Lindy’s Stamp Gang April Color Challenge
Hello Crafty Friends! I’ve been taking the next Exploring Art Journaling Course by Christine Urias of Scraptime. Christine does a great job and providing some new techniques and combinations for art journaling. Today, instead of using the technique as described with Heavy Body Gesso and Acrylics, I decided to use the Heavy Body Gesso with Lindy’s Stamp Gang products so I can enter my page into the April Color Challenge.
I started the page with a basic layer of gesso then added the heavy body gesso through a stencil and allowed it to dry. I then applied all five of the colors with a paint brush to lay down a background. To get the colors to mix, I sprayed them with a little water.
Lindy’s products are so versatile and I was able to combined sprays, hot shots, and magical mica’s in Pink Lady Pink Flat Fabio Spray, Tilt-a-wheel Teal Hot Shot, Summer Lovin’ Sun Magical Mica, Greased Lightnin’ Green Spray, and Magnolia Magenta Gold Spray.
Then I took all the colors again and splattered them over the entire page. To add depth, I added Staz-on in Ganache with a foam applicator to the top and edges of the page. The sentiment is a stencil from Dina Wakely. I didn’t add any more because I really liked how the stencil popped with that heavy gesso. Great technique Christine!
