A simple background using the microbial TCW359 stencil

Hello, My name is Leeann Pearce and I live in Victoria Australia. I am one of many new design team members for The Crafters Workshop 2015 team. I am very excited to be here today to share my first project.

I create all kinds of art and love to get my hands dirty. I love scrapbooking, cardmaking and mixed media on canvas. Today I am sharing a scrapbook page as we often forget that there are new crafters picking up this hobby daily, and knowing where to start can be a challenge.

Anyway today is all about grabbing a stencil and using it as a stamp.

I’ve used the Microbial TCW359 stencil. I LOVE this  stencil so much, I have a crazy love for circles.

Step 1: Remove stencil from packaging and place on a scrap of card stock.

Step 2: Select a spray mist of your desire and give the stencil a light spray.

Step 3: Grab your background card stock and place on top of misted stencil. A gentle press down,  but no rubbing as you could end up with smudging it and losing the design detail.LeeannTCW 4 Step 4: Flip the pressed card stock over and allow to dry.LeeannTCW 5Step 5: Clean the stencil with baby wipes or warm soap water and repeat the whole process using contrasting colour.

Once the inks  are dry, play around with your stencil stamped backgrounds. When you are happy with your design then scrap it.

…and the end result is this fabulous page with my 3 beautiful girls. Plus some close up detail shots of the stencil stamped design.
