Today I have a quick and easy project using stencils, paint, and washi tape. Read on.

TCW supplies:
TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet, TCW9015 Black Licorice,
TCW755 Modern Lace, TCW757 Circle of Jewels
TCW763 Alphabetica

White tags, washi tape, sticker words

Since the tags were already white, I didn’t gesso them. I applied strips of washi tape to mask off white lines; and made sure to press the tape securely so the Raspberry paint didn’t bleed underneath.

Next, I painted the tags with the Raspberry Sorbet paint, and dried them.

The last step was to stencil the tags with the Black Licorice paint. Once they were stenciled, I carefully removed the washi tape so the paint didn’t stick.

I added ribbons and sticker words to finish them. As a gift tag, simply write To:/From on the back with a short note. Or write a longer message on the back of the tags, and mail them to a special someone. These tags even make pretty bookmarks!

In my large journal, I created a spread using the washi tape as a mask; but this time, I used a grid system and 4 colors with the black. After applying the washi tape, I painted the grid sections with the 4 colors and dried that. Next I stenciled Alphabetica with Black Licorice paint and carefully removed the washi tape, then dried the spread. And voilà!

I hope this post inspired you to try masking and stenciling using The Crafter’s Workshop Winter 2018 stencils or any of their other amazing stencils.
