Imagine...without limits


Time for another Stencil Sunday project!

Would love to have you join us for the challenge this month.  As always, it's an anything goes challenge that must be a mixed media piece...tags, art journal pages, home decor, etc....anything but a card.  The winner will receive a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate or 2 ARTplorations stencils. And the top picks receive an ARTplorations stencil of their choice.


This was some mixed media paper that I used to clean off my stencil from another project...it left some wonderful texture on the paper!  It was covered with a layer of gesso and then I did some background stamping.  Next comes some light modelling paste through my Foiled ARTplorations stencil.  Why light modelling paste?  I really like it as it dries quite quickly compared to some of the other pastes.  Next I added some color using the direct-to-paper method with some Distress Inks and then wiped away the excess with a baby wipe.

Then comes a layer of crackle paste through my Bloom Silhouettes ARTplorations stencil.  I used what I'd call a medium layer to ensure there was some cracking. Next, I dyed some seam binding with the same Distress Inks and crinkled it.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment in archival ink and cut it out.  

Here's what I used:
Paper:  mixed media
Inks:  Distress Inks and Archival Inks
Stamps:  STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge and Imagine
All the other stuff:  ARTplorations Old Rose Prints, Foiled and Bloom Silhouettes stencils, light modelling paste, spatula, Antique Silver Crackle Art Extravagance Texture Paste, seam binding, Distress Markers, Tim's Tiny Attacher, Tim Holtz Tags & Bookplates die
