I enjoyed this technique and made time for journaling using the technique with images from Bee Crafty stamps and quotes from Visible Image using TH Distress Inks and Versafine Black onyx Ink . I made the stencil myself using 2 hole punches.
as you can see the poor light makes the page so dull :(
Luckily today the sunshine is out so I took a much better pic out in the garden :)
I like the way the White DI acts as a resist to the black ink when I stamped images over the Bokeh back ground.
I love creating faux brickwork and paving so thoroughly enjoyed decorating the newer version of the Woodform Crafts Haunted House for their 16th Sept Hochanda Show.
Trying to capture the textures and shading Roof is cardboard cut to shape painted in light grey and then black for shading trying to judge the fall of the moonlight on the structures. Textured paste and TH Stencil for red brickwork. Painted then aged. Path /garden modelling paste through a different stencil, again painted then aged.
Tree with string to add texture / interest, painted. Headstones Andy Skinner Embossing powders one I added a cameo for interest.
Characters for added interest.

Time for a crafty play - I decorated a 20 x 11 cm plaque. I painted it with white acrylic paint then added differing layers of Stamperia crackle (white). I added washes of Raw Umber and then Walnut stain drying and rubbing back until I had the effects I wanted. above and below photos at the same stage different background.
I then used Stamperia stencil ( you will notice I later washed and lost the butterflies as they were not giving me the effect I was looking for).
I added further washes and used an Andy Skinner background stamp for added interest. Plus using a stipling brush added some nice Walnut splatters .
I prepared some cardstock with TH Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber Inkpads stamped and embossed one of my favourite Visible Image quotes and arranged my TH Transparent Wings.
Having sealed the piece I added the quote and butterflies.
It was nice to get out again into the garden to take several photos of the finished project.
The lower and top butterflies are positioned as if the butterflies are in flight.
Thank you for dropping by I would like to enter my plaque into the following Challenges
I was thrilled to be asked to decorate a small MDF for Woodform Crafts debut on Honchanda.
I started by painting and stamping the inside of the box A happy accident meant used Iridescent bronze in the rusty layering technique which resulted in a rich sheen - quite yummy!
The chest was a Potions kit so lots of embellishments to alter and decorate - I only used a few so lots for future projects too . The book I decorated using printouts from Heather's Thicketworks site - if you have never visited before you are in for a treat ! The mortar and pestle are Andy Skinners Granite Embossing powder.
For the outside having glued the chest I altered by using Stamperia rice paper, embellishments and paints for rusting I did think of using a metal chain around the edge but stuck with rust!!
I added metallic embellishments from my stash - really enjoyed decorating the chest.
Inside the chest for the lovely Jo Ward I left a scroll with ingredients and chocolate
