Hi Karenliz here.
Have you ever started a project and realized you didn’t have the right tool to complete it? It can be very frustrating. It happened to me when I wanted to make a card with a window but didn’t have the die to put through my die cutting machine. Look at your stencils! I wanted a round window and using these two stencils I created my card.
Using the Moroccan Tiles stencil I took a piece of cardstock, traced my tile and cut it out. I added acrylic and crackle paint to my new window to make it look aged.
If you look closely you can see all the cracks. I didn’t use heavy paper so it warped a little but if you put it under something heavy it will flatten. My next step I created the background with the Harlequin stencil, black acrylic paint, matte gel medium and then painted over it with a wash of gray paint. With archival and distress inks I created the window scene and attached the window. My last touch was a big fat furry spider.
Remember there are amazing windows, doors, and portals in stencils. You just have to look a little closer and you will see them.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
