I used Andy Skinner stencils, Media Fluid Acrylics, and a Media Mister. These are just a few of the cool products that are in the Starter Kit offered by DecoArt that could be yours this week, on Thursday.

 

Enter here for a chance to win this starter set and lots more during the Cloth Paper Scissors Holiday Sweepstakes!

I started with the Andy Skinner Shedded stencil. It was long and fit the page perfectly. Loved that.

I taped the ends to the journal to prevent "bouncing" of the stencil while I applied paint. I decided to use a small foam brush to apply the paint, and discovered an unexpected result that added texture to the page.

By applying the paint on with a brush instead of pouncing it as I usually do, I ended up with the paint collecting or pooling near the edges of many of the stencil openings creating a nice effect.

 

I used one of the "girls" and the stars from the Hippy Chic stencil, using the stars as both stencils and masks.

 

I also used the Snake's web stencil in the bottom corner for added interest.

 

These are just a few of the products that you'll get in the DecoArt Starter Set. Don't miss out!
