Distress Oxide Inks and Stencils - A Stencilgirl Blog Hop

Tim Holtz Blog Hop Header.jpg

When I heard that we were going to be doing a blog hop with Tim Holtz I was very very excited! Ranger products were some of the very first ones that I ever bought in my mixed media journey and they have remained a staple every since then!

Stencilgirl are having an amazing give away as well so be sure to scroll to the end to see how you can be in with a chance of winning!

Working with the Distress Oxide Inks and Stencilgirl stencils is a match made in heaven as far as I am concerned. I'm sharing with you a great resist technique in my mixed media art journal using gesso and the distress oxide inks from Tim Holtz. Follow along my mixed media technique with my video.

When we got the choices of products I knew straight away I wanted to try out the new Distress Oxide Inks in my art journal. I have to say I normally have no problems working my stencilgirl products along with new supplies but I was a little stumped with the inks. How could I get them to work with my stencils?

Having a play

I was playing in my sketchbook with a few ideas and then I had a thought about using them with Gesso. Would the Gesso change the color? How would it react if I used Gesso as my "paint" with a stencil?

The end result

I discovered a really cool technique using the Gesso which I am excited to share with you today. The technique worked especially well with the Klimt Forest stencil I picked for my art journal page. I hope you enjoy the video tutorial!

100 Days of Found Poems - Poems Ninety One to One Hundred

100 Days of Found Poems - Using found words from the novel "Cranford" I'm creating 100 mixed media art works using found ephemera and scraps I have in my stash. I've created an Art Journal Walk through of all the pieces in this unique mixed media project.  Follow along with @kgaunt #mixedmedia #artjournal #found poem #foundpoetry

I'm sharing my 100 Days Project here on the blog for your with a video walk-through of all of my found poems broken into sets of ten.

For 2017 I decided to create 100 found poems using the novel "Cranford" as my source material. Working with words and phrases from the novel I have made these found poems on envelopes, postcards and all sorts of found ephmera. Using what I have to hand I have created this project in an A5 ring binder journal to create a unique Art Journal to house this project.
