This week, inspired by the fact that Stampendous has now purchased Dreamweaver stencils I decided to plan my stencil workshop around using products from both companies. I started with the celtic cross stencil and putting "Seasonings" embossing enamel over and heating but not fully so that some texture shows. I just love these crosses.
I have then used backgrounds prepared using the stampendous "Creative Palette" and old paints (emulsions &acrylics), and then pasted the stencil using various types of paste including sludge paste (a mixture of all your odds and ends of paste). over this I have either used mica powders ( Dreamweavers metallic f/x) or various elements of the frantage powders etc, The paste is a great holder for the frantage elements. The frantage powders are heated.
I love this idea but feel some are better than others with colours and backgrounds chosen. I will try and get more examples before the workshop.
