VIDEO: Art Journal - Easy Stenciling With A Kitchen Sponge

 

You guys know that I love a bit of easy stenciling don’t you? I mean give me a piece of paper and a pair of scissors and I’ll give you a stencil and mask to play with! It’s so lo-tech but I’ve gone even lower tech today because I have re-purposed a kitchen sponge – don’t worry it won’t be going back into the kitchen after I’ve been using it! – to make a fun and effective easy stenciling art journal page. I mean there really is no excuse for not having a go at this project!

I’ve gone for lots of texture so watch how I build it up and don’t forget to scroll down for the list of paints I’ve used and a close-up of that texture too. I’m looking forward to seeing all your kitchen sponge-stippled projects!

Oh and by the way, John Bloodworth, aka Gentleman Crafter has interviewed me for his Worldwide Wednesday series on his blog if you are interested in reading more about me! He also has a YouTube channel so do pop over and say hi to him and subscribe to his channel too!

Don’t forget to compare today’s acrylic paint method to the totally different method I shared last Wednesday where I used acrylic paint more like watercolour paint and I would love to hear your title suggestions for that project too!
