Nathalie Kalbach Stencil Blog Hop :) :) :)


Hello Hellooooo :)

Guess who is getting to create again using Nat Kalbach's new stencils??!!!! :)  The awesome Nathalie Kalbach is at it again with her fabulous designing and sharing of the creative love :)

Nat has organised an awesome blog hop to show case her fabulous new designs with Stencil Girl Products!!




You realllllly must go check out all of her amazing new designs >>> HERE :) :) :)

So the fabulous stencil that I had the honour of creating with is the Standup Bass :)



What is Not to love about this stencil!!!

This is a layout that I created using Nat's cool Standup Base Stencil





I have used some embossing medium with the standup base stencil to reproduce a dimensional image on my layout background. To highlight the pattern I have used a Gelato and precious metal colour paint . I just love how the combination of these 2 mediums highlights the standup base image.


From this close up you can see that I have created a clear heat embossed standup base image on my background.


Using a gelato I have partially coloured the inside space of the base image.


I have then started to fill in the rest of the inside space of the base by using a wet paint brush on the gelato.


I have then spritzed this with water and dried off with a heat gun.


I have added a few extra splats of precious metal colour paint inside the base, spritzed it with water, and allowed some to dribble down the layout before drying it off with a heat gun.


So here are the amazing creatives who are sharing their art with you on this blog hop!
