Sarinda here with a simple tutorial using Artistcellar stencils as a guild for your doodling. I know that sometimes when I want to doodle, I find it hard to start. Using stencils take out the planning part and let's you just begin. It is all about just starting a project. Go For IT... Just start.
So let's do get started.
§ Sponge brush
§ Sparkle Watercolors
Here are the stencils that I am using for this project.
Star Coral Stencil
Playful Pods Stencils
1- Here is where I started. I always pre-gesso my art journal pages. So that when I am inspired to create all I have to to is play. I had this background already prepared using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and his technique "Wrinkle Free Distress" from his first book: A Compendium Of Curiosities.
2- I placed the stencils in random places on the page leaving room for me to doodle my own creations.
3- This is mid point of the finished journal pages. I love taking pages like this to bed and just zen out before falling to sleep.
4- I added the Sparkling Watercolor to the Pods running through the page.
5- Using the white pen I added highlights to a few of the doodles. Tip: When adding highlights keep in mind the light source. Mine was from the top of the left page. So I placed the white pen marks all on the upper left hand of each doodle. This helps give your work a 3D feel.
Here are my finished journal pages.
Hope you are enjoying your midweek.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will pick up your pen and doodle some.
