I had skipped Day 2, because I did not own any stencils…still waiting for them to come in. Found a You Tube - Make your own stencils from Rubbish! So, I made my own! Then I tried my old brass stencils and they also worked!
Mixed-Media Layering: Using homemade Stencils and brass. Can’t wait for my TH Stencils to come in!
Embossing with Stencils: I would have never even thought of embossing with my stencils!
Embossing through Stencils: My homemade Stencils did not work well for this technique.
Stencil Sketching: What a goof I did. First, I messed up trying to sketch in with a gold pin, it just ran, so I scribbled over it, then stamped and my image would not stamp over the gold ink. Well..looks like I need some distress markers. I tried sketching in with glitter pins and loved that look, the photo did not pick up the sparkle. Can’t wait to do this again.
Ink Monoprint: This was a brass plate.
Paint Monoprint: As you can see, my homemade stencils did not do so well on this one. It was to flimsy.
