You Belong Art Journal Page

Welcome to another Friday with Angi! This week I had the chance to work with a few fabulous stencils from our sister company, Sweet Stamps. Pair those stencils up with Globecraft & Piccolo 3D gels, embossing enamels and accents we get an awesome art journal page!

We know we can't have it all at one time, so use what you have and order G&P items when you can. The G&P embossing enamels and 3D gels go a long way. We know you'll love the products, too!

To make this page, you'll need a few items from the G&P shop:
Embossing Enamel Powder: Copper Kettle
Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid
3D Enamel Gels: Mars Black, Satin Gold, Turquoise
Accents: LA117 Fancy Labels & Roses, LA120 Dragonflies
Glastique, gloss

Stencils (from Sweet Stamps): AS46010 Aztec Sun, AS46015 Circle Pavers

Other Supplies:
various spray inks (Tattered Angels Glimmermist, Dylusions, Tim Holtz Adirondack Color Washes)
modeling paste
stamps: flowers, alphabet

Layer the spray inks. Be sure to not waste the ink! ;) After you spray through the stencil, flip it over and use the excess ink in the negative (like a stamp). Refer to the project picture above.

Use the 3D Gels on this project by adding small amounts of water to get the consistency you need: more water to use the gels like ink and less to paint and stamp with.

The picture above shows the drips of Satin Gold over the Aztec Sun stencil.

I stamped the 'dots' below using the gels and a cut up flip flop. seriously!

Copper Kettle is a gorgeous copper powder with bits of copper glitter. LOVE the texture and shine!

So many possibilities with these Fancy Labels and Dragonflies...

I used the Circle Pavers stencil with embossing paste and then stamped over it with the gel. I can't stop looking at the colors on top and under the paste!

That's it! Hope your weekend is fabulous and full of creating!

Inky hugs,
