Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Stencil and Ink

Welcome everyone!! It’s Shari here with another Art Journaling inspiration.

I’m continuing with my circle journal using inking techniques. This page features Tim Holtz Oxide inks with a stencil, but not in the typical fashion, instead, I’ve inked the stencil and pressed it onto the paper to create interesting layers of color for my background.

The colors I’ve chosen resemble Spring just because this time of year, I’m really ready for some sweet color in my life. I used only the Bursting Heart stencil which is 9″x12″ and has plenty of hearts to work with.

WATCH THE VIDEO:

This journal will eventually be set up as a reminder for myself of the techniques I love, have tried, and maybe failed. I intend to have it displayed in my craft area when I need inspiration. I’ll add notes to the back of each page of what I used and how I can improve the look. I hope I’ve given you the inspiration to start your own “Technique Journal” with your favorites as well.

  1. Wow Shari, what a unbelievable depth in this stunning page. It’s light, almost transparent and it indeed does me thinking of Spring.
    Thank you so much for sharing your stunning inspiration and have a wonderful week.

  2. So pretty Shari… I am trying to come up with some different shape cards to send my sister-in-law as she is starting chemotherapy next week. I want to keep her spirits up with at least a card a week. This would be a beautiful shape, thanks for the technique. It does look really fun.

  3. Really enjoyed the video and I love the fact that you used a circle! You do make me want to experiment with color. Thank you
