Hello all! Laura here with you today! And since I'm
dreaming of the beach, I thought I'd share a LO with a
fun beach and tropical exploration vibe!
This bright fun LO was created using one of the fun NEW
stencils from Clear Scraps!! They have a lot of new in the
store, did you know you can find it all under the special
"What's New" section! One place to find all the new goodies,
I love that! You can find that section of the store HERE.
So using the 6" Turtle Stencil, I angled it along the top
and bottom of the left side of the page. I used some
washi tape to hold the stencil in place to make it a little
easier to apply the ink. I used a sponge applicator and
blended a darker color along the edges, then went in
with a lighter color to fill in the center. I did overlap the
color just a bit to give it a more blended look. You can see,
the difference in shades on the finished turtles. You
can actually use a spray ink, or paint too. Before you
go right to application on your cardstock page, it's
always a good idea to try your blending/application
ideas on a piece of scrap paper first to make sure you
like the look before you put it on your cardstock page.
This also gives you a chance to play with different color
combos, and mediums to see what you like best for the
project your working on. It's always fun to get creative
and play with stencils! To be able to get creative to make
backgrounds to match your project by color and subject.
If you've been afraid to give stencils a try, go for it! You'll
have a great time making custom backgrounds for LO's,
home decor, and more!
Thanks for stopping by today!
