A Tutorial…..”Elisabeth-Style”

by admin

Tutorial-my style:

Hello again, hope you’re ready for a little how-to-Elisabeth-style;)

You are going to need a stencil, art medium and some chippies, and of course your regular scrap-stuff;)

*****

Here we go:

The first thing you have to decide, is what stencil you want to show off.

I chose the wood grain stencil:

ScrapFx has so many great stencils, this Step by Step will work with so many of them!

Step 1:

I pick my papers, and the stencil I want to use. The medium I’m going to apply to it, is a heavy art acrylic: it’s sandy.

I always use my spatula when I do this. Make sure to hold your stencil firmly, and work the medium to fill the spaces.

Step 2:

Layer your papers, even add a doilie, a paper-bag and a tag.

Then: Pick your chippie!

I chose the mini-clouds:

Step 3:

Treat your chippies!

I’ve used both Distress crackle paint (picket fence) and clear rock candy.

These two are winners, all the time!

The crackle paint will dry up faster than the clear rock candy, but still…. Tools;)

Step 4:

Put your chippies on your page, and layer some more with journal-stuff.

The page is coming together, details are left.

Step 5:

I want to fill my page some more, so cut some cloudy edges, and watercolor them.

Make two..

Step 6:

Put the cloudy edges on the top, and on the bottom, and stash it with washi and buttons. You can even frame with some sewing.

Add your choice of stash.

My case: Flowers, bling and the divine thing..eh I mean twine..

Here’s how it turned out:
