Hello there! Today I´d like to share with you a mixed media layout background on which I used several stencils from the new The Crafter´s Workshop stencil collection. Here is a little photo step-by-step on how I crated the background:
I first applied some yellow and light pink spray ink onto the white cardstock and let that dry. Next I took the “Retrobursts“ stencil and placed it over the paper and applied some grey dye ink with a ink blending tool thru the stencil.
Then I took the “Texturized“ stencil and first added some blue Distress Paint thru it onto the background. Then I just turned the stencil around and pressed the paint that was on the stencil surface onto the paper. This created a nice negative image and no paint went to waste.
Then I went along and started layering patterned paper. I used a piece of old book paper that I had misted with spray inks first. See the cross pattern – that is a residue paste from a previous project. I usually wipe all residue paste onto a random piece of paper (mostly using a stencil), that way no paste goes to waste. The stencil I used here is also from the new The Crafter´s Workshop stencil collection (“Crossed“).
