This months StencilGirl Club design was right on time for me! I go through phases - at one point I could not have enough tree stamps, then it was pumkins, then penquins. Now I am in a bird phase. :)
All of the designs I made started the same way - I dabbed gesso through the stencil on one piece of cardstock, flipped the stencil over and rubbed on a second piece of cardstock. Basically, I get the positive and the negative. The examples below were over gelli print designs. To see more on the method and supplies I use for gelli printing, and also for making my own design paper, click here.
After the gesso dried, I pulled out all my pencils and just colored and colored, and colored. All these designs will be made into greeting cards at some point, but I just couldn't wait to share!
This one I did over plain black cardstock. I used another stencil in the set that had the lovely swirls.
This one was over a gelli print.
This one I did over textured cardstock and added additional gesso with my finger. I cannot decide how, or if, I want to add the color. I really dig the simplicity and texture.
You can visit the StencilGirl blog to see more designs with this month's release, as well as many beautiful designs with their other stencils.
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
