And here are my 2 projects using Sanna Lippert Designs Stencils:
First is the table top Christmas tree pot. I found a cute little Christmas tree at a craft store a while ago and it needed a pot 🙂 First, I painted the small clay pot with white acrylic paint. I painted twice, between 1 hour drying time.
After making sure the second layer dried well, I added the Senecio 1 Stencil on the pot and used mini puncher to added the green leaf acrylic paint. I painted the whole surface. You need to be very careful when moving the stencil to the next row, especially when the paint still wet. It would be better to paint the next row when the first one is dry or at least half-dry so there will be no smudge. To remove the wet paint smudge, I simply used wet wipe.
I also added some glitter hologram paint on the pot for extra bling to it. Once paint dry, which craft acrylic paint will dry in 1 hour, I added foam inside the pot for the tree to stand. I secured it with hot glue gun.
And then I wrapped the mini LED light around it and now it is sitting on my desk 🙂
My second project is an art journal using the Evolution Stencil. First, I created the background with Color Burst powder, sprayed some water and dabbed of some. After that I sprayed some white spray paint and green spray paint.
I added some homemade texture paste with the Evolution Stencil on the page and dried it with craft heater. And then I added some Gelatos on it with my finger. I used the Gelatos Original Set on my journal.
Using Crisscrossed ARTplorations Stencil, I added some black paint on the corners using make up sponge. And dried it with craft heater. And then I added some gold glitter hologram acrylic paint with the Star Aligned ARTploratios Stencil
I added some old book paper strips in the middle of the page using mod podge, and added some Gelatos on them with my finger.
Once they dry, I added some medical fabric gauge and the green burlap on it with strong liquid glue.
I stamped the flower from Smile – Dee’s Arty Impressions stamp set on a watercolored paper scrap with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad, fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors, and added it on the page with strong liquid glue. For the sentiment, it is from Bold Sentiment – Beautiful stamp set, cut them into paper strips, and added them with same glue.
I finished the page with added some white gesso around the page with my finger and added the Vintage Photo Distress Ink on it once the gesso was dry.
