sponge on the small cream tag with Archival Ink.

The pink tags were painted with Dylusions paint.  On the small one I stamped a wildflower and words from the Nature Walk set.
A stamp from the Wilderness Vol 2 set was stamped on the large pink tag, using Archival ink Thistle.  To add the word ‘quiet’ below the image I masked the surrounding words on the stencil with sticky notes and sponged with Blendable Dye ink Thistle. I inked all edges of the tags, added twine and glued them in place using bookbinding glue.

Supplies I used:
Darkroom Door Medium Stencil: Wellbeing
Darkroom Door Large Stencil: Dots
Darkroom Door Small Stencils: Oval Set, Sunshine
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Gum Trees, Love Birds, Wilderness Vol 2, Nature Walk 
Dina Wakley Media Journal
Dylusions Paints: Rose Quartz, Peony Blush, Pomegranate Seed
Blendable Dye Ink: Thistle
Archival Inkpad: Thistle

On this card I used the Wellbeing Stencil over a gel print I made earlier. I sponged with Archival Inks Orange Blossom and Watering Can.

With the stencil still in place I outlined the letters with a fine pencil, to make them stand out against the busy background.

A butterfly from the Wings set was stamped twice onto vellum with Versamark ink, heat embossed and cut out. I machine stitched the butterflies in place using zig zag stitches and glued the piece onto a kraft card.

Supplies I used:
Darkroom Door Medium Stencil: Wellbeing
Darkroom Door Stamp Set: Wings
Ranger Archival Inkpads: Orange Blossom, Watering Can
Mini Ink Blending Tool
Versamark Inkpad

I enjoyed making these projects and hope they inspired you.
