Grateful Heart Journal Page for Artified

Hello!  Its my turn to share my project from the 'Mini Kit' for Artified. I am not usually a minimalist and usually have everything but the kitchen sink on my pages but for this project I wanted to stick with the products from the kit adding only a couple of other basic supplies to the project.  Once I wrapped my head around that, it was actually a quick and easy page. Inside the box we had:

To start my page I took the stencil, Deli paper and the Sunkissed Coral paint and stenciled some 'stripes' onto the deli paper, I wanted some contrast so I did the same using Black Archival ink.


 Once the paint was dry I cut the Deli Paper into strips to resemble 'washi tape'  



  I then took the Watercolor paper and cut it in half.  I sprayed the paper heavily with water and added a little of the paint to the left side and also just the middle on the right side with a sponge and then randomly added my Deli Paper 'washi' strips.



 I painted over the strips with a thin coat of white Gesso and once dry took the Stabilo pencil and drew around the edges of the strips.  I activated the pencil with a little water and used my finger to blend the lines a little. I also added a little scribbly journaling for interest.



I scribbled onto my craft mat with the pencil and added some water, then using a paintbrush I picked up a little of the 'grey' colour to add some small splatters to my page.

I drew a heart onto the piece of leftover watercolor paper, cut it out and then painted it with the Sunkissed Coral Paint adding Black Archival Ink around the edges for definition.


 I have popped the heart up onto a little foam tape and added a 'Chit Chat' sticker to finish off.
