Rose Garden: A New 2017 stencil from The Crafters Workshop

Today as a Design Team Member for The Crafters Workshop we can start showing you the new stencils for the 2017 Winter Release!!!! I'm so excited. 66 NEW STENCILS!! There are also some surprises coming too. 

The Crafters Workshop will be sharing the new stencils and surprises from CHA Creativation this weekend on all their social media sites.  Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Let us know what you love this year.

The Crafter's Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.

Let me introduce you to the new stencil called Rose Garden (TCW711) designed by Hot Off The Press. You can get it in 12x12 and 6x6.

Isn't it GORGEOUS!

With a new stencil I like to just play with it. I decided to use two tags, TCW Modeling Paste, TCW NEW Gel Medium Matte, tissue paper, Golden High Flow Acrylics, Golden Fluid Acrylics, Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid (Satin).

I added the stencil to both tags with TCW Modeling Paste.

This next picture is hard to see but I wanted to see what it would look like if I used the new Matte Gel Medium and layered tissue paper over the top of the stencil design.

It takes all the hard edges off the modeling paste. I'm going to try it again but use more modeling paste next time.

I used TCW Gel Medium Matte to attach all the bits and piece of a dictionary pages to the edges of the tags.

I added a layer of TCW White Gesso and let it dry.
Then I do the unthinkable I glazed it in black!

Let it dry for a bit then wiped it away with a baby wipe. One thing I didn't like about the tissue paper is that it took all the nooks and crannies away from the modeling paste so the glazing didn't come out as I would have liked. That's why its great to experiment.

So the next best thing is add more of the stencil design with modeling paste.

I glazed it again. I love the way it looks.  I wanted to leave it black and white but I had an accident and spilled a little paint. So I went with it.

Yellow high flow acrylics spilled on a corner of the project so I just continued.

Here is the entire project. I'm loving the color combination now that its finished.
