Good morning! Nicole here with a fun mixed media sign I created for fall. Fall is my favorite time of year and I am so excited to share how I created this sign with you. For this project, I am using the TCW9072 Mixed Media Sign Board, TCW2425 Pumpkins in a Row stencil, TCW2435 Hello Pumpkin stencil and stencil butters.
Disclaimer: “The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.”
To begin, I used washi tape to tape down the TCW2425 Pumpkins in a Row stencil to prevent the stencil from slipping while I am applying the stencil butters.
Next, I selected the stencil butters I wanted to use for this project. I decided to use my favorite colors… Chartreuse, Marigold, Fuchsia and Turquoise.
Before applying the stencil butters, I had to decide which order I wanted the colors to go across the stencil. I used a palette knife to spread the Turquoise stencil butter through the different areas of the stencil first. When applying the stencil butter, try to use a generous amount of the stencil butter and apply it carefully through the stencil going in one direction to prevent the smears.
I cleaned the palette knife between each color so that the colors do not mix. Notice how I dabbed some of the Fuchsia over the Turquoise. I did this on purpose because I wanted the pumpkins to be multi-colored. You will see how I did this throughout this tutorial. Basically, once I finished coloring the pumpkin, I dabbed the excess over the turquoise.
Next, I grabbed the Marigold Stencil Butter and pulled the medium through the stencil using a different palette knife. Notice how I added a touch of orange to the other pumpkins. This process was so therapeutic for me! I had so much fun playing with the stencil butters.
Lastly, I applied the Chartreuse stencil butter to the remaining pumpkins using another palette knife.
Before I lifted this, I made sure all of the images were covered. I noticed that the last pumpkin was not finished… so I added a little bit of stencil butter to cover the area before I carefully, lifted the stencil.
I am so pleased with how this turned out! I let this dry a few hours and then I came back to add the sentiment using the TCW2435 Hello Pumpkin Stencil.
I used the Turquoise stencil butter for the “hello” sentiment. Once that was completely dry, I used the Fuchsia stencil butter for the “pumpkin” sentiment.
