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:
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.
