Hi and thank you for stopping by my blog! I’m so excited to be taking part in this StencilGirl / Lindy’s Gang Blog Hop. For me, this was a wonderful opportunity to bring together products from two companies that I’m crazy about,
This is a BIG blog hop, full of inspiration from both creative teams, so after you’re done here be sure to hop on over to the other blogs and comment along the way for a chance to win the Giveaway!
I started with a spiral bound media journal and gave it a generous layer of gesso. I taped off the handle so as to not get gesso on it.
Once the gesso was dry, I used modeling paste and the Fleur Mix Stencil to add some texture to the cover.
I added color using some of Lindy’s fabulous sprays. The colors I used were:
- Tears On My Pillow Tangerine
- Summer Lovin’ Sea
- Mango Mania
- Autumn maple Crimson
After hitting it with a heat gun, I used the New Orleans 4 stencil and a bit more modeling paste to add some contrasting texture.
While that dried, I sprayed some resin moulded flowers with Autumn maple Crimson Lindy’s spray then rubbed a bit of gesso lightly over the tops of each to enhance the ridges and grooves.
I added some scraps of trim that I had in my stash and an old photo, then added Sandra Dee Sepia spray and touches of Magical Shaker in Guten Tag Teal for contrast.
To finish it off, I added some burlap and lace butterflies and mounted all the pieces to my journal using hot glue.
Thank you for following along. Please leave a comment below for a chance to win the giveaway prize!
