Hi!  Today, I am sharing an art journal spread that I made, using the Wings Plate.

I LOVE this set!  So many wonderful stamps to use. Backgrounds, wings (obviously), banners, words and more!

  • SCS Wings Plate
  • Pro Art Gesso
  • Ranger Distress Stains "Peeled Paint and Tea Dye"
  • Rnger Distress Ink "Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw and Bundled Sage"
  • Stewart Superior White Ink
  • Dylusions Stencil
  • White Sharpie
  • Faber Castell Pitt Pens

Paint your Journal pages with gesso.  Let dry.

Using the stencil and an old gift card (or palate knife)spread gesso over the stencil and remove the stencil. This will leave a pattern.

Apply Stains to pages, leaving the raised pattern out.  Dab off excess with a paper towel.  Then add inks to pages with a blending tool, just to fill in any white areas and make smooth color transitions.

Spray water from a mister bottle all over the pages lightly.  Let dry.  You will get an awesome blending of the stains and some water droplet spots too.

Doodle and color all over page with markers and paints.

Stamp wings in white ink and let dry.  Add some brown marker to the wings, around the edge and the inside of the wing.  Then, stamp the wings with white ink again to make a deeper and more detailed image.  Outline the wings with gold marker.  Write the text with a brown marker.

The text says
"If you were born without wings,
Do nothing to prevent them from growing."
~Coco Chanel

  1. Beautiful! I am getting tips, because I was thinking of doing some family history journals, and I would like to make the pages look interesting.

  2. Daniella, this is just great! I love the sentiment! I've seen some other quotes from Co Co. C and she certainly said some inspirational things as well as helping to change the way women looked! I love the way the misting worked and the clear instructions and tips! Great work! Julie Ann xx
