Art Journal Spread, Sugar Skull

Hello and Happy Thursday!

I am up again today on the Frog Dog Studio blog, with an Art Journal I created using the Exclusive Frog Dog Studio stencil in the Limited Edition Kit.


I love the beauty in Sugar Skulls.  I love the bright colors, the floral designs, and the delicate details.  When I created this stencil, I envisioned Beauty, in Imperfection.

I thought this stencil would make for a wonderful Art Journal spread.  I used the negative space to create detail and used bright and bold colors!

Before we get to my video tutorial today, let me share several close-ups.






And my video...

 


For my second project, I wanted to create another project with the Exclusive stencil, so I used the 9x12 canvas included in the Limited Edition kit and created a simple canvas full of texture, color, and lots of Lindy's Stamp Gang product.


I started creating texture by adding Glitter Paste to my canvas with a flower TCW stencil I had in my stash.  I let it dry completely before adding color.

I layered several Lindy's Moonshadow Inks, Lindy's Sprays, and some sprays from my stash to create the background.  I love how the Glitter paste peeks through the inks and sprays.



Once I was happy with my background, I outlined the stencil using a Embossing Pen.  I added the embossing powder from the Main kit and melted.  I am so happy with how this turned out.



I had never used Lindy's embossing powder before this kit, but I must say I'm addicted.  I have added several additional colors to my personal stash and have fell in love with embossing all over again.

What product have you used lately that you love?  Have you re-discovered a product.  I'd love to know.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great week!
