Wheelie nice Twees and Leaves

Happy Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by. 

A couple of ladies called this week, requesting a 
how-to-use-the-new-Wheelie-stencils blog,
so here’s one using the 

Branch and Leaves Wheelie stencil

It’s pretty clever.
Wheelie wheelie clever, in fact!
Take a closer look; 6 different leaves, 3 different sizes.
And 4 different branches/twiggies to dress.
A Gelli Plate background piece
Make-up sponges.


It really doesn’t get any easier than this!
Simply dial in the branch or the part of the branch 
you want to use, hold it in place, 
and sponge through the stencil.


Move the stencil to the next branch or twig you fancy 
(there are 3 different sizes)
Build your scene...


Now dial in the leaves. 
There are different leaves and different sizes, so lots of scope.
Add the leaves along the branches, using Library green.


The upper wheel acts as a shield, so you don’t add ink through other parts of the stencil.
This is the same for any of our Wheelies, whether they by images or ABC’s or numbers.
Wheelie wheelie clever!


You can set the scene to fit the layout.


 Just add a fitting sentiment.
All done!


As for cleaning? The little swivel rivet in the centre pops off, so you can clean the stencil as you would any other stencil, with warm soapy water or thinners ( for permanent inks and paints). 
Just watch where it pings !!! (Sam!) 

much love,

  11. Hi Barb,
    This is one of the Wheelie stencils that I ordered so I'm so pleased that you have done a step by step today. I will be having a play this afternoon. I really like how you have built the scene and added the twigs/branches under the words - how versatile is that! Thanks again for all the inspiration you give us. Love Alison xxx

    1. Get them all....I've got the men and now want the alphabet (can't decide which font), and I think this tree is a "must have" too....am thinking ahead to Christmas - I think it lends itself to hanging Christmas baubles from them with silver & gold leaves & snow.......
      Anything on the horizon Barbara for a lady wheelie?.....Hope so!
      Take care, Carole :-) x

  21. That is just so clever, Barb, and so effective. Also very good for using up random Gelli prints - saves wasting paper/card. Are you going to supply those rivets for those of us who emulate Sam? xx Maggie

  25. Hi Barbara, wow another stencil to add to my ever growing list of must haves!! lol. It was lovely meeting you and Dave yesterday at Oysterstamps, thank you for the advice you gave me regarding getting the right colours to make the Harbour scene.

I will see you in June as ordered my ticket for your Open Day, now just got to book the day off work, fingers crossed they allow it or will have to have a sickie tutt tutt lol. Take care xx

  28. This is simplistic but very effective - I'm going to see what backgrounds I've made and go through all my stencils and stamps today - I need to make a card for a 12 year old and I'm thinking the wheelie jumping boy and maybe one of the shaped aperture stencils for him to jump through.......mmmmmm - we'll see......
    Hope everyone's enjoying their Sunday, Carole x

  33. Ooo haven't seen this before....so clever Barbara. Can we have a birdie one next?

  34. A timely warning about pinging the rivet as I've just spent the last 10 minutes carefully stroking the floor looking for the little **+$^@!! Found It! Love the stencils though x

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really clever - can't afford to get any yet, but they look like they would be a useful addition to my crafty stash. Well, the garden (or should I say wilderness) beckons, so best get out there with my fork and loppers, and then I can have some time in my craft room this afternoon. Thanks for the inspiration! Susan x

  36. This was the stencil I got at Ally Pally and I love it. I have used it to make a twiggy edge to a card and it looked really effective. I really like that it has different shape and sizes of leaves so it can be used in lots of different ways and at different times of the year - already got my eye on the branch with the holly leaf and the NDC robin for that 'C' word ;) I must admit I didn't even know the rivet came off! I will keep it in mind when I use it again. XX
