Well back in the swing of things again.
Today's post is another using some of the Sheena Douglass Remember When Stencils but this time I used Imagination Crafts Starlights paints and Pebeo Sand Paste.
The stencil I used today is very 1950s I think. My twist on this was that I used an MDF plaque I had in my stash which I bought from the lovely Dreamees team whilst they were on Create and Craft before I abdicated to HOCHANDA. The Dreamees are lovely people. (Hi Carole, I know you have started following my blog, thank you so much, it means a lot.) Their Facebook page is brilliant and their stamps are great and their pearls are amazing value. I will do a Dreamees post for you very soon, promise.
Anyway back to Remember When #2.
I painted the plaque with some white gesso and then when dry I dropped some blobs of Pebeo Studio Acrylics Dyna Paint in Pink, Green and Silver and then smeared it with a sponge. I saw Sheena do this with some acrylic paint onto a canvas and her effect was much better than mine, but Heyho, you don't know if you don't try. Imagination Crafts (loads of videos on you tube for this product) it is amazing stuff, and love it even more now I have used it for stencilling. I used the Cyclamen shade for this project but my favourite colour of choice is platinum its luscious. The wording at the bottom didn't come out very well but that was purely down to my eagerness and inexperience I am sure. I then let everything dry, I went over the wording at the bottom with the Pebeo Cement paste and then when that was dry I edged the whole plaque with gilding wax, and also coloured the tea logo at the bottom with gilding wax but it didn't take too well, going to have a think about what I can do to finish it off properly, I then polished it up and finally covered the whole thing with some Rose Blush colour cloud blending ink.When this was dry, about 10 mins, I then stenciled the image from the stencil using Starlights paints from
