Be Anything But Predictable II Chrissi Mannix

Hello Lovelies,
I have an art journal page to share with you today using lots of Bee Arty Stencils, and the fabulous Artist Inks. Artist Inks are some of my favourite mediums to play with.


I wanted to get messy and arty, and what better way than to make an art journal page using some of my fave inks. I wanted some texture in the background, so I started by applying crackle paste through the A4 Imprinted Stencil. 

Then it was time to play with my Artist Inks. I enjoy using them, not only in the massive range of colours they come in, but also when you mix them together, you get completely new colours. When mixing to make a new colour, I add drops of ink onto the page together. To get a mixed colour you always need to add wet to wet. Then I spritz with water and let them blend.

Once I had my colour I started to play with my stencils. I did try stamping to start with, but due to the crackle paste and texture in the background, it just didn't work very well, so I covered that up with some stenciling and black paint.

I used a mixture of stencils;

I used mostly black paint for the stenciling, but I did go back over my title with white paint to make it stand out more. I added splatters in both white and black paint, one to use up any spare paint I had, and two, because I love splatters and I love the messy look lol.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I created today, Back you soon.
