Our new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is to Use A Stencil or Two, or more if you want, we wouldn't want to spoil your fun!
My page started with a very rough covering of Gesso before spraying Speckled Egg Oxide and rubbing in places with a tissue. On the lighter side I used Speckled Egg DI to stencil through the TH Gothic stencil. I applied Texture paste through a circle stencil then sprinkled with white EP, which was heated before drying to give a bubbly texture. (really I didn't have time to wait!)
As I planned to colour my flower and add the quote using Aged Mahogany DI, I decided to incorporate this colour into the background using a script stencil. My quote was heat set for more definition.
I hope you will get your stencils out and join us in this fun theme and for more inspiration, the Design Team have some fabulous projects to show on the main blog, so please pop over.
As there's a single flower on my page, I'm joining in the fun over at Art Journey Journal where Orange Esmeralda has chosen this months theme A Single Flower.
Well, things are definitely neglected here in the craft room and I'm sorry I don't get to visit very often, but babies take priority! They had their first injections last week and were a bit fretful from the Rotavirus vaccine, so Grandma felt like she was doing an aerobic exercise class with weights and noise!
I keep telling my daughter she needs to grow an extra pair of hands - they usually want feeding and winding at the same time, twins are lovely, but too much for one.
Today is a day off - yay! so I hope to do some catching up and hopefully some visiting.
Thanks for calling in and have a great day,
