StencilGirl & Lindy’s bloghop

Good Morning friends:

Do you find it hard at times to stay creative when you just don’t have the time to really dedicate to making a “full” piece of art or art journal page?  Yeah me too.  Believe it or not, I do not always have hours to just sit and create in my studio even though I would love to.  So I have to find “creative” ways to stay creative.  I know that if I allow myself to just go days on end without touching art it leads to a creative block.

So today I’m going to show you a simple way to stay creative and keep those juices flowing.

One of the most enjoyable things to create (at least for me) are fun colorful backgrounds. I have found that when you are really pressed for time and you don’t want to pull all your paints out – wash brushes clean up pallets etc that Lindy’s Sprays are amazing to use and create luscious colorful backgrounds quickly.  Their colors add a lot of depth and dimension to your page as well as interesting visual texture and of course let’s not forget the shimmer.

In a matter of minutes you can create a bunch of gorgeous backgrounds for tags, art journal pages and more, that will be all ready to go.  Once you have a bunch of these in your stash you can take a few minutes here or there to add collage, stamps, journaling, stencils and more.

To take a peek into my process and see how I created this inspirational art card, click on the video below to enjoy some Lindy’s and StencilGirl inspiration today.

  1. Love this tutorial….did not know that about Gesso vs. White paint. Love your approach to an art journal page and love the versatile stencil with the medallion, what you called a teepee (I saw mtns), dots/circles. You know you are forcing me to go shopping lol!

  2. Sherry – LOVE this card so much!!! So beautiful!! And, I always love hearing your soothing voice on the videos. ~Rachel Bell bellbrzs (at) cox (dot net)

  3. Your Soul Card turned out beautiful…these Lindy sprays may just be somethng I can’t live without!!!

    1. Marsha thank you so much! Yes I love the Lindy’s and these together create such a yummy patina look – so earthy just what I’m craving right now.

  4. Thanks for sharing, in love with the stencils used. So many options! Love that background. Checked out some of your other posts too, fantastic

  5. I struggle with keeping those creative juices flowing too. Thanks for the inspiration! Amanda (at) meadowdance (dot org)

  6. I like your tip for quick creativity – using your too-short creative time to create some easy backgrounds. Thanks!

    1. Aww thank you so much Patty. Yes I agree there are a lot of brands out there in sprays and I do have many. I have to say if them all Lindy’s are definitely my favorite. Something very different about them not sure exactly how to explain it but they are one of a kind ❤️❤️❤️

  7. Love the idea of having some blank backgrounds ready to
    do whenever the muse hits you. Your card is fantastic.
    The white really pops. thanks for sharing

  8. Sherry – I watched the way your initial sprays turned into that amazing background – I could hardly believe my eyes! I have to get more “heavy handed” with my sprays to find our just what they can do! I also love the way you use individual components of the stencils to such great effect. Thank you for sharing your page, it was very inspiring!
