Carol Ponsford here sharing what I created with the October 2023 StencilClub set
designed by Cat Kerr. This stencil set is packed full of imagery to use in all types of journal pages.
If you would like to see the video showing my process, click this link:
To begin, I rolled black paint on my 8"x10"gel plate with my brayer.
I laid my stencil on the gel plate remembering that I needed to flip the stencil over so
that the word REMEMBER was in reverse so that when I pull the print it would read
correctly. Once the stencil was in place I put a piece of white copy paper on top and
rubbed on top of the paper making sure that I pressed down into all of the crevices of the stencil.
These are the results of the first prints with the stencil still on the gel plate.
I lifted the stencil off and placed another sheet of white copy paper on the plate and
pulled the ghost print. this gave a nice print although it has more texture
than the first print which can be a benefit depending on what you plan to use it for.
Once I had as many parts as I needed I fussy cut out all of the sections that I planned to use.
Then I colored all but the skeleton with Posca Paint Markers using bright colors.
I laid them where I wanted and snapped a photo of the placement on the page.
Then I removed them and painted the page with black gesso.
Using Golden Regular Matte Gel Medium, I glued all of the pieces down on the page.
I left space for a saying and researched what I wanted to write in the space.
The saying I chose was "Canta en el altar de los muertos" which translates
to "Sing at the altar of the dead".
I hope you enjoyed this project and will share what you create. I want to thank
