Take a Shower Art Journal Page…or Negative Circuit Stencil

Loved creating this art journal page using my new Stencil Girl Product Circuit Stencil


The Journaling says “Shower in the good things of life and your heart will shine”.

I had created a background with Dylusions Spray Paints and had it in my art journal for later usage. Something I do often when I spray a stencil is using the excess paint on top of the stencil for a different project as a negative.

Here I had sprayed  onto a different page in the art journal with Liquitex Professional Spray paint


I then simply flip the stencil over to a different page- either already prepared with a painted background or onto a white one – and brayer over it to get the excess paint over.


Which can then result in something like this


And then I took it from there to create my art journal page. And yes…I might be I am biased regarding my own stencil but boy do I love the negative outcome of it too. So basically you get a pretty cool two-in-one design.


BTW…did you spy something else on the page? 😉 😉 😉


Have a wonderful day!
huge hugs



  1. Hi!
    I just love this Art Journal. 🙂 And the stencil – WOW! 🙂 I can barely wait for Scrap-Perra to get them at his store.

    I wanted to ask you if it is ok, for you, if I borrow this page for a lift challenge for the Swedish inspirational blog http://www.swescrapbook.blogspot.com Me and my DT members will be using it as an inspiration, and create an Art Journal from that. Is that ok?

    Not sure what you are referring too since there is lots of fun stuff to reference Nat.
    The woman is pretty awesome and the fruit looks like it might be a stamp.
