Pazzles Stencil Material: Brick Wall Mixed Media Canvas

Brick Wall Mixed Media

Melinda here with you today. I am super excited to share my project with you today. This month I was tasked with creating a project that used the Pazzles Stencil Material. So here is what I came up with!  I created this wall hanging. I started by using the Pazzles Stencil Material . I was real excited when I got my hands on some. It is a much lighter weight than the typical stencil sheets you get at the craft and hobby stores. That means you can get a lot more creative with the type of cuts. I used the Brick Wall file. I created it in my Pazzles Software. Once I was happy with the look, I cut it out of the material. It cut like BUTTER!!! I used a semi-used mat and it had no trouble sticking down while it cut all the “bricks” out.

Mixed Media Brick Wall Gesso

Once I was done cutting the material, I turned to the internet and made some homemade gesso. I found a tutorial online.  I used the baking soda, paint and glue version. Once I mixed that up, I simply laid my stencil down on my canvas and spread the gesso all over. I really didn’t need any adhesive to hold the stencil down as I just carefully went over it with the gesso.

Shaped Journaling Spots Cutting Collection: WPC, SVG and AI

Shaped Tropical Journaling SpotsAfter I make a really cute scrapbook page, I’m sometimes hesitant to add journaling because I’m afraid I will wreck the design, or make a mistake that messes up the whole page. This Shaped Journaling Spots Cutting Collection is my solution to this dilemma. These shaped journaling spots are cute enough to add to your design rather than take away from it, and they give you a small spot for recording the memories to go along with the photos. You can write your journaling before gluing it to the page so you can correct any mistakes before it’s too late. If you hate your handwriting (like I do) then use the Pen Tool or the print & cut method for your journal spots.

Twinkling Flower Light Covers with Stencil Material

DIY Flower Lights with Stencil Material
I have been seeing people put very cute string lights on porches, outdoor spaces, game rooms and even kids rooms. It is something that is so fun and appealing that it made me realize it would be so fun to be able to create a cover for those lights.

DIY Flower Lights with Stencil Material

I created some shapes that include flowers, starbursts and covers. You can mix and match or use just one style for your entire string of lights. The fun thing with these is, they are very easy to change out, so you can change with the seasons or holidays if you want.
