bloom - The Crafter's Workshop - February 2018

Monday, March 5, 2018

Hi there!  Today I am going to share a traditional scrapbook layout using 4 of the new stencils and 2 of the new metallic modeling pastes from The Crafter's Workshop.
Below are the stencils and pastes I used in my layout.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started out by misting a couple different colors of green onto white cardstock using two of the 6×6 leaf/botanical stencils.

Having decided to use a recent photo of new blooming daffodils, I chose this 12×12 stencil for the background.  I have wanted to get some of these large stencil brushes for a while and finally bought some for Christmas for myself!  I selected Distress Inks in gradating tones from yellow to orange to pink.
Starting from the top left corner working to the bottom right, I stenciled this Floral pattern onto another piece of white cardstock.
While the ink dried on my background, I fussy cut out the leaves from the 6×6 stencils I misted.
I decided that my photo needed a dark background to provide some contrast.
Since this photo makes me think of the time of year, I thought this number stencil was appropriate.  I thought a black background would provide that contrast along with the new Antique Gold Modeling Paste.
I also stenciled the piece of this 6×6 stencil in the new Champagne Gold Modeling Paste over the “bloom” portion of this stencil for my title.
I created a photo cluster using the black cardstock stenciled with gold as the base and layered the fussy cut leaves underneath my photo.
I matted the entire piece with a piece of 12×12 black & white patterned cardstock.
I added a couple other embellishments, but tried to keep it simple and keep the focus on the background stencil pattern and colors.
Thanks for stopping by the Blog today!  I hope this project gives you a little promise of Spring!
