The February Challenge~Show Us Your Stenciling
The February Challenge with Craft Stamper will be "Take A Technique": Stenciling. To enter the challenge just create a project that includes some stenciling and, of course, stamping. There is no special stenciling technique that needs to be used just any kind of stenciling. If you don't own any stencils you can still participate by making your own by using die cuts or cutting your own stencil out of plastic or paper. Be creative! Here is what I created as my first project. It is a 6" by 6" canvas with some stenciling.
I began by covering my canvas with gesso and allowing it to dry. I used StazOn Studio Glaze to create the colorful background.
When I had color then I added some random stamping. When the stamping was to my liking I used some Artistcellar stencils to add texture to the canvas with gesso. The rays came from the Divine stencil which is part of the Sacred Hearts series. Then I added the circles and squares from Dyan Reaveley's Chequered Dots stencil. After the canvas had dried then I worked on my central image, a boy and his dog.
The image is an old one from Stampers Anonymous but I still love it. I colored this with the same StazOn Studio Glaze. It was stamped on glossy cardstock so I used rubbing alcohol to move the colors around and blend them. The red Studio Glaze was applied directly to the number five which makes the color very deep and shiny. Then I used pop dots to adhere this to the canvas. A simple knob and some ribbon on the top and this project is done!
Join in the fun, you have plenty of time! Stay warm ~ Hugs, Renee xxx
