Creative Jump Start #9

Who doesn't like
stencils? Seriously, they can be used on any project and with many different techniques. Jump Starter Karen Ellis showed us three ways...

She used her
Crafters Workshop Karen's House stencil... one I haven't purchased yet... to show her three ways with a Gelli Plate, molding paste and paper piecing.   

I created my background
starting with a coat of gesso and topping it with Cerulean Blue, Titanium White and Grey acrylics, blending with my finger and spritzing with a bit of water. I layered on: 1. Cerulean Blue using the CW Chunky Chevron stencil and a foam brush; 2. Molding paste and CW Tile Texture; 3. Jet Black Archival ink and CW Art Is; 4. Meadow Green Glimmer Mist and CW Harlequin. Splattered on Butterscotch Color Wash.

I'm link up at:

Hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!
