Welcome to Stencil Mania month!
Today I have for you a mixed media canvas using a floral stencil as my focal point.
I have provided a supply list with links to everything I have used at the end of this post.
8 x 10 canvas board decoupaged with pretty tissue.
Top coated with matte medium.Beginnings of DIY texture paste using baby powder, glue, water and white paint (it smells great!)
I have provided the recipe below.
DIY texture paste divided up in three shades of white and turquoise using Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Pure Gulf...
Adding turquoise and white to background...
The previous matte medium layer allows removal of paint layers if you desire. You can use a baby wipe to remove paint here or there. I have done that in a few spots to bring out the black pattern of the tissue background.
Using Stencil and DIY texture paste to create ombre flowers...
Outlining flowers, leaves and stems in water soluable Stabilo pencil.
Taking wet brush to Stabilo pencil creating depth...
I have added a bit of white paint pen and gold Wink of Stella to the center of the flower for added interest.
Next I added an "Inspirational" phrase to finish it off.
I hope this project has inspired you to try a new stencil this month right along with the Altered Pages Design Team.
Please share your works with us on social media...

We would love to see what you create!
Have a very happy Friday!
