Hi it’s my turn to choose the Speed Craft Challenge theme this time, i have chosen STENCILS but with this being the busiest time of the year the DT decided to change it to ANYTHING GOES with the option of stencilling.
Really hope you can find the time to join in, if not now then in the new year when our next challenge goes live on 8th January 2015. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Here is my latest Documented Life Journal page. For week 51 we were asked to add arrows to our page.
My stash for this Challenge compromises of:
Background made at AFTH last week using Amsterdam Paints
Rebekah Meier mini rosetta stencil
Tim Holtz damask stencil
Bespoke stencil from Glitzcraft
Arrow stamp from Jillibean Soup
Mandala stamp freebie
She script stamp by Christy Tomlinson
Watering Can Archival ink
Iced Spruce DI
Peacock Feathers DI
Derwent Line Painters
Head stamp by Dyan Reaveley
Sentiments by Dyan Reaveley
Cornflower Chalk Paint Silkies
DecoArt Mister Orange
Started my stopwatch and speeded ahead, used the orange mister through the damask stencil.
Added a layer of Portfolio Pastels then used the bespoke stencil to remove the colour to reveal the background. Heat setting is important here.
Added a layer of the mandala stamp using Peacock Feathers DI.
Added the script stamp by Christy Tomlinson over the top using Watering Can Archival ink.
Placed the mini rosetta stencil over the top and added the cornflower chalk paint with a sponge, wanted a light layer which blended into the background.
I dried each layer before adding another by the way!
Cut out the sentiments and placed onto the page, inked up the arrow with black Archival and stamped between where i was going to add the wording.
Managed to glue the pre coloured head and the sentiments in place and then stopped the clock.
Just managed to finish before the deadline and breathe lol…
Afterwards i went round all the sentiments with a black Derwent Line Painter, then when dry added another line of white.
Added the white lines to the arrows, placed the washi tape under the head and added a border of renaissance Treasure Gold.
I am really pleased with my journal page, it has turned out better than i imagined.
