Tattered Angels and Stencils!

Stencils and masks work fabulously with Tattered Angels paint products.  Using a stencil is a great way to show varied color and create depth.  You can use traditional stencils or you can use items such as found objects, lace, chipboard letters and even die templates.

Here are three projects I created to show you a few of my favorite techniques using stencils!

This started as a plain kraft colored 12×12″ cardstock.  I dredged the edges in Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist, I laid my crown stencil down in the middle of the page, and misted the center area with Cornflower Daze Chalkboard Mist and Bahama Blue Glimmer Mist.

I misted the white butterfly crochet ribbon with L.E.D. Red Glimmer Mist.  I just love that pop of color.

I die cut Spellbiners Grand Peony Creations out of white cardstock.  Then I used the die template as a stencil and misted Cornflower Daze Chalkboard Mist with Bahama Blue Glimmer Mist.  I let the mist sit for just about 5 seconds, then used a paper towel and brayer to lift the excess mist off.  This helps with minimal seepage.

My next project started as a large manilla shipping tag.  I stamped  3 trees using a tree stencil, Midnight Rendezvous Glimmer Glaze, Pewter Glimmer Glaze, and Island Spring Glimmer Glaze.  I made sure to alter the height of each tree.

I misted with Twinkle Yellow Glimmer Mist, Bubble Light Green Glimmer Mist, and Icicle Blue Glimmer Mist.  I used several layers of glimmer mist colors to create depth.  The glimmer glaze acts as a resist and the glimmer mist wipes right off….brilliant feature!!

I misted the word JOY using Pink Paislee mistables chipboard font with Icicle Blue Glimmer Mist.  I stamped a snowflake on the tag several times, using Waltzing Mouse Christmas stamps.

Then applied Chandelier Glimmer Glam along the bottom and edges.  I added some bits of bling by Want2Scrap.  Then I noticed a beautiful piece of paper towel I had been using to soak up the excess glimmer mist.  So….I stamped and cut and folded it to look like crepe trim on the bottom of my tag.  I love how it turned out!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My third project is a mini canvas that measures about 5 x 5″.  I painted on a thick layer of gesso, leaving brush strokes.  I misted with Patina glimmer mist, and painted the corners with Island Spring Glimmer Glaze.  I allowed those to dry.  Then I put my stencils in place and misted with Icicle Blue and Cornflower Daze Chalkboard Mist.  I love the wintry feel it created.

I cut/embossed white cardstock with Spellbinders Create a Flake Three, used the die template as a stencil and inked with chalk.  Wrapped some tulle around the bottom of the canvas and adhered my die cut snowflake.

I hope these projects will give you some ideas and inspiration to give Tattered Angels paint products and stencils a try!
