Fly Away

Evening, today I’m sharing a page from one of my art journals.

The background was made from clean up on other pages.


Fly Away, Dylusions, Dyan Reaveley, Art Journal, Mixed Media, Stamping Stencilling


Step by Step

The background for this page was in the main done using the Dyan Reaveley clean up technique when painting pages with a blending tool. You can see Dyan Reaveley showing the technique on her YouTube video ‘Dyan Reaveley Paints FAQs’.

The colours in the background are all Dylusions paints – Bubblegum Pink, Tangerine Dream, Black Marble & Lemon Zest.

There is also some stencilling in the background also from cleaning up from other pages, using the same colours as above. 

For the focal images, I’ve used an Andy Skinner Vogue stencil with Black Marble Dylusions paint.

Used a couple of Dylusions stencils to add the patterns to the Vogue ladies, using a blending tool and White Linen Dylusions paint.

Used a white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen around the edge of the Vogue ladies.

Used the masks from the Andy Skinner Vogue stencil before stamping the ‘wings’, stamps from Dylusions Love Struck Lucy set, using black Archival ink.

Stamped the border using black Archival ink and a stamp from Dylusions clear Hearts Edge set.

The circles and hearts on the page are also from the Dylusions Love Struck Lucy set too.

Stamped the text using black Archival ink and the Tim Holtz Mini Worn Text stamp set.

Coloured the border, hearts and ‘wings’ using Magic Color Fluid Acrylic inks.

Used a white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner to highlight the text and decorate the border.

    And that is how you use stencils… Gail this is superb. I love that fearless use of dramatic colour and bold patterns behind the stencilled ladies. Huge thumbs up from me. Thank you so much for joining us at A Vintage Journey xx
