Hello! Welcome to the Darkroom Door Stencil Blog Hop! It's Rachel Greig here and we are so excited to finally have stencils as a part of our product range. To kick of our new stencil release, we have partnered with several amazing artists to bring you a bunch of inspiration! We also have a big giveaway too, so be sure to read to the bottom for all the details.
First, let's talk about the designs. Our new stencils are based off our rubber stamp designs. The Mesh, Circles and Crackle stencils are all based off our Background Stamps of the same name. The Wildflowers, Ferns and Blossom stencils are based off stamp designs from the Wildflowers, Leaves and Bold Blossoms stamp sets.
Our stencils are available in Large 9" x 12" and co-ordinating Small 6" x 4.5" sizes. Perfect for art journals, scrapbooking, cardmaking, mixed media and more.
If you're new to stencils, here are a few ways you can use them:
• Create backgrounds, layers, textures and patterns!
• Use with inks, paints, texture pastes and other mediums.
• Trace and outline with markers and pens.
• Spray through the stencil using an ink spray.
• Sponge over the stencil with paint or ink.
• Scrape texture paste and other mediums through the stencil to create raised textured effects.
• Mix and match stencil designs to create layers in your projects.
• Suitable for art journals, card making, scrapbooking, mixed media and more!
For the blog hop, I wanted to share some ways the stencils can be used with gel printing. Each of these stencils can create some great designs with your gelli plate. Here's a couple of backgrounds using the patterned stencils:
The Wildflowers, Ferns and Blossom stencils help create some bold designs! Here's a look at some prints created with those stencils. I've also used the Mesh, Crackle and Circles stencils to create some of the backgrounds in these too:
