Aacckkk! Just too much to do once we get warm spring sunshine – sitting inside with the blog is just not going to happen in the daylight. Today we are having our third rainy day in a row so I may get caught up!
I am testing and practicing making sample covers for Art Camp for Women. See below for previews!
This cover uses a Julie Fei-Fan Balzer stencil, Pan Pastels, and a collaged bird all sealed with gloss gel medium.
First I put down a layer of gesso, then stenciled with modeling paste. I used a stencil by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer from The Crafter’s Workshop, colored with Pan Pastels. I then tried some sculpting with an old credit card for more texture to the left. Then sealed it all carefully with gloss gel medium.
On this cover I textured the gesso first and then stenciled with modeling paste. Again used Pan Pastels for the color and sealed with gloss gel medium. This stencil is an Artist Cellar design. I get The Crafter’s Workshop stencils and my Artist Cellar stencils through the ArtistCellar online store.
