STAMPlorations Monthly Stencil Challenge - October 2019

STAMPlorations has started up the monthly challenges after a summer vacation. I have moved from the CAS DT to the Stencil DT and will be showcasing STAMPlorations' ARTplorations line of stencils.

The monthly challenges start on the 1st of each month and we will have a reminder post on the 15th of each month. There will be prizes for those that participate by entering a project using stencils on the challenge "linky": $15 gift certificate to the winner and $10 to the runner up.$5 gift certificates each to three randomly drawn players.

For my first project this month I created these two pages in my watercolor art journal using A Bloom and Three Buds stencil. The technique I used is reverse stenciling. I started by placing the stencil onto the page on the right and I sprinkled black brusho watercolor powder over the open spaces of the stencil. I then misted the stencil with water to activate the powder. Once I felt it had enough water I folded the left page over the right and pressed the pages together and rubbed over the entire page. That is the reverse stenciling technique. I love how the black Brusho powder when wet breaks down the black into these various colors!

Please go to the STAMPlorations blog to see the other projects the DT has created and to join in the challenge!
