Wilna Furstenberg | Art to Heart workshop

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I was supposed to clean the house. Well, actually I did begin to clean the house but as always when I'm cleaning, I like to listen/watch videos from Wilna's class. So that's just what i was doing (I am currently taking the amazing Art to Heart workshop) when I suddenly got so inspired and fired up, I had to stop everything and make a layout. Cleaning can always wait, right?! :)

So here's my layout:

Very simple as Wilna would say, but with some mixed media techniques going on so, it was a little bit messy. lol

I used Wilna's Adventure collection, which you get for free if you get the class, but which you can buy without buying the class if you prefer it this way. :) I really really love this collection because it is so different than what we see in all the other companies. The african animals are just gorgeous and they are paired with the theme of adventure.

The sun rays were made using a Tim Holz stencil and molding paste mixed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray in mustard. Wilma was using a stencil to make her page in the video but she was using it with ink an gel medium. I didn't have any of that so i went with what I had. The idea of coloring the paste yellow came from a discussion we were having over on the Scrap Gals FB group about products we buy and don't use hardly enough. My sprays came to mind (I have every color + Heidi's craft mat on my desk but I rarely think of my sprays) so I decided to put them to good use. :) I really love the color it gives to my page.

Here's a close up of the die cuts. I used my silhouette to print and cut them. They are GORGEOUS, I'm telling you.

Ok, so now that I din't clean yesterday, i got to get to it! hihihi! My brother is coming for the weekend and he's arriving in a couple of hours. We're very excited about that!! :)

Have a lovely day my friends!!

I love what you did with the stencil and texture paste. I've been hiding out in my pocket pages for a while and I have a story that I really want to get started on, this is inspiring me to "break out of the pockets" and use some of my favorite art journaling techniques on a the page. Thanks for the inspiration!
