Altered Magazine Art Journal Page with Kaleidoscope Stencils

Welcome everyone!

I was so excited to play with the new Kaleidoscope Series by Cecilia Swatton, Artistcellar's newest Signature Series Artist.  I love stencils that will work as a background for any theme page... and they are gorgeous to boot!

I received the stencils around the same time I was gifted some "Deli Paper".  I had heard it's all the rage in mono printing, so I thought I would test it out.  Here are the results:

I really enjoy have a set of four coordinating stencils while layering with the Gelli Plate!! 

See all the designs in detail HERE:

I then ripped and collaged pieces of the printed deli paper and glued them into my altered magazine art journal that I will been preparing to take with me on a trip to Newfoundland.  

I chose black paint and removed it with a baby wipe.

I love how you can see both the deli papers and the original magazine through the Kaleidoscope Series stencils.

You can watch the whole process, from the monoprinting to the completed background above right here:

Want to win a set of your own?  Let me know in the comment section below what your favourite stencil technique is.  Comments will close November 3rd, 12am EST and a random winner will be drawn.  Don't forget to check out all the other wonderful artists below!! ***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*
