The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 3

Our weekly prompt (number 3 already) for #thestencilfiedjournal told us to stencil on a leaf and add it to our journal. I found a sycamore leaf during a dog walk at Cockmuir and fitted as much as possible of it onto a page of my 3.5 x 5.5" (9 x 14cm) journal. Before adding it I stencilled on it with white titanium acrylic paint, using stencil L565 Looping Leafy Vines from Stencilgirl® Products . Remember the #thestencilfiedjournal is the brainchild of Tina Walker and we are only using stencils by Stencilgirl®. The leaf was sealed with matte medium to preserve it.
The leaf was added to the background, made using the same stencil as well as collage with tissue wrap by Tim Holtz. I used a quotation by William Wordsworth that reads: "Nature never did betray the heart that loved her".
It makes for a lovely memory of a wonderful dog walk in full sunshine, specially when contemplating the rain and wind outside at the moment. On the plus side those are doing a great job distressing the page from prompt 2 that is still hanging outside my window.

Art Cards 152 - 160

Here is the next set of 9 art cards. Remember these cards are part of my #365somethings2018 project on Instagram where I hope to end up with 365 cards, one for each day of 2018. If you want to see them appear individually each day you can find them all on my Instagram feed.
You will have seen some of these cards before as they were part of the set of 9 that I made as my May Project for Stencilgirl® Products in my capacity as monthly Guest Designer. You can therefore find a step-by-step tutorial for theseon the Stencilgirl®Talk webpage. I am feeding all these cards gradually into my stream of numbered cards for each day of 2018.

I have temporarily stopped working on the prompt for Joggles Art Journal Adventure to participate in #thestencilfiedjournal as well as my 365 art cards. There is only time for so much and there is a quilt to be made too. I'm also thinking about new projects to come, but that won't happen till next year (and it's only June!).
