This tutorial was supposed to come later in this series of using mists and/or spray inks, but earlier this week a question was brought to my attention and so I decided to move this one up a few weeks.
Sometimes mixing gel medium with Gelatos can be too thick for some stencils. This is understandable especially with the Golden brand gel medium.
I have great news though! You can also mix your mists or spray inks into gel medium to use with your stencils. Since it's such a wet medium it thins it out and makes it easier to spread into some of the more detailed stencils. So, let's get right to it!
- gel medium
- mist/spray ink
- palette knife or popsicle stick
- craft mat or palette paper
PREP YOUR GEL MEDIUM
LET'S GET STARTED
I do have a tip for stencils like this one. You want to be sure you go along the diagonal lines rather than against the lines.
The lines are so long that going against them will move your stencil. Also, this will make the lines more clean without leaking underneath the stencil.
VOILAAfter you've filled in all the areas you want to fill, remove your stencil.
Once dry, you can add it to your pocket album or add photos and embellishments and journaling. I'm thinking it would be fun to journal in between the lines on these!
I think this is going to be one of my new favorite stencils. I love diagonal stripes. Oh... it might be fun to make the stripes different colors, like a rainbow!!! I think I know what I'm doing next!
