CREATE - The Crafter's Workshop

Saturday, February 27, 2016

Hi there everyone!  Today I'm sharing another fun & different way to use your stencils that I posted for The Crafter's Workshop earlier this month.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I basically used this 12×12 stencil as a stamp for creating a large background I then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I used a piece of 140lb. watercolor paper and saturated the entire stencil “Tiled Flower”  using this jumbo embossing ink pad.

I put a piece of chipboard over the stencil and used a brayer to make sure I transferred as much of the embossing ink to the watercolor paper.

After adding white embossing powder to the entire piece of paper, I melted it with my heat gun and watched the pattern emerge!  It is like watching magic for me!

Then I began the slow, but fun process of watercoloring the flowers and leaves in the pattern!

After it was all painted and dried, I added some gold stickles over the flower centers.

I laminated the painted product in order to make it more sturdy and finished looking.  I adhered the laminated piece to a 9×11 piece of chipboard.

I decided it needed one more detail, adding some gold embossing paste onto a sticker in the bottom right corner.

Finally, I used a binding machine to bind my chipboard covers and the heavy white cardstock I cut to make a custom journal!  This is the final finished book here!  I am so excited by the way it turned out and love finding new ways to use my stencils.
