Clear Scraps 6" Stencil -- Tropical Exploring LO

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!
