A stencil and paint ~ Clear Scraps!

Hi, Connie here with a fun mixed media project using a bunch of stencils by Clear Scraps! To be exact I used eight different, totally unique stencils. The more the better.  You will need some acrylic paint,  texture paste and a canvas.  I used a 12" x 12" piece of canvas material for this project.

Clear Scraps stencils Connie Mercer

I started with adding texture paste and then paint with the stencils.  layering the stencils give such a great look.  Outlining the images, with a permanent marker pen,  is also fun.   Line up your favorite colors and start adding them to your canvas.   After all the paint was added and the canvas was completely dry,  use an acrylic spray sealer over the canvas.  Makes everything look bright and colorful.

Clear Scraps products used:
6" stencils: Polka Dots, Stars, Spiral, Heart Arrow, Spiral Dots, Diamonds and Chevron.
Border stencil: Hope is
Other :
acrylic paint, distress stains, Faber Castell/Whipped Spackle, vintage trim, Darkroom Door and Beacon Adhesive
