Stencil challenge at CVC

The stencil challenge at Country View Crafts is still running and you have till the 31st to get as entry in and to join in the amazing blog hop. I have made one of my 5 x 7 media boards as my second DT sample using two different stencils on the background.


It all began with a dot stencil and texture paste ....


... some decoart paints spritzed and dried ....


... another stencil with acrylic paint .....


..... and a focal image and rusted frame.


The flowers were left over from my reverse canvas workshop and went will on here. You can also see a couple of other elements tucked in - a fleur de lys and a Paris clock.


Thanks for stopping by, I will be back in half an hour with some news I announced on Face Book last week and a sneak peek of a new technique I have called weathered shabby cackle wood that I will be teaching at my CVC workshop in July.


Have a great week.

hugs Brenda xxxx
