Mixed Media Pillow~
May 16, 2016
Hi, Connie here with a Mixed Media project using the unique and very cool stencils by Clear Scraps. I used a total of nine stencils on this project. All the way from 12" to 6" stencils. I started with a texture paste and my favorite stencil by Clear Scraps. Layer the stencils on the canvas pillow, overlapping the stencils is a good thing.
Use acrylic paint, spray mists, Distress stains are all good to apply color the project. When my project is complete I spray it with an acrylic sealer. Sets the colors so no bleeding will occur if the project gets wet or damp. I line up my colors of paint, along with the stencils I want to use. Once I have used the stencils I drop them-into the kitchen sink, full of warm soapy water, for quick cleaning. Then I lay them on a towel and let them dry. Pretty "no fuss".
Example of permanent marker for outlining images.
Added some white highlights of color, to the letters, by using a small paint brush.
Clear Scraps products used:
12" Stencils: Fruit of the Spirit and Geo Pattern
6" stencils: Lamps, Doily, Quaterfoil, Quilt, Chevron, Heart Arrow and Spiral Dots.
acrylic paints, Distress Stains, Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle, permanent markers.
Thanks for stopping by~
