It's Allara back on the blog today and I'm revisiting one of my favourite stencils using it as a scrapbook background with my beloved Dylusions Paints that I love to use on pretty much everything.
The three paint colours I have used on the background are Dylusions- Funky Fuschia, Laidback Lilac and Pure Sunshine. An I have thus randomly spread these around start with the lilac over my background with metal spatula and not really waiting for them to dry in between.
Next I stamped over the dylusion paint background with a Carabelle Stamp 'Impression Aux Pochoirs' just to break up the colour a little. Then I was very brave and layed my Stencil Girl stencil over the top and used black gesso to sponge over the top. I also cut the page to 11and half and stuck on a black cardstock back ground to create a border.
Next I used 49&Market Gabi's Texture Stamp and Carabelle Flower circles background with Black Archival ink to add some stamped details. I also detailed the writing with a white Posca Pen and added a few small details of my own. I picked out a photo of my lovely daughter when she was young and started placing around various Vicki Boutin Diecuts and some chipboard/ wood veneers. If you are like me I have a massive collection of these and found it fun to use a few of them for this project.
I painted the chipboard and wood veneer in the Dylusions paints I used for the background. I used my finger to apply it as I wanted it to blend with half of each colour. The wand was painted in a DecoArt Venetian gold paint and then I added some Dylusions White Linen to high light as well as a little funky fuschia.
Archival Monarch Orange some more texture stamps around the grid patterns.
As I laid it all down I felt it needed a little more softening, so I took some cheesecloth in my stash and soaked it in the Dylusions Spray - Pure Sunshine to match and bring the the page together.
I'm really happy with how it turned out! I love these colours together.
I hope you've enjoyed my process and I've provided you with some inspiration. This would be a great technique to also try in your journal as well.
