valentine journal spread

I was playing around with ink sprays, and texture magic. I am running low on that stuff so I decided to make my own. with the baby powder…….Its like a cross between spackle and mud… I must have had been holding my tongue wrong , because it s working more like quick sand then a medium , and  When it finally dries  . It cracks and falls off what a mess. I think I’ll just buy it instead… LOL… 50 percent off  coupons are needed… well I scraped it off and started it over again. so the  dimension isn’t quite what I wanted on the cupid angel. but shes good  for now until I get more texture…

making my own stencils….

I have been playing with different types of ways to make stencils. I used clear transparent contact paper, it s really hard to get good cuts on this.  I thought it would be great for protecting the papers from paint inks or what ever I throw at  My home made stencils.  I”ve used plastic furniture cover material in the past , also it was real cool because it sticks well to stencil on your paper.  But STILL didn’t get a clear cut. I did make some stencils of my own designs of Johhny Depp …{CRY BABY}  and Dave Matthews and some others a while back. for glass etching.  It took days and was a real long process and I didnt use a coating on them and could only use them a couple times.. But Then I was taking  some FREE ART CLASSES on line. From  Terri Sproul on facebook. {Tell HER I SENT YOU…} A little plug for a friendly Artist. Any ways  she was cutting out photos from magazines using the  silhouette’s as stencils glue the photo to card stock place PACKING TAPE TO FRONT AND BACK of photo then cut out. the tape will protect your stencil, from all the fun things You throw at it .. Like Texture magic, spackle plaster, ECT.
