Thanks for stopping by.
Wednesday’s blog is something new,
so I thought I would tackle a relatively new stencil:
This stencil lends itself beautifully to scrapbooking.
How easy to just cut out the photo areas and slot a real pic in!
But I am going down the arty route, so do join me...
Lay the stencil on a piece of
Secure it in place with low-tack masking tape.
Go round the outline with a black micron pen.
Mask off the whole stencil bar the photo apertures.
Tear a hill out of copy paper and add a little Butterscotch.
Are you keeping up? Cool.
Move the masking tape and stamp along.
And once more in the third opening.
Cut the Film strip with a knife and craftknife.
Colour in the film with a black Promarker,
or Sharpie Pen or Spectrum Noir.
Starting to look like a real film strip.
Spray mount the strip onto another piece of A5 Theuva card.
Time to add a couple of words.
I want the word Friends,
so I’m going to have work a bit of magic.
I will use the Word chain Set No. 8 - they are superb.
Not hard. Just ink up the friends and lose the hip!
I love it when it works!
I wish I’d added a couple of trees now....
Never fear! Treesa’s here!
Time to add some shadow.
Drag a Promarker, a blue or grey one,
along the bottom Film strip length and in between the little boxes, like here:
Add shadow to the words, too. Done and dusted.
Mount on black card.
Hope you like it.
Leave a positive, uplifting comment today if you can.
It sure would be appreciated.
Been one of those days, when I wish I’d stayed in bed.
