12 Tags for Christmas - February
Monoprinting (a great way to get more mileage out of stencils) and embossed texture paste were the techniques presented in Tim's February tag--here's my Christmas version.
I stayed true to the monoprinting but....
The stencil image (a doily) just didn't develop like I wanted it to so I placed the stencil back over the printing and used paint through the stencil's negative shapes in the traditional fashion.
Without the special texture paste that Tim used, I had to improvise. But I came up with an alternative that yielded a new stencil in the process.
I stamped text on Yupo and cut out the letters to make a stencil then used brown-tinted paste medium covered with glitter.
I've said it before--Yupo makes great stencils (cuts like butter, is durable and easy to clean) and now I have a stencil I can use for future projects.
I love the Santa image from Tim's 2016 Christmastime Ephemera Pack (wish there was more than one) and framed it with tiny dots of Ranger's Liquid Pearls.
