Home Decor with Clear Scraps ~

Hi, Connie here with a home decor project using several of the, newly released, Mascils by Clear Scraps.  I always look forward to the new Mascils that are released each year and this year was no exception.  Beautiful birds, flowers, shiplap, an owl, an unicorn, hearts and plaid hearts, just to name a few.  They come in 6" and 12" and are perfect for mix media projects.

This was such a fun piece to create.  I started by adding color to muslin fabric and then started using the Mascils to create the different patterns.

On this section, of the muslin fabric, the color was added and then stencils (using acrylic paint) and the modeling paste, for the bird.  I use a pallet knife but an old credit card or gift card works great also, when applying the modeling paste.   After using the modeling paste rinse the stencil with water and set aside to dry.

On this corner the quote was stenciled on using black acrylic paint.  It only takes a small amount of paint to get a great print, using a stencil.  Less is more in this case.  Using to much paint can cause the paint to go under the stencil, making a mess of your project.  Practice, to get a feel as to how much paint or ink to add when using a stencil, is always a good idea.
