Welcome to day 2 of our week of tutorials! For yesterday’s tutorial on woodgraining, please click here.
Today’s tutorial is going to show you how to make some easy stencils to use with paint or ink and add to your scrapbook projects.
ink pad (or paint)
hole punch (circle punch was used in this example)
plain cardstock or scrap paper
1. Take a piece of cardstock and cut it into a strip, slightly larger than your circle punch. (Note: if you want your stencil to last for multiple uses, you may want to make it out of a transparency.)
3. Punch holes along the markings of your paper strip.
4. Use an inkpad to stencil colour onto your layout or project. If you are using paint, it is best to use a sponge or a stippling brush to apply the ink. Be sure that you dab off most of the paint first or you will risk the extra paint leaking under the stencil.
Sticker Page Stencils
a used sheet of stickers. See heart sticker example at left. Tack the sticker so it is not too sticky. You don’t want it to stick to the page you are stenciling. You can use a stamp pad as above to stencil the shape.
Please drop by tomorrow to see another tutorial which will be building up on this woodgrained project!
