Welcome 2017!! Happy New Year to you all and welcome to The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #32!! Our challenge this month ... Put a Stencil on It, sponsored by Stencil Girl Products!
I absolutely LOVED this challenge!! I had so much fun - I just love the stencils that I got to play with this month!! I actually have two projects ... you will just have to come back on the 15th to see the other one!!
But now, you need to come and play with us at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!! Grab your stencils and start to play!!! Then come and join us so that you can have the random chance to win a prize!!
And here is my 1st Project for the Month!
I started out by applying Gesso to the back of an 8x8 deep canvas to strengthen the canvas.
Then I applied gesso and Viva Decor white Crackle paste all over the top!
After it dried I got out the stencil, an old credit card and Heidi Swapp metallic texture paste. I used both silver and gold! I also took some silver and wiped it over the dried crackle to give some color to the cracks! I originally wanted to use this quote, but it ended up not fitting onto the canvas like I wanted! I'll use it another time!
This stencil from Stencil Girl is called Rose Window - you can find here at the Stencil Girl Website!
I love, love, love this stencil!! After the metallic paste dried, I put the stencil back on top and put clear crackle paste over the top of the entire stencil for even more crackling effect.
So come and play!! And come back on January 15th and see my next Stencil Girl Project!!
