A StencilGirl Blog Hop Tutorial/Giveaway!

Hey everybody! It's time for another StencilGirl Talk Blog Hop!
  

This is my contribution to the Hop. As you can see from this piece....
I LOVE NUMBERS!
 
 

 
I started with some Grunge Paste and Fresco Paints from Paper Artsy.

 
I wanted something a little different, so I turned the stencil in a diagonal to the board.
 
I spread a layer of paste on over the stencil onto an 8x8 canvas board and set aside to dry.

 
Then I added several layers of different paints with Cut-n-Dry foam squares.
 
Keep adding colors until you achieve the background colors you like.
 
When dry, sand down areas to reveal lower levels of paint and the white of the paste.


I used Archival Inks and stamps to add black and red images to the corner areas.

 
You can see here that I sanded down layers of paint to reveal different colors underneath.  
 
 
I sanded the center area to get the white paste to show. Then I replaced the stencil over the textured area and stamped a large background stamp of a map with archival ink.

 
Then the fun begins with white pen doodles to make the darker colors pop.

 
I added outlines and shadows to the textured area with brush pens.
 
 
The center needed something, so I embossed a piece of metal with a bingo card set of numbers.
 
Then I added Vintaj Patinas to it, dried it, and sanded it down.
 
It's mounted onto black chipboard and glued to the piece.
 
The last thing I did was cut a piece of black chipboard and add the canvas to it with foam tape strips. It adds another layer of depth.

Online forex trading, it is necessary that you choose the account package that is most suited to your expectations and knowledge level. The various types of accounts offered by Capital One Forex are made with the thought that different traders have different needs. If you have a good understanding of leverage and trading in general, you can be satisfied with a standard account. If you’re a complete beginner, it is a must that you undergo a period of study and practice by the use of a mini account. In general, the lower your risk, the higher your chances, so make your choices in the most conservative way possible at the beginning of your career.
