Saturday’s blog - better late than never!
To be honest, I have been feeling unwell since yesterday.
Every time I get up I just want to lie down again!
Which is pretty rubbish at the best of times,
but especially with the retreats starting Monday!
So I am just going to quickly show you a new stencil which I dragged some shaving foam through.
I got several messages last week, asking how to use shaving foam with stencils, so this time I have taken step by step pics from the start.
Sorry it’s taking so long. had to go lie down again...
First of all, let me introduce you to our beautiful new
elegant stencil She is delightful!
Comes complete with hat and shoes...
Both parts, the positive
and the negative.
So attach the stencil to a piece of white card.
I used Theuva Card.
Place some masking tape over the shoes and handbag aperture too.
Squirt some shaving foam in a tray.
Flatten it out.
Drip some reinkers on it.
Drag a fork through it. You can see I’m at home here.
No crafting tools to hand.
A cocktail stick helps make patterns too.
Now scoop some up and deposit it at her base, on copy paper.
Here’s when I realised I hadn’t masked off the shoes and handbag.
Drag it through the stencil.
Looks messy, but isn’t bad.
Lay some kitchen towel on top and get rid of the excess.
Remove the stencil and let it dry. 5 mins.
Now for the background.
Mix up the shaving foam in the tub again,
lay the A5 card with the lovely lady on copy paper,
deposit a load of the coloured shaving foam at the top on the copy paper and pull it through with a ruler, or a spatula!
I added a little extra at the base, too.
It’s dry pretty much instantly.
Mount on black.
Very Pan’s People!
You can get the stencil here.
Sorry. Got to go lie down again.
This is when you realise how lucky you are that you are never ill.
It must be pretty awful to always feel like this.
And so many poor people do.
Tomorrow, I will try a different trick with this stencil -
but the other part, the inny.
