LOC Stencils and techniques
Hello everyone! I have a project to share with you today that was really fun! I used two of the different Layers of Color Art Stencils, and the Touch of Elegance Art Stamp Set.I used a $1.00 wood frame from Micheal's and painted it with a cream colored acrylic paint. I glazed it with Plaid Antiquing Medium. This went down into the grain and gave the wood a lot of depth, though the photo doesn't show that. I then used the Victorian Corner Art Stencil from Layers of Color, and holding it in my corners, I sponged with Walnut Stain (Tuskineko).
For the inside of the frame I first made the designer paper for the background. I used basic black card stock and a glue pad and the Belle Brocade Stencil. I rubbed glue from the glue pad over the stencil that was laid on top of the black paper, then I poured tan flocking over it and tapped off the excess. The result is a flocked and gorgeous background. The photo does not do it justice. I had this idea I wanted to add a piece of old jewelry to the center but never did come up with just that right thing, so I made this little medallion using the LOC Touch of Elegance Art Stamp set, stanped on tan paper and heat embossed with black EP. I popped this up on dimensionals over a die cut from a Spellbinder's Contemporary Heart Die cut set. I added a black pearl in the center.
Thanks so much for looking! I love reading your comments!
