Mixed Media Pillow~

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.
