Hi Everyone!!! Farrel here again to share with you all a mixed media layout that I created using some older TCW stencils. If you would like to see me in action, please feel free to check out my process video which is located at the end of the blog.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started by sealing my 12×12 watercolor cardstock with TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium using my 2″ silicone brush and applying TCW9001 White Gesso to the edges of my photo. Once the edges were dry I then used Therm O Web Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Foam Sheets to add dimension to the back of my photo.
Next I used TCW541s Mini Believe Script stencil and TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste in 3 sections of the cardstock.
Once I dried the stenciled area with my heat tool, I then applied some magical shakers to the background staying in the stenciled area.
Next I used TCW454s Mini Specimens stencil and Distress Oxide ink pad – Black Soot. But because of the all the texture on the cardstock, I decided to change to TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.
For the next step I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and TCW456s Mini Sketch Grid. I used a make up sponge to apply the paint to the layout.
Now for the chipboard, I used a swiping motion to apply TCW9001 White Gesso. I used this method because I didn’t want the gesso to go into the grooves of the chipboard. Then I used Magical Shakers – Guten Tag Teal to add color to the chipboard using a paint brush.
For the Geometric Panel chipboard, I painted them with TCW90015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and used my heat tool to dry.
And to finish off the layout, I adhered all my pieces using Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and the process video xoxox
