Wooden-you-know-it, you have arrived at the next stop on the hop! I stenciled 3 projects.
Stencils used: Terri Stegmiller’s large stencil from StencilClub November 2016. I stenciled, cut, and turned around separate portions of the flowers and leaves to create butterflies.
The “Yes” is from Cathy Nichols’ small stencil from StencilClub September 2016.
Paper butterflies cut from my wedding invitation.
Paper background – from my immense stockpile
Yellow and blue paint
Ink for distressing
Green, black and orange permanent markers to outline the word, flowers and leaves
Finished with Modge Podge (Who else has fond memories of Modge Podge Lodge?)
My Kindle Stand
The challenge was to stencil this Walnut Hollow Natural Bark Edge Tablet Stand in a way that was interesting but not too distracting — just my peculiarity! Walnut Hollow also sells a great ebook table/iPad stand with a back that comes up but I would have had to paint it a solid color, and where’d be the fun in that?!)
The black and blue chalk paint in my arsenal seemed like a good foundation. I like how it appears rather distressed, like a used book.
Tip: I found the letters in the Chancery stencil easier to use cut out as 2 to 4 letters. I now store them in an envelope.
I really liked the rough side of Walnut Hollow’s Rustic Feather because it had the calamus and rachis (center portion- yes, I looked that up). I wrote on this part with marker. I do admit it was a challenge as the feather was larger in reality than I had pictured in my mind.
Process: I painted the feather with a double coat of gesso, spritzed with some color sprays and then had fun layering with the small stencil from the Here There & Everywhere StencilClub set and the roses (stenciled on deli paper) from the Heraldry StencilClub set, and A Rose by Any Other Name. It is covered with Modge Podge.
