Cool kid

Hi there, Sanna here today! I´d like to share with you an easy and simple way I love to use stencils on my layouts. I love the effect you can create with them and I very often use a stencil with some modeling paste just as it is. I simply wipe the paste thru the stencil onto the background and use the stenciled details to enhance my photos. I then only add a few embellishments and/or some pieces of patterned paper, the title and some journaling and my layouts is done.

On this layout I have used the “Geometric Art Layers” & the “Random Stars” stencils. I really like the contrast on the white paste against the dark background paper. Simple and effective :).

I hope you get inspired to try some modeling paste on your artworks! Have fun!

Together….You and Me!

Today I am sharing a card I whipped up awhile back.

I created my background by applying
crackle embossing paste through
TCW428s ~ Mini Climbing Vine Reverse

After the paste had dried….
I loosely applied Glimmer Mist, with a paintbrush
over the stenciled image.

I, then, loosely traced around the stenciled/painted image.

To finish off my card,
I added flowers and butterflies over the stenciled Climbing Vine.

Thank you for stopping by to view my card.
Hope you enjoyed it!

Cards in fall colours

Hi there, today I´d like to share three fall cards in fall tones. I´ve also taken some step-by-step photos while creating the cards. Lets start with card no. 1.

First I inked the white card base with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then added some water splatters onto the surface.

I then took the “Vineyard” 12×12 inch stencil, placed in over the card and added some Barn Door and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the card.

After that I used my all time favorite Hero Arts stamp Old Letter Writing and stamped with Forest Moss Distress Ink tone. This is how the card looks like:

The sentiments are made with Tim Holtz Hashtag stamp set stamps and the butterflies are older product from my stash. Now onto the second card:

I made this card background using the leftover ink that had stayed on the stencil after inking it for the first card. I first sprayed some water mist onto the inky area and then placed a piece of watercolour paper onto that area and rolled over it with a brayer. That way the end result will be nice and even. So these are actually the same colours as on the previous card, but in much lighter tone due to the water spray.

SONY DSC

This way I didn´t waste any ink and could create a nice negative stencil image background for my second card. I wanted to keep the main focus on the pretty background pattern and therefore just added some yarn, a pin, butterflies and a sentiment onto the card. Now let´s move to the third card:

I again used the same Distress Ink tones like on my previous cards. This time I placed the stencil over a piece of white paper and just wiped the red Distress Ink onto the background thru the stencil. The stencil is again the 12×12 inch “Vineyard” one.

SONY DSC

Next I went and wiped some Wild Honey Distress Ink over the stenciled image and then used the 6×6 inch “Vineyard” stencil to add some light texture paste over the inked area.

SONY DSC

Before the paste was totally dry, I quickly added a layer of yellow Distress Glitter over the paste and let it dry. After it was totally dry I dabbed the residue off. It stayed put really well – you just need to work fast. If the paste has time to dry the glitter will not stick.

And this is how the finished card looks like. I didn´t add a sentiment on the cover, as I found this card didn´t really need one. Depending on the occation, one can write the sentiment on to the inside later. Here are some closies of the cards.

I had lots of fun creating these cards and layering the stencils, stamps and media over each other. Now it is your turn – have fun!!!

Fragment Fun….

Howdy Crafter’s Workshop Fans…..
Have you played with TCW Fragments yet??
Lynne Forsythe here with one of my latest projects
using one of these little goodies!

Be The Heroine by Lynne Forsythe

The fragment I used is by Ronda Palazzari ~ Hearstrings ~ TCW2049.

2035HeartstringsFragments

I, first, created the background of my card face by stamping and spritzing
on a Kraft Skinny Card.

Then, I “roughly” applied Embossing Paste through the Heartstrings fragment,

Be The Heroine by Lynne Forsythe

on the upper and lower corners.

When dry I gave the “hearts” a good spritz of Glimmer Mist!
Which made those Heartstring hearts just pop.
I finished off the card with odds and ends I had laying
around and finished it up with a quote.

If you haven’t played with some of these little ditties….you should give
them a try….I know I loved the results!

I have first used 3 sheets of the Core’dinations heavyweight white cardstock (cut in half) and misted them with spray inks. Then I have either added a plain white texture paste thru the stencils onto the surface or mixed a transparent texture paste with black acrylic paint together and applied that thru the stencils onto the surface. On some cards I´ve added both. On a few cards there is also a layer of transparent texture paste mixed either with loose glitter or I have just applied the paste thru a stencil and then added a layer of Distress Glitter over the wet paste. Other than that I have just embellished the cards and added the sentiment. Super fun and very easy to do!

Happy stenciling!!!
