Framing & Outlining - A Scrapbook Layout

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Hello friends!  Today, I wanted to share a scrapbook layout I created using several of the newest stencils and metallic pastes from The Crafter's Workshop.


Below are the stencils and pastes I used in my project!


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


I used both sizes of two of the stencils to add dimension and a variation of scale.  Below are the products I used!


I started by using a stencil brush and Distress Oxide Ink to add a pattern to my background cardstock.


This Wilted Violet Distress Ink is a vibrant color, but when using these stencil brushes becomes much more subtle.


Using the Wild Roses template in both sizes, I outlined the petals using a waterproof Copic liner onto watercolor paper.


I painted violets, pinks and corals onto the rose outlines as well as some leaves.



While the watercolors dried, I used this beautiful White Pearl Modeling Paste to create an inverted frame within my previously stenciled area.  Instead of a white frame and pattern inside the center, I used the pattern as the frame, using the Modeling Paste to create a 'white' space in the center.


It has such a lovely iridescent finish while being very subtle.


While the paste dried, I went back to my watercolor flowers and fussy cut around them, making my own die cut flowers.



Laying out my photo and the flowers, I planned out the placement of the title.



I decided to layer the two different sized stencils and different gold pastes adding some dimension to my title.


 Below are the close up pics!





Thanks so much for stopping by the Blog today!  I hope this inspires you to use a stencil to outline your own pieces to color, or create a reverse frame for your background!
