Hi – Essie here again to share a layout using a cut file as a stencil. This is a technique I taught at our GoGo Getaway Dayaway event in June this year. The original layout uses Shimmerz Paste-eez through a stencil cut from Mylar on the silhouette, but I didn’t have any Mylar so have used Bazill cardstock to cut my title from.
I mixed texture paste with Shimmerz Paste-eez in Baby Boy Blue and Hold The Mustard (I use a leftover bathroom tile to mix on) and applied with a palette knife onto Bazill Marshmallow cardstock through my stencil. I found the Paste-eez too wet to use with the cardstock stencil on it’s own as it seeped under the edges – but mixed with the firmer texture paste it was perfect and created beautiful pastel shades.
I splattered my background with ink spray and then layered up my photos with patterned paper and embellishments.
I love stencils and have many ready made ones but being able to create my own was great fun and you don’t need a silhouette – any cutting die or hand cut image will work too, why don’t you have a go and share with us on our Facebook page, I’d love to see.
