Bright Spark and Charms of Italy …… by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone it’s Cindy Porter here, thanks for joining me today…
First up I’d like to share with you all a canvas I created “Bright Spark


I love this quote from Walt Disney…. “if you can dream it, you can do it”…. a bit of a mantra for me this year…


I used the newly released Travel Stencil…. as I wanted to show that it’s not just for travel… it has so many uses, for my canvas I used the words, play and discover with modelling paste and coloured them with a Stampers big brush pen…
I coloured the “Bright Spark” wordlet with Wink of Stella and Wink of Luna pens… I have only recently started playing with these, but love how they cover the chipboard and give great shine and sheen…



I used the layering stencil technique with the Petal Pattern Stencil and Circle Stencil to create some texture on the background of the canvas… If you don’t know this technique here’s a link to a tutorial I did on it…..
Next I coloured the whole canvas with Gelatos… and gave it a coat of gel medium, this helps seal the gelatos from any moisture or spills …


I used the ‘love’ light bulb from the Light Bulbs Pack, along with the Cogs Light Bulb …. and the Industrial Globes… I coloured these up in the same way as the title…

Next up I’d like to share with you all a layout I created “Charms of Italy”


This photo is at Juliet’s house in Verona…. and I am mailing my letter to Juliet… such a fun memory captured…

I painted the new “Charms of Italy” title with a very thin coat of the Prima platinum crackle texture paste… I applied it very thin so that I had the colour and sheen but it wouldn’t crackle…

I used the new Travel Stencil with some distress ink to create a page border and as accents on the page… I created some texture using the platinum crackle texture paste through the Petal Pattern Stencil… doesn’t the paste look fabulous through the stencil… and because Scrap FX stencils have that extra thickness there is enough crackle paste to work and crack wonderfully…

a couple more close ups of the stencilled border…. subtle but I think effective…
