Happy Tuesdee! It's Lock & Key Lite Shipping Day!
That makes about 172 monthly stencils? Really? Wow.
Kay reviewed some lovely misting techniques in the latest edition of the Scrap Rap, so I decided to have some playtime with Gelatos by Faber-Castell.
Protect your work surface and thoroughly mist the stencil with water.
Pick a color scheme of Gelatos or watercolor crayons and color the stencil. (No need to color the openings of the stencil.) If nothing is happening as you color, add water.
Press paper panels onto the colored stencil, and burnish to make good contact on the entire surface.
Re-mist the stencil between each impression. End with a full misting of water, and press a 12x12 sheet of paper onto the stencil. Use a brayer to burnish the paper onto the stencil.
And heck, with all of the baby wiping going on around here, I figured I'd use them, too. Carefully lift the stencil from the craft sheet, and clean the craft sheet (not the stencil). Place a 12x12 White Plain onto the craft sheet, and top with the stencil. Use a baby wipe to clean the stencil, moving any remaining color onto the paper. It creates a lovely pastel impression, don't you think?
Look at all of the art panels I created with just one "coloring effort"! Go, Gelatos!
Off to make some fun cards and layouts after the paper dries. Stay tuned for my finished artwork.
Oh, and a reminder--if you are a member of Club Scrap Lite, this stencil is included right in your Lock & Key shipment leaving the warehouse today! Not a member? We can fix that!
