Stenciling Transparencies


Stencilled-transparency-car
Stenciling is such a wonderful technique with so many possibilities. It's Julia Stainton here today with a project  that puts a spin on stenciling and has a great touch of glam.

There's so many different surfaces that you can stencil on. Most often I use paper but you can also stencil on fabric, canvas, wood and actually almost anything. I've been wanting to try stenciling on transparencies but not every medium is suited for adhering itself to the slick plastic surface. The new Texture Luxe™ from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  is a wonderful product and I couldn't wait to try it out and see how it worked on the transparencies.

Rita Barakat here today and I had the pleasure of working with: Planner Add On - Weather 1 Be My Guest stamp set Partly Cloudy DieAren't these tiny stamps adorable?!?


Rita Barakat
I had such a fun time with these products I made this canvas tag and used the stamps in my planner.

RitaBarakat1
I am sure you keep a busy (crazy) schedule just like me!  Add a few PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens with these weather stamps make keeping a schedule so much more fun! So how about a tutorial on the tag?

RitaBarakat6
First I drew on the edges of this little canvas tag. I spread the color around with a wet paint brush and set aside to dry.

RitaBarakat4
I used the die to cut out these sweet clouds and sun. I cover the clouds with Whipped Spackle to make them look light an fluffy!

RitaBarakat5
I smashed a little Butter Cream and mixed it with Whipped Spackle for the sun. I used  Texture Gems ™  to outline the edges.

RitaBarakat3
I stamped the words "hello sunshine" directly on the little canvas, then added the sun and the clouds with a little Gel Medium. SUch a fun little project!
