Hi there everyone! Today I'm sharing another fun & different way to use your stencils that I posted for The Crafter's Workshop earlier this month.
I basically used this 12×12 stencil as a stamp for creating a large background I then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I used a piece of 140lb. watercolor paper and saturated the entire stencil “Tiled Flower” using this jumbo embossing ink pad.
I put a piece of chipboard over the stencil and used a brayer to make sure I transferred as much of the embossing ink to the watercolor paper.
After adding white embossing powder to the entire piece of paper, I melted it with my heat gun and watched the pattern emerge! It is like watching magic for me!
Then I began the slow, but fun process of watercoloring the flowers and leaves in the pattern!
After it was all painted and dried, I added some gold stickles over the flower centers.
I laminated the painted product in order to make it more sturdy and finished looking. I adhered the laminated piece to a 9×11 piece of chipboard.
I decided it needed one more detail, adding some gold embossing paste onto a sticker in the bottom right corner.
Finally, I used a binding machine to bind my chipboard covers and the heavy white cardstock I cut to make a custom journal! This is the final finished book here! I am so excited by the way it turned out and love finding new ways to use my stencils.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
