The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 5 – Stencil a Mirrored Image
Happy 4th of July (if you’re from the US 😉 )! We are 5 weeks into the Stencilfied Journal collaboration between StencilGirl and Tina Walker and this week’s prompt is about mirrored images. Stencils are perfect for creating a mirrored image in your art journal. I picked Sandee Setliff’s new tea stencils as well as the Spirit Swirl from Valerie Sjodin, which I think fits perfectly as the steam of the tea.

I started by creating a background in light colors. Just a little wash with Butter and then a layer of Tangerine Twist blended with a dry brush through the swirl stencil. I watered both paints down, so they blended better and so they were not too vibrant. Next, I added different shades of orange ink to the bottom of the left page, turned the art journal around and let them run down. I did the same for the right page, but upside down, meaning I added the ink to the top of the page and let it run down.

After everything was dry, I stenciled the doily to the bottom of both pages by blending Tangerine Twist and Smoked Paprika through it, which created a neat ombre effect. I made sure that this is really dry, so the white paint that I used to stencil the tea cup doesn’t get colored. I also added more white dots and a pattern to the mug with my new Marvy Uchida DecoColor paint pen. The dried paint from the pen is shiny, which made it stand out nicely.

The page needed a little more contrast. That’s why I decided to outline the mug with the black Marvy Uchida gel pen and added a few highlights here and there. At the end, I added a shadow underneath the mugs using the same pen.
