About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Using a Homemade Stencil and Texture Paste

Hi everyone!
So very glad that you stopped by to pay me a visit. Please take a moment to follow me! I'd truly, sincerely appreciate it!

I've been playing around with stencils a lot lately.  Some bought, others I've hand cut myself.  They are very tedious to cut though, and you've gotta have patience, otherwise you'll make some wrong cuts for sure.  I've gone through a lot of acetate just to make one stencil.  I've tried cutting flowers and brick so far.  And although I haven't tried to use the flower stencil, I've started a few projects using the brick stencil.  Here is one project that I've done:

using the homemade brick stencil

[Products used: homemade textured paste made from talcum powder, white acrylic paint,
 and ModPodge and homemade stencil made from acetate packaging, Copic markers
Adirondack ink,  patterned paper from the K&Co. Charlotte stack and black puffy paint]

I've noticed that the texture paste absorbs inks very nicely and the colors are easy to blend.

I'm working on using the texture paste on a cigar box next.  Wish me luck!

Again, I appreciate you blessing me with your visit. Be sure to leave a comment and your blog address too so that I can visit your place!

Bye for now!
