Stencil Girl and Colourcraft Blog Hop




I am so excited about today's post and to be part of this amazing blog hop. 

Stencil Girl and Colourcraft have teamed up to bring you some fantastic projects over the next 3 days.
I have created a piece of home decor using some of my favourite products.



Let me walk you through the process for creating this project.



Working on a gesso coated canvas board I used a brayer to apply a layer of blue Aztec paint. 


I then add gold Aztec paint also using the brayer. I dry this with my heat gun and then add some Prussian Blue brusho to some gel texture medium and apply it with a palette knife to the canvas. I heat this with my heat gun and allow some areas to bubble, I then scrape this with a clean palette knife to distress the area.


Next I add detail to the border of my canvas by stippling some gold Aztec metallic paint through the random  lace stencil from Stencil Girl. 



To add the text I mixed black Brusho with some of the gel texture medium and applied it with a palette knife through the Lets go "1" stencil. This is a fabulous stencil that allows you to build your own verses and sentiments.


The finished piece has turned out beautifully. I am so happy with it and can't wait to hang it in my home.
