Day One Stencil Girl and Ken Oliver Crafts Blog Hop


Hello everyone!  Today, is the first day of the Stencil Girl and Ken Oliver Crafts Blog Hop.  Designers and Style Contributors from both teams have come together to create some fabulous projects using products from both companies.  We hope to inspire you!


For my project I designed a 8 x 10 mixed media canvas board and I have a tutorial to share with you.


First I applied a layer of white gesso to the canvas.  Once that was dry then I used the 6 x 6 Rembrandt's Words Small Stencil and added a layer of the crackle texture paste.


Once the crackle texture paste was dry then I misted the entire canvas with water and sprinkled a little bit of the Ultramarine Blue Color Burst on to the canvas.  Here you can see the Color Burst already starting to activate with the water.


I used a large watercolor brush and kept adding more water to move the Color Burst around the canvas until I achieved a look I liked.  If you get more than you would like in one spot you can use a paper towel to lift up a little of the color.  Set this aside to dry or you can use a heat tool.


Sorry, I know it's a little hard to see exactly what I am doing in this picture from all of the texture paste lol.  Here I am using the 9 x 12 Nosegay Stencil and adding a layer of the crackle texture paste.


After the crackle texture paste was dry then I started to watercolor the flowers using Color Burst.  I used Alizarin Crimson for the flowers.  Here you can see a close up of the Color Burst as soon as I applied it to the crackle texture paste.  I love how it fills in all the little cracks and makes the flowers really pop.  I mixed a few colors of the Color Burst to create a darker green.  I used Pthalo Green, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, and Lemon Yellow.


Next I used the Lamp Black Click It Ink to go over the entire canvas board.  Doing this really adds a lot of depth and dimension to the canvas and it picks up all of the little cracks in the texture paste.


To finish off the canvas I created some die cuts using Stick It and the die template from Tonic Studios.  I removed the backing on the Stick It and applied it to the canvas.  Then I added the gold foil on top of the adhesive and rubbed it to to transfer the foil.  I thought this would add a nice decorative element and gold foil it very hot right now.


Here is a close up of some of the flowers with the gold foil along the edge.


I added a few bits of the gold foil along the edges of the canvas.



I hope you enjoyed the tutorial.  Please be sure to visit the blogs listed below to see what the Designers and Style Contributors have created to share with you.
