Gentle Human Art Journal page – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s again time for another STAMPlorations mixed media tutorial and this time I created something for my art journal.

As a starting point I used a paper sheet created with a gelli plate and the magazine transfer technique. However, this particular page did not quite turn out as expected, so I repurposed it as a starting point paper for this art journal spread, because I really liked the color combination on it.

I used many stencils with acrylic paints to create the colorful background and then fussy cut some human shapes very freely and used those as masks. Then finished the page with dark acrylic paint tones and finally added the journaling with a white pen. For better understanding, I created a video with all steps involved.

Here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch – I hope you enjoy it!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
