Hi Everyone, Beck BT here again with what is probably the brightest share I have done in a long time. I just loved building the layers in the canvas with the help of various colours and stencilling. There was lots of you commenting that you don’t use your reversed chicken wire stencil enough. It is actually my all time favourite stencil so you see it pop up lots in my work. I adore how it can add that bit of interest without being too overpowering. For a little depth and interest I added some stencilling with the purple gelato that had been applied through the ‘Mum’s‘ Stencil(TCW259) and softened with a water brush to the initial layer in the canvas. You can see it in the background to the yellow area of the canvas. I use the ‘Mum’s’ Stencil(TCW259) to create the flower like patterning. I added the pattern with some Whipped Spackle to the background prior to colouring with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Gelatos. I also mixed the pink gelato with their Whipped Spackle colouring it up and then stencilling with the reverse Chicken wire template adding an additional layer of colour.
I really enjoyed teaming up the stencilling using the stencils and lot of colour with the gelatos, they are like a match made in heaven!
I would love to hear how you enjoy layering your stencilling, so please leave a comment to let me know I might have inspired you to add some stencilling in various ways to your project.
I do have to say this was my first try at stenciling on burlap….
I was very unsure of how it was going to work
due to the weave of the fabric and the density of the fibers…
but I was going to give it a try anyways!
Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here again today to share how stencils can add the perfect soft finish to your projects. Sometimes it is the sublte layers that set your projects apart and make them more eye catching.
I created some fun stamping into the background for interest. I always like my photos to be centre of attention and while creating this layout I just knew it needed a special finishing touch and something to soften the background colours a little. I didn’t want anything that was going to over power the photo so decided on some white texture paste.
I took my reversed Chickenwire stencil (TCW 259) and added the pattern to the almost finished layout, and suddenly it looked finished. It is a amazing what some texture paste and a stencil can do!
Here is a close up of the stencilling:
I hope you enjoyed my share today and I have inspired you to use your stencils for that perfect finishing touch on your next project!
