Hello Everyone! Shilpa here. I am so happy to share my first creation as Design Team member for Rita Barakat Designs. I have created an art journal page using Rita’s Hot Air Balloon stamp Zen Doodle. Honestly, this is the first time using an Art Foamies stamp and I love using it!
To start my journal page, I stamped the balloon image on a white piece of paper using acrylic paint. The paint gives the perfect image showing all the lovely detailed designs on it. Next, I cut the balloon out it to use as my focal point on my journal page.
On the journal page itself, I first adhered dictionary papers. Because I was going to use acrylic paint, I applied a layer of white gesso as a primer to the whole surface. I then covered almost the whole page with yellow acrylic paint and let it dry completely. At the edges of the page, I used blue acrylic paint. Before it dried, I put a net stencil on it and removed some of the blue paint with a baby wipe. For the next layer, I stenciled hearts with pink acrylic paint. For more texture, I used blue archival ink and a texture stamp, and randomly stamped the image on the page. I also printed circles with a bottle cap and some paint. Lastly, I adhered the Hot Air Balloon Zen Doodle to the journal page.

Hello friends, I am super excited to share today’s fairy on wood surface project! I did a sneak peek on my social media channels yesterday and this is the completed project for my newsletter going out later today! If you haven’t signed up make sure you do and quick! Just click on the box on the right and sign up! I was super ecstatic to receive this Basswood Country Round from Walnut Hallow – the wood piece is gorgeous, it comes plain, smooth, perfect for all your creative designs! Of course you knew I had to add a fairy on the wood!
After drawing my fairy on wood I painted with fluid acrylics by Deco Arts and I used Gelatos for skin tone shading and depth. I used pearl medium mixed with fluid acrylics for that shimmering effect. And those tiny swirls? Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen! Gorgeous colors right?
If you want to watch this project in progress and learn how to create a fairy on wood yourself make sure you sign up for my newsletter, I will be sending it out with the video link later today! I will also be on Periscope later today as well, I hope you will join me! Have a great weekend!

* If you do this, do it last as you have to set it aside to dry.
some of the elements are on top – some are underneath the cover to give depth.
On the far right I used a stencil with the iridescent paste on top of the acrylic.
OK today I am showing you three pictures of the same project
but sometimes it is hard to photograph!
What looks like a mirror above is actually
I used a Prima stencil and Gelatos to get that look in the center!
