Guest DT Barbara

Hi Everyone.

I’m very happy to share with you my project as a Guest Designer of the month.

My creation is a summer layout with the new stencils from TCW.

To start things off,  I added a thin layer with clear gesso on this beautiful paper from 49 & Market.

Next, I created the texture with Distressed Lace stencil (6×6), Spanish Tile stencil (6×6), TCW white modeling paste and brown stamping pad.

I also added embossing powder in some areas to highlight the details.

To simulate a “reef” try adding a lot of embellishments, mesh cloth, flowers and micro stones as seen in the photo.

Finishing off the project with  watercolor (Distress), stamps and TCW white gesso.

You can check out the full tutorial on the video below.


I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hello Ann. Cheryl here, Design Team Coordinator, with a reply. We are a self-hosted website that uses wordpress, but not a site, so you have always been able to follow by email either by subscribing in footer or by leaving a comment and checking the appropriate box. However, I was able to add coding to our footer now that will now allow you to “Follow on WordPress” or subscribe by email. Hope this makes it easier to follow our blog posts. 🙂 Thank you.
