I love to create my projects on different surfaces and constantly looking for some everywhere I go. This project was created on plastic/acetate. I work for a tax accountant and during our busy season our clients fill out a booklet with all their tax information. This booklet has a semi-transparent cover and we pull the booklet apart to scan and I keep the plastic covers. I am creating a new art journal with all these semi-transparent pages and this is my first page.
Here are the supplies I used:
- Semi-transparent plastic
- TCW779 Wild Roses Stencil
- TCW737s Love Sonnet Stencil
- TCW568s Moving Vines
- TCW9004 Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste – My favorite!!!
Did you know that the “s” after the stencil number mean it’s 6″x6″?
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
This piece of plastic is approximately 8×10. It has a shiny smooth side and a lightly frosted side. On the shiny side I used the Love Sonnet Stencil but I added the stencil backwards so when I flipped it I can read the words as you can see below.
When it was dry I flipped it over to start my page. First I only wanted to use a portion of the Wild Roses stencil so I used painters tape around the sections I wanted to use.
I added the roses to the page with TCW Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste. My favorite next to the metallic modeling pastes!!!!
The paste dried and I added paint marks to the background using a paint brush and Moving Vines stencil.
To finish it I added the quote with archival ink.
I love the working on this plastic and can’t wait to create more. Have you used an unusual surface for your art? Tell us inquiring minds want to know!!!
