Love & Friendship


Hey there Stencil Fan!

Natalie here sharing an easy Scrapbook layout featuring the Love of my Life, Trevor's and my daughter Jessica. 


This month we are celebrating Love & Friendship here at StencilGirl and there was a heap of photos I could have scrapped but I particularly love this one taken in Tasmania a little while ago.

This was the trip we took to see my beautiful Grandmother and it would turn out to be the last time we saw her before she passed away ... so this trip was definitely all about love! 



I started by taking the Fallen Leave 9x12' stencil designed by Jessica Sporn and used three colors in the Lindys Sprays to add color to 2 pieces of flat white cardstock.

 

I then took one of the stenciled pieces and cut out a heap of those beautiful leaves.


With the remaining stenciled sheet, I trimmed it down to just under 9x11' and adhered it to my page.  To create the stitched edge, I used some 13arts transparent stickers instead of dragging out my sewing machine (I love a good shortcut).

I foam mounted the image to the page and then each of the leaves was then slid in underneath the photo before I added some pretty Prima flowers.



Here is a quick YouTube tutorial just to show you how easy it really is!






Thanks for dropping by and I would love to hear what you think so leave me some love!

Mothers Day Lunch for Lindys Gang

Hey there 

Today I am sharing a quick scrapbook layout using Lindys Gang Magicals.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We all have that fave colour palette that we are drawn to when we create ... 
mine is a blue/teal palette ... definitely my 'go to' colours.

This layout is all about the photo of my Mum and I taken back in May.

Here are a few simple steps ...

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Starting with small amounts of Guten Tag Teal, Bavarian Blue and Luscious Lime, 
create a wash by adding a little water in a palette.

I then used Marshmallow cardstock as my base and 'puddled' the colour on starting with the lightest colour first, Luscious Lime, then adding the two other colours next. 
By having a 'loaded brush' full of colour, you can get lots of liquid onto your paper 
and gently allow them to flow together.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Once the paper was dry, I took a circle die and cut out a heap of circles using my Big Shot Machine. 
I used a clear drying glue to adhere them to my page, added some stamping, a few splatters and done!

Here is a super short You Tube on how to recreate this project - very easy and totally doable!



Here are a few close ups of the page!

Arty Celebration with StencilGirl


Hey there Stencil Fan!

Today I am sharing my Arty Celebration project for December with a fun and bright Scrapbook Page!


It's been way too long since I created a layout and this ridiculous photo of Sue Plumb and I taken a couple of months ago was perfect to kick start my creativity!
Sue is a fellow Aussie crafter and is a super talented girly who is seriously funny too!  


I started with my absolute fave stencil ... Scribble Scratch 9x12 by Carolyn Dube ...  gave it a spray on the reverse side with Lindys Gang Spray in Summer Lovin Sun and stamped it onto Marshmallow Cardstock.


I then used the Circles Layer Me stencil also by the uber talented Carolyn Dube and Hibiscus Pink Lindys Spray to add a pop of pink.


Once that was dry, I used the Illegible Stencil designed by Kae Pea, with some Distress Oxide in Black Soot to add the fabulous pattern over the top.


I have made a quick process video that you can view here.







So that's it from me ... do yourself a favor and pop over and check out My Super Awesome Arty Friend,Sue and leave her some love!

Cheers
Natalie May

Upcycling with stencils


Hey there Stencil Fan!

Today I am sharing a project I created as a Thank You gift for a friend of mine.


I took a trip to my local Thrift Shop and scouted around for a clutch or a small handbag that I could upcycle.

I stumbled across this 'knock off' Mimco leather pouch (mimco is an upmarket Australian Fashion Brand) and thought it was perfect!  Cost me a whole AU$3.00.




I started with a coat of clear and white gesso - just to give it a nice surface to build on.


Using a brayer, I added a light coat of grey and blue acrylic paint.

 

I used The Leafy Trees Arch mask by Valerie Sjodin and applied navy paint using a shaving brush on both sides.


I then used the Picasso's Words stencil designed by Carolyn Dube and layered it over the top a little.





I finished it off with some scribble words and done!


Here is a short process video for you.


I am looking forward to gifting this little pouch to my friend ...
