Splashes of colour

Hi everyone, Beck BT here today sharing with you a fun background I created with the help of The crafter’s Workshop stencils.  Although I was going for a fun and colorful layout I still wanted to add a little grunge and the stencils were just perfect for this.

I used the following stencils to create this layout:

tcw458    tcw457

TCW 456 – Coffee Splotch & TCW457 Gothic Romance

I used the distressed circles with coloured texture paste to accent previously added stamping and paint.  I love how the raised circle against the flat area gives that added texture

Although a rather bright and cheery page I wanted to add a little grunge.  So instead of stencilling with thicker mediums such as texture paste, impasto or gel medium I chose to just use some paints.  In this case I used DecoArt Gloss enamels through the top left portion of the gothic romance stencil for some grungy patterning.

I would love to hear how you enjoy layering your stencilling and also how you give different textures with them to your pages, so please leave a comment to let me know how I might have inspired you to add some stencilling in various ways to your project.

Happy Creating!

  1. Brilliant lots of lovely texture and designs and colours. I did use this in mind layering stencils on my latest calendar page, but went back to basics using just ink.
