Good Things Happen When StencilGirl Meets Lindy's Gang

Welcome to Day 2 of this fabulous blog hop!
I have a confession....
I had never used Lindy's Gang Products until this hop...
And now I am on my third order from the company!
The Starburst Shimmer Sprays are my favorite!

Where have they been all my life?
(....insert dramatic crescendo music....)
Seriously, where?

You know I love making art journals.
Sometimes I don't even know I've started another journal
until I am most of the way done with it.

Here I was just having fun spraying those Starburst Shimmer Sprays 
and layering them to see how they mixed and blended.
And then it was...Yep, That's a book cover.

Here is how they started out.
My go-to Curlicue Floral as the base.

Then more layers and delicious shimmery drips.

Until we came to this!

Wow that was fun!

Then two more... but a little different approach.
I have some 12x12 deli paper that I layered and stenciled on.
I experimented with acrylic paints layered with the sprays.

 I used the X-12 and the Gridded stencils in the layers here.

When I was happy with the paper I glued it onto
some cardboard for book covers and proceeded from there.

I love the crinkly deli paper look!

My Green inside book covers are scrapbook paper cut and glued to fit.
Then some Starburst Sprays on top through the Curlicue Floral stencil.
The blue versions are acrylic paints as the base and a Krylon spray paint through 
the 9x12 stencil in the February 2018 StencilClub Kit.

There you go!
I admit I have a dozen projects going on using these
I highly recommend them!
