Happy Friday crafty friends, I’m super excited to be sharing my first tutorial post with y’all for STAMPlorations!
I got a new mini journal binder, so I cut down some Mixed Media paper to 6.5x5 inches. Here’s my first page.
I started by applying blocks of color to my page using Dylusions paints with a blending tool.
Then using the Some Birds stencil, I applied red paint using only the small birds portion.
Then using the 2 bird masks from the Some Birds stencil set, I went around the masks with black gesso to get full coverage. I rinsed off the masks and then flipped them over and did the same technique. Isn’t that cool? I love how the birds now “POP” against the black.
I outlined the birds in black and then in white Pitt markers and then stamped the coordinating bird stamps from Trendy Birds 2 . I used archival black ink on the top right and white pigment ink on the bottom right bird. I then added some texture and color to the black with some chalk inks and birds from Trendy Birds 2 and Art Marks stamp set.
All that's left to do is hole punch and insert into my new binder. :o)
I have never done this technique before but love the vibrancy of the colors against the black, so think it’s something I would try again.
