Winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 2nd.

Isn't that a freaking amazing prize!!!!!!

The DT was provided with some awesome StencilGirl stencils and here are the 3 that I chose:
the Marrakech stencil, the Journal texture #2 stencil and the Inky circles stencil.
(thank you StencilGirls!!):

Aren't they fabulous??? I knew right away that I wanted to use all 3 in an art journal page so I first started with painting one page
but then I got a vision in my head of how I wanted the page to be so I added paint to the other page as well to make a double spread
Next it was time to use the Marrakech stencil (this reminds me of the middle east or of some exotic locale!) and what I did was dab blue and burgandy paint onto the stencil with a foam brush
Once it dried I then "bumped" the stencil.  To do this you move the stencil slightly over until you see in this case some orange paint, and then I dabbed white paint over top with my foam brush.

What this does is gives you more depth, check it out!  Now it looks like there is shadowing, I love it!!

Here it is so far:
Now it was time for some stamps and washi tape.  I also used some sandpaper to distress the white paint so it looked more distressed.  I also used yellow paint with the Journal texture #2  stencil and lots of yummy inks from Imagine Crafts and the awesome "birds on a wire" stamp
and here is the finished journal page:
I had so much fun doing this!! Here are a few close ups (I am totally in love with the Delicata Golden Glitz ink from Tsukineko!!!!)
 more gold ink goodness
 and yet more gold ink goodness, can't get enough!!
Here are all of the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps! I used on this journal page:

chicken wire stamp
the spotty background stamp
the arrow stamp
birds on a wire large stamp
the You are here stamp
the large wasp stamp
the flock of geese stamp
the line of chevrons stamp
 and last but not least the you had the power stamp
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my journal page! Here is a list of everyone in the blog hop for today in order:

Sheri said...

Great page. love the colors.

Cecilia said...

kit cochran said...

Where to start! Well, I think those birds are talking about how beautiful they look perched upon such a glorious work of art. The depth is amazing. There is so much to look at and study. But I think what sets the whole piece in motion is the underlying orange and the stencil that you bumped because then all the layering took place. The really cool stamps added so much as they were stamped here and there over the stencil. Everything goes together so well, and take some on a life of it's own and tell someone us a story. It would look amazing framed. I just love it.

Shari Czerwinski said...

Wow! Just completely awesome!

Glenda Hoagland said...

Seriously amazing work here.

kit cochran said...

I can see my computer took on a life of it's own and decided to add words. I meant to say "Everything goes together so well, and takes on a life of it's own and tells us a story."
