  • June stenciling challenge

    Hi everybody!

    And welcome to the new June challenge!

    This month we are gonna try to do some stenciling!
    Paper scrappers and Art Journalers use it a lot, but it can also easily be done digitally.

    And it is a good way to use all those brushes and stamps in your stash!
    How do you make a stencil?
    Step 1: Create a " cloud" of stamps and brushes on your layout, anyway you want!
    Step 2: Choose a word too " cut out" and write it on top of the cloud. Be sure to use a bold font, so your word can be easily read.
    Step 3: Than use your selection tool and select the word (marching ants)
    Step 4: Change to the layers where al your brushes are and delete, so the inside of the word is empty.
    Step 5: Make the word "non-visible" by using the little eye before the layer.
    Step 5: (Optional) You can ad a line around the word to accentuate, but that is not necessary


    If you have any questions, please let me now; I'll be glad to help!

    Here are my layouts:





    But most important: Have a lot of fun!!!

    Thank you so much for looking and I'm looking forward to your layouts!!

    Sonja



    I made some printscreens from the whole process. You can find the here:

          thank you for the interesting Challenge!
          hope it`s right?
          I put different brushes on top of each other, then use the words as a mask for the Brushes, and give a contour and shadow.
          Sorry for my bad english!

            It's so beautiful, Veronica! And you are so fast! I love the beautiful photos of the flowers and the gorgeous blending in the background.
            There is nothing wrong with your English by the way.
            You have used a different method for the words than I have, but I love it very much! It's all about the creativity and the fun!
            Thank you so much for participating!

          This is a super cool challenge! I've used a similar technique quite often by cutting out letters on paper layers, but I don't think I've EVER used it to make a paint/brush stencil, so I'm super excited!

                  I'm so happy you understand, Nancy! I still made a topic with some printscreens, so you can follow along; hope it helps!
                  The link is in the first post.

                I'm so sorry you are confused, Nancy. That means I didn't explain it very good. So sorry!

                On the first layout I used the word "FLY" as a stencil on top of the cloud of brushes with the butterfly.
                On the second layout I cut out the word "Remenisce" in the bottom left corner and than added a white line around it to make it stand out.

                After I made the stencils I used them on a layout and added photos, frames en embellishments to finish.

                I will try to do make some printscreens today and show you.

                  Oh, my friend, you explained it perfectly; I just was not seeing it. I was looking at the word FLY and REMENISCE and thinking they were just words typed on the page. NOW I see they are cut through all that is going on beneath them!!! I am thinking there is another step; that you do something with the stencil. I am trying to make more out of it than there really is!! OK!!! Off to play!!!!!
