Hi there! Today I am sharing a simple scrapbook layout using one of the 12×12 stencils and gel medium as a resist for paint.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
This large doodling stencil looks like a giant postmark stamp to me and a bit like a ring left from a drink on the table. I thought it would be great for a vacation photo and decided to use a photo from a beach trip a couple years ago.
I used this matte gel medium and a small palette knife to apply the gel onto a piece of white cardstock. I didn’t apply it too thick, but did cover all of the stencil.
After the gel dried completely, I used several mists in various colors of blue and teal. As soon as I misted over the cardstock with paint, I used a baby wipe to wipe the paint off the stenciled area.
The gel looked like thick white paint and all the mist wiped right off. It acted as a perfect resist medium. I cut my photo down to a small square to fit inside the frame part of the stencil.
I trimmed down one side and added some patterned paper on one side. I added a couple die cut tags and circles, puffy stickers and a couple date stamps.
This will definitely become a new favorite technique to use with my stencils!
Thanks for stopping by today! You can follow the link below to the stencils I used:
