Hello, Ann here today from the AnnMakes blog over at http://annmakes.blogspot.com, and for the Design Team here at Creative Paperclay®. I tried something new to me recently and I liked it so I am sharing it with all of you!
I tried using the Creative Paperclay® to add dimension to a canvas with a stencil. Guess what? It worked. So here it is.
I painted the canvas with some acrylic paint and let it dry. I used a thick plastic stencil of a rose and spread the Creative Paperclay®over it. I made sure that the clay did not overlap the edges of the stencil and I took the time to press down on the clay to make sure it was sticking to the canvas. I gently removed the stencil by using a sharp edge tool to keep the clay from staying stuck to the inside rides of the stencil. I let the Creative Paperclay® air dry completely over night.
The following day I sanded the the rose with "Sandits" sanding sticks, blew off any dust and then painted. To colour the rose I used Twinkling H2O water color luminescent paints by "Colourate".
I wrote out a quote, inked the edges with distress inks, and adhered with gel medium.

I hope I have inspired you to look at this wonderful medium in a new way. Have fun making your own creations. Please come by my blog to see what other projects I am into.
