Layers of Color Sneak Peek: Stencils



Today I have another sneak peek for you of one of the Summer Releases by Layers of Color -- ART STENCILS!! These wonderful stencils are so fun to play with and can be used on cards, gift bags, candles,walls, wood, fabric... you name it! I think I have contemplated stenciling everything in my house!!! LOL!

The Design Team will be showing you peeks over these next couple of weeks leading up to the Release Party on June 14th! Also, we will have a Drawing to win all 7 new art stencils at the Layers of Color blog, which will begin on June 7th! Be sure to pop on over there and see more inspiration, and sign up for the drawing !!! Also, please visit the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration over the next 2 weeks!




For this project, I used the Vintage Medallion Art Stencil again and thanks to Nina Bracket's great inspiration, I embossed it in my Cuttlebug. I then lightly sponged Bordering Blue on it, careful to just hit the high spots. I wanted the bg part of this pattern to remain white kind of like a doily. I then took a heart shaped paper doily, gathered it up at the point and made it the "wrap" for my little bouquet of posies. I tied up the bottom part with May Arts sheer ribbon and added some ZVA Creative pearls. I used a couple of CB corner cut outs and put this on a mat of Bazzill, on a white linen base. I made this for the Shabby Tearoom challenge to use hearts. Now you may not recognize the doily as a heart any more... but it is! :) Just to be sure it qualified I also added a double heart charm that was a RAK from my sweet DT Sister, America. Thanks for looking and I hope you are catching some of the excitement the Layers of Color DT has for these Stencils! Stay tuned because there's much more coming! :)

Hi Grace~

Oh, this just whispered "LOVE" to me in such a gentle way. It is so elegant, and every piece seems to just flow to the next. The pearls and that soft bow are so lovely! The heart charms just peak out from that bow and join in with the beautiful spray of pearls. The paper is wonderful. And, I can almost smell the flowers! Beautiful!
