ATP Exchange - June Challenge

Hello everybody! We are very sorry for a little delay with our June Challenge, but we have been very very busy last week. But at least we prepared something very nice for you, something that we are sure most of you are going to love.

Our new challenge is a little bit easier than last ones, but that doesn't mean that you can't show your creativity. This time we are focusing on specific products - The Crafter's Workshop stencils. We want you to share with us your works using them. It can be whatever you want - tags, ATCs, cards, layouts, art journals, canvases, collages etc. In your blog post remember to link to the specific stencil you have used on your project. All other rules of our ATP Exchange Challenges can be found here.

For this challenge Jamie prepared an interesting background working on a manilla tag. He covered it with black gesso and painted with white Sharpie and Golden paint through Entrelac stencil. When dry he mixed 3D Gloss Gel with copper glitter and spread through with the palette knife.

Products Jamie used:

To inspire you I would also like to share some of my older works using stencils I designed for The Crafter's Workshop. 12x12 mixed-media canvas using XOXO stencil with sprays and Dina Wakley acrylic paints applied on collage background.

A simple art journal page using Distress Paints applied through Folk Art Flower stencil. Then I painted around the shapes with black gesso and added some journaling using a white Sharpie.

Products used for this project:

Below is also short video using Sea Bubbles stencil to create an art journal page. Enjoy! :)

This time we also have Pinterest Inspiration Board with some fabulous tutorials from The Crafter's Workshop team.
