Trace is enjoying her journey...

We're off and running and we're also delighted to have our talented Trace back with us this month. Trace is taking first turn at showing us her second DT make for the month...

"Well for my second piece I have used a Tim Holtz layering stencil with alcohol inks to get a cool faux bleach effect and combined this with texture paste for the backing tag, again through a Tim Layering stencil. for all the details please see my blog .x"

This is gorgeous Trace and a great technique of mixing the different media for your stencilling - thank you!

You can enter as many times as you like so why not try different techniques with different media for your entries? We're hoping to see some clever and creative uses for your stencils.

We have a guest post for you next, on the 5th, so do come back and see us then!

  1. Hello Trace,
    I am impressed with the effect of the AH with the stencil, the Tag has a fabulous design combining with great elements.

  2. Gorgeous texturing using that layering stencil Trace, it adds depth behind the focal point and draws the eye around the tag. Fab!!!! Chris xxx
