StencilGirl StencilClub December 2013 Inspiration!

Hi! Mary Nasser here today to show you what I did with the EXCLUSIVE December 2013 StencilClub stencils
designed by Mary Beth Shaw!

I decided to use the 6" x 6" stencil with its stars and lovely phases of the moon and make a quick and festive gift for my sister.
Her home is so full of beautiful holiday decorations, and I wanted to add a little something to her home to celebrate the season.

I started out with a 6” x 6” canvas board and collaged some text and images from a vintage book entitled The Wonder of Snow
(my niece and nephew are ALWAYS hoping for snow!)
– but you could even collage elements from holiday cards you send and/or receive.

Then I brushed on two coats of Prussian blue paint.

After that dried, I placed the stencil on the canvas board, masking off the two thinnest moons with post-it notes so as not to cover my image and text.
Using a trowel palette knife (you could use an old credit card or hotel key card, too) I applied Wendy Vecchi Gold Embossing Paste directly onto the stencil. I applied the paste about the same thickness as the stencil. This is super easy to use! After applying the paste, I carefully removed the stencil from the canvas board and cleaned both my stencil and palette knife with a baby wipe.

I hope this showed you how quick and easy you can create a fun and thoughtful holiday gift!
