Under The Sea in My Art Journal

Hello! Not much time to create lately but I did find time to play in my art journal. It's not finished yet. I have more to add but I thought I would share it.

I did use the new TCW stencil called Under The Sea .

The Crafter's Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.

I love starting with a black background and I start most of my projects with black. This is Dylusions Black Journal. I was originally going to add some tissue paper but decided to just use my fingers to add some TCW Gel Medium to the background for texture.

Then I added paint with the end of a paint brush to the background. Using TCW's new heavy body paint called Grape Jelly.

I also added some Blueberry Pie.

Using a mark making tool I added some more texture through the paint.

I used the Under the Sea stencil to start adding it to the background. 

I started adding the fish from the the stencil. I love the shape and the patterns of the fish.   

Here is what the journal spread looks like right now. This will be my "before" picture.  Wonder what it will look like in the "after" photo.  So much more to add!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
