Using Stencils

I love the look of stencils and I have a drawer full of them.  I need to remember to pull them out more often.  We have an elderly couple here having their 63rd anniversary.  Thought they would enjoy this.

I was trying out some new pearlized paste.  I heated it while it was still a bit damp and it bubbled all up 3-D like.  I had spritzed the black bacground with a homemade glitter spritz and then the pearlized effect of the paste is WOW!!  Pretty!  For a bit of color I just touched up the water and one swan with chalks which stuck well to the paste even after it was completely dried.  And now….I think I hear the house calling my name…clean me, clean me.  I am entering this in Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge to use paste.  Also entering into Dream Weavers anything that flutters.  Swans have wings, they flutter, right?

  3. Wow! Very pretty. As graceful as swans look on the water, I don't really picture them being fluttery, but like you said, they have wings!
