Thanks to The Crafters Workshop for partnering with us this month.
Jaime Echt and her team do amazing projects and we are proud to create with them.
Thanks to Cheryl Boglioli, The Crafters Workshop Design Team and Education Coordinator for leading the efforts to make October memorable.
I wanted to show you how simply you can get amazing results with acrylic paint and a Crafters Workshop stencil. This stencil is an original design by MARLENE MEIJER-VAN NIEKERK, Floating City.
I was fortunate to purchase a Class Package when I went to CHA last January. Did you know that Crafter Workshop has an amazing line of mediums and paints too? The color names make me hungry; grape jelly, orange slice, blueberry pie, raspberry sorbet, blue jellybean, lemon custard to name just a few.
I know one of my main Art issues is to be freer and overcome the OVERTHINKING of projects. I decided to let the art take me where it wanted to go. I haphazardly put paint onto my substrate which is nothing more than heavy white coated (over grey chip) cardstock. You can use daubers, sponges, brushes or palette knives to apply your paint, just be FREE!
I then used BLACK paint for boldness and stenciled over my colors. I did one 6x6 stencil print and then laid the stencil side by side, off the paper to get another image.
As you can see in the finished image, the colors worked out so well, WITHOUT OVERTHINKING!
Right now I am so pleased with the image, I just want to relish it as is. Next week may find a new project or a continuation of this one. Keeping you in suspense!
YES, we will have a giveaway this month. SHARE the BLOG to your Facebook page (tell us you did in the comments below) and go into the random drawing for a FREE STENCIL!
