I had a blast at CHA debuting all my stencils at the Crafter's Workshop booth. I will continue to share my summer stencil release here on the blog so you can see all 19 in detail. They are hitting the stores soon and i know BLUEMOON scrapbooking has them in NOW. Scott, the owner, ships really quickly and calls you when your order is ready. How's that for incredible customer care? They do have most of my previously released stencils in stock. i have been working hard to bring you creative inspiration. So far you have seen:
- Fancy Feathers & Giraffe Print
- Climbing Vine & Moroccan Tiles
- Mix Tape, And So On, & Squiggles
- Sweet Home, Raindrops, and Switchback
This layout (literally ;), uses both the 12x12 stencil and 6x6 stencil. I colored the background using watercolors and then layered the larger leaves using white paint the smaller leaves using black paint.
Dots & Dashes is one of those fun background patterns that can be used on almost any project. Cover the whole creations or use it in bits and pieces, either way this is one of these stencils that you will find yourself pulling out over and over again.
I completely adore both sizes of this patterned. On the left is paint & modeling paste over a distress paint background. On the right is Wendy Vecchi's clear embossing paste (Oh my goodness, it is AWESOME) with some distress stains.
My Travel Buddy Layout uses both sizes. The big blue piece off to the left is a gelatin print using my Gelli Arts printing plate. I love the monochromatic print. the smaller tags were made with distress inks. I then layered my previous stencils (Subway & Urban Landscape) over the top.
Well Rounded, oh how i love you. This stencil is similar to Confetti because it allows you control over those inky splats, rings, and cool grungy shapes. You get to decided where they land on your projects. This stencil looks great with all kinds of mediums too!
Both sizes are so much fun! On these tags i used acrylic paint and modeling paste to create layers of texture using one stencil.
Even though these images have a grungy feel, it looks great on softer projects too like this "Virtual" layout using a soft palette. I adore the way it adds those cool touches to my layouts.
