Happy September crafty friends! Hard to believe another month is gone from this year!
I have had this Instagram photo in a “to be documented” pile and was inspired by the square format to use other grids and square shapes.
I used the 3 stencils below with a combination of mixed media ink, spray mist, ink and modeling paste.
I started with the 12×12 Oblong Doodling Template on white cardstock and a mix of 3 different ColorBox Media Inx.
I concentrated the teal color under the largest square, where I planned the photo to be and worked out from there. After trimming the cardstock, I mounted the painted grid onto a couple different patterned papers.
I had several tags, including a canvas one, that I stenciled distress ink using the Mini Life Tidbits calendar stencil. I added another layer of gold modeling paste with the 2015 over the canvas tag.
Wanting to add some color and texture under the photo, I misted some vellum with the 6×6 Tangled Web stencil. I liked the combination of grungy grid with the larger irregular background.After layering the vellum and stenciled tags, I added the photo with 3-dimensional adhesive onto the background. I cut a couple rectangles out of the background with a craft knife to let the patterned papers show. I also used lots of stitching to secure the pieces down and add texture.You can follow the links below to the stencils I used.
