Dina Wakley Spring Inspired Journal Spread by Laura Dame

In this tutorial, Laura Dame uses products from the latest Dina Wakley MEdia release to create this delightful spring inspired journal spread.

Instructions 

Maybe it’s the fact that my flowers are blooming, but when I saw the stencils in the new Dina Wakley MEdia release, I couldn’t help but think of spring! The Sideways stencil looks like little tulips when you turn it sideways (ha!), don’t you think? Let’s use it (and a few other things) to make a spring inspired spread in our art journals!

Step 1: Using a #24 round brush, spread two colors on your background. Here Cheddar and Turquoise was used.

Step 2: While it’s still wet, place the Pointed stencil over the painted background. Using a baby wipe, wipe away some of the color. This will make a reverse stencil effect.
