Xyron and Kleenex in an Art Journal

Video tutorial using Xryon adhesives and Kleenex in an art journal by Carolyn Dube with a few stencils too

StencilGirl Products and Xyron are playing together with a hop filled to brim with ideas for both stencils and adhesives! While playing around in my art journal with Xyron’s adhesive dots I found Kleenex gave me just the look I wanted.

Here’s the art journal page that came from the leftover paint on my palette.

I had to add a bit more color with Picket Fences, the whole rainbow wasn’t here yet….a bit of hidden journaling with a colored pencil in the background…

The canvas words were cut from a larger stencil called Words to Live By. It’s no surprise that a stencil I designed has words in it…

 

The canvas words were adhered with Xyron’s double sided high tack tape. It held the canvas extremely well!

There are colorful pieces of Kleenex attached to Xyron’s high tack adhesive dots- yes Kleenex.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks Xyron for such a great adhesive to play with!

    LOVELOVELOVELOVE this art journal! I stumbled on the Kleenex technique one day when I was sick and had them on my desk and one landed an adhesive strip I had just laid down. I thought “uh-oh” another ruined card but then decided I liked it and have been doing it ever since! I love it when an oops turns into a Woo-hoo!
    Beautiful colors and I love the different stencils! TFS!
