The whimsical shapes of this month's exclusive StencilClub stencil are delightful!
I had a blast using the stencils with various mediums to create luscious textures on paper which I then used to create a Buttonhole Stitch Book.
Each of the mediums (Light Light Molding Paste, Gesso, and Gloss Gel Medium) react differently when watercolor is painted on top of the stencil designs.
Check out my video tutorial below for all the details!
