Welcome to day three of the Blog Hop with Ken Oliver Crafts and Stencil Girl Products. Style Contributors and Designers from both teams have come together to create some fabulous projects using products from both companies. We hope to inspire you!
My first project is a 6×6 canvas that uses Color Burst in a variety of ways.
The canvas was painted with white interior latex paint and while the paint was still wet, puffs of Color Burst were added. Using a brush, the Color Burst was mixed in with the wet paint, spreading color across the canvas.
When the paint was dry, a layer of surgical gauze was added across the top using Glue ’n Seal to adhere the gauze. Much to my surprise, the more Glue ’n Seal used, the more intense the Color Burst became. A bit of Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls were added to the gauze as it was worked onto the canvas.
Violet Color Burst was added to white embossing paste, which was then used with the Vintage Script Stencil to add the colored embossing paste to the canvas.
The flowers are some from Petaloo that I’ve had in my stash for some time. There were originally a sienna color, but I thought I would try dying them with some Color Burst mist (made by adding puffs of Color Burst with water).
Here’s a closer view of the flowers once they were dry. The variations of color is amazing!
This must have been a “Use Your Stash” project, because while digging for the flowers I found an old chipboard birdcage and bird that I decided to throw on. The birdcage was painted gray with patina paints and Inka Gold added for some dimension. The chipboard bird was colored with Color Burst mist and Violet embossing paste was added using Bali Doily Stencil. For a touch of personal whimsy, some gold ribbon was frayed and added to the head of bird (kinda like my own gray short spiky hair). A bit of Inka Gold was added to the dried embossing paste on the bird.
The sentiment, Be You, was created by using Ken Oliver Crafts Pegz Uppercase Alphabet. The ribbon tied to the bird cage is seam binding dyed with Violet Color Burst. As you can see, Color Burst is extremely versatile and can be used with so many different mediums!
While I had the Color Burst going, I decided to play with a few more cards.
The above card was made using watercolor paper and the Silhouette of a Wildflower Stencil. The stencil was placed on the paper, misted with water and then misted with various Color Burst mists. The image was trimmed and then mounted on a watercolor paper card base with 3D Foam Squares.
This card was made by using a previously created background and a stencil from my stash, Past Present Future Stencil, by my friend Seth Apter. The stencil was placed on the background and then misted with water to pick out some color in the background. The image was trimmed and added to a card base from watercolor paper using 3D Foam Squares.
This set of cards were made by using Cornish Petals Stencil Large and watercolor paper. The stencil was placed on the paper, misted with water and then misted again with various Color Burst Mists. Once dry, the image was trimmed into 4 different card fronts that were attached to card bases.
