Fall layout


Hello! Tatiana Yemelyanenko is here. Today I'd like to share with readers my new fall layout. I used Gelatos®, Paper Crafter Crayons™, Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and PITT® Artist Pens.

As a background I used watercolor paper. 

First I cut stencil using my Silhouette Cameo and plastic file folder (if you don't have cutting machine you can cut this rather simpe stencil by hand). Then I covered stencil with layer of repositionable adhesive spray.


 Glued stencil on the background and


 covered part of the background with Gelatos®. Then I gently blended colors by finger and


 sprayed water.


 Then I waited until my background completely dried and removed stencil. After that I added splashes of watercolor and glimmer glam using soft brush.


 For the next layer of splashes I used cold coffee.


 After coffee I decided to add more layers and used pieces of Paper Crafter Crayons™.


 I melted crayons with heat gun. It could be a little bit tricky but have a patience :).


 On the next step I drew leaves using watercolor pencils, and artist pens.


 My finished layout.




 I hope you enjoy my creation.

Really cool technique - never saw this before and you did a great job!


I've never seen a stencil or mask like that. Neat technique, and beautiful background.
