Life is a game… {art journal spread by Terhi}


Hello all! It’s Terhi here today with another creation with the Hero Arts Night Flower Stencil. As I said here last time, this is my most favorite stencil ever and I can’t resist it – I’m always looking to find new projects and ways to use it. Talking about new projects, here is an art journal spread I made with the stencil. Title/journaling is from Avicii’s song (that’s another passion for me, I listen to music while creating something), that message might sound like a cliche but it’s kind of true, right?

IMG_1660I started to create this page by spreading gesso to a paper. Then some paper slices to add layers and interest. After all gesso and all the layers were completely dry, I made a mix of white gesso and pink spray mist, and I also added some tiny pearls to it. I have to admit, it wasn’t the easiest mix to add through a stencil but I made it and this is how it looks. Pretty cool!

IMG_1661After those big flowers were dry, I colored the whole page with spray mists: Hero Arts Passion Flowers Spray Mist, Hero Arts Pool Spray Mist and Hero Arts Green Hill Spray Mist.

IMG_1663Then I added alphas to their places and stamped some squares every here and there. I really enjoy to try new mediums, new colors and new textures – art journal pages are perfect to test things. You can never go wrong with art journals 🙂

Now, head on to A2Z Scrapbooking store and get yourself some mists and stencil to try my technique. Remember to use my code “TERHI15” to get 15% off your total orderof $25 or more.
