Where to begin........oh did I have fun with Ken's products!!!! I started thinking I would sit down for a minute to play and then a few hours later this is what my desk that was empty when I started looked like!
Needless to say...I have a "few" ideas on how to use Color Burst with stencils :) Let's start with this one.....why I decided to do this I have NO idea...but I am SO SO SO glad I did!!!!! A touch of Color Burst into Golden Molding Paste--OH MY!
As you can see in the photo above and below...I had to try out my new Molding Paste with a stencil. I used my Doodle It Tornado Flowers to test it.
To say that I had my usual "shiny object syndrome" while playing with these products was an understatement. Yes, fun but FOCUS Maria--you need to do a project :)
After I had the Molding paste, I used my Doodle It Bigger stencil to make some small pieces to play with.
I don't know what possessed me to dunk the entire piece in water....but it worked so I won't question it. You can also see that I was using the top of my Molding Paste as a palette....very in the "moment".
After it was wet I used a bit of the Color Burst mixed with water to color my piece--switching colors from time to time. I LOVE how it oozed into the Molding Paste.
Here is a look at how the transformation went with each piece:
Okay....now lets talk about that Click It stamp pad!!!!! Mr. Oliver where oh where were you went I was an avid scrapbooking INKING QUEEN!!!!???? GOODNESS, you need to get yourselves one (ALL) of these!!!! In LOVE!!!
After I my mini pieces were done, I ran the ink pad over each one....why, I have no idea...but I LOVED what it did to them!!! Seriously, this ink pad is AWESOME!!!!! I also showed above a little sample I did to just try them with a hand carved stamp. Here is a close up after one was inked.
So....what to do with mini masterpieces :) Make pieces of art of course!
I mounted each piece on a piece of foam core and cut around it with an X-acto Knife. Then I used two Bass Wood Canvases from Walnut Hallow as my base. I painted them black and did the edging with gold. Perfect place to mount my works of art. I added some gold lines as an accent and they were done. Easy!
As you can see...I had "a little" fun with Ken's products and stencils!! As a matter of fact, I will be back in the hop on Friday with another project! See you then....but before you go, make sure to leave a comment (hopefully about my projects) to be entered to win the StencilGirl GIVEAWAY!
