Globecraft & Piccolo - You Belong Art Journal Page

Happy Friday!
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!

(my page is inspired in part by Wildflowers by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.)

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 BlackSatin GoldTurquoise
Accents: LA117 Fancy Labels & RosesLA120 Dragonflies
Glastique, gloss

Stencils (from Sweet Stamps): AS46010 Aztec SunAS46015 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,
