These new bottles of Dina Wakely Media paints are the perfect size to take along with my journal on a road trip.
It’s so easy to pack a tote with my journal and fill up my designer accessory bags with paints, a few favorite stamp sets and a few stencils. You could even bring a bunch of pre-stamped images and tags to use as well.
Step 1: To begin the page, apply some gesso with a palette knife and let it dry. I did not cover the entire page, but instead left areas blank here and there.
Step 2: Add some paints onto each side of the journal spread, scraping them down with the palette knife.
Step 3: Begin to create layers by removing paint with a baby wipe through the Pinwheel stencil.
Step 4: Continue to use various stencils to add and subtract paint and build even more layers.
Step 5: Add a layer of Night paint across the center of the page. Subtract some paint with the stencil to reveal the layers underneath.
Step 6: Add some words to the page using white paint through the Affirmation stencil.
Step 7: Stamp one of the Silhouetted Women onto a piece of tissue wrap using Jet Black Archival Ink and cut it out.
Step 8: Paint and stencil a Distress Heavystock tag, then adhere the Silhouetted Woman image to the tag. Cut a phrase from the Scribbly Wings set and adhere it to the tag.
Step 9: Add tag into journal using Printed Media Tape.
Step 10: To finish the page, add some stars by stenciling Gilt paint through the Variegated Stars stencil, layering some of the stars onto the tag.
