April Showers brings Stencil 1 !!!!

What a great month the Altered Pages Design Team had working with KUNZE German Scrap.  
We hope you enjoy all we had to share!
An new month a new partner. 
the Altered Pages Design Team is
 really excited to work with
be sure to stop by every day for inspiration!
Stencil 1 has several sizes of stencils...
I love keys and couldn't pass up working with the
Key Repeat Wallpaper Stencil.
The large Repeat Wallpaper Stencils are the perfect size to create your own pattern papers!
Use an ivory paper, placed the stencil over and apply VersaMark directly from the ink pad. 

Randomly place the stencil and ink to add additional keys to the background.

Color the paper with Pan Pastels.  The VersaMark picks up the colors vibrantly, the tooth of the paper also picks up the colors of the pan pastels.  Apply a fixative, I use aerosol hairspray!

Second, on Craft Cardstock use Gesso with a pallet knife an apply over the stencil. Set aside to dry., when dry it is ready to use.
Be sure to wash the stencil immediately... don't let the Gesso dry on it.
 Finally, a card! Using the stencil with VersaMark, cover with clear embossing powder and heat.  Layer papers and ribbon, apply with double sided tape, fussy cut Altered Pages Victorian Circus collage image. Cover the image with VersaMark and heat emboss with embossing powder, it appears to be enameled. Stamp sentiment with black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Embellish with Dew Drops!

Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the Altered pages Design Team using Stencil 1 stencils!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
