Home Décor with Stencil Butters

 Hello again from design team member, Heidi!

I am making more projects with the Stencil Butters that are available in the Blank Page Muse store.  Part of this post will be me playing around with them and then I will use a couple of the backgrounds for projects.  

The first thing I did was to stencil over some of the Pam Bray patterned papers These papers are definitely thick enough to stand up to the stencil paste.  I really liked the nice opaque coverage. 



I then stenciled some of the apricot colored paste of the paper bag my order came in.  I messed up and a bunch got under the edge of the stencil.  So I went over it again with a metallic gold paste.  This one looks really cool in person and I plan to use it!



As I was going along, I randomly was using some excess paste onto scrap paper (this is the back of an order sheet, so just regular copy paper).  It was looking like this in the end, so I decided to thin out some of the red paste and just paint over the top. (This is one of the neat things about the paste, you can watercolor with it!) I wiped the excess off with a wipe and the parts that were dry resisted the paint and I think this is the coolest background.  You can see the result in the finished piece below.




The top piece is a home décor item that I finished using Ephemera from Pam Bray’s Masquerade line

The stamps for the finished card are from the Woodland Stamp set and Petals and Flowers stamp set, both in the Blank Page Muse shop.


I hope this gave you and idea of some different ways to use your stencil butters!  I will be back with more ideas another day.  Right now, I ‘d better go clean off my craft desk!  Have a great day!

Having Fun with Stencil Butters

 Hello from design team member, Heidi!

 Blank Page Muse is now selling The Crafter’s Workshop Stencil butters!  Kim sent me a few to try and I want to show you how much fun they are!  

(Spoiler alert, when I got done playing with the ones I was sent, I immediately placed an order for more colors on my own dime! They are fun!)

The neat thing about these is that you can use them like a smooth modeling paste over stencils, they are nice and opaque!  But you can also use some water on a brush and get a watery look with them too.  So with one paste you can get two looks.  They also come in shimmers and non-shimmers (just take a look on the website at the close up photo and it is obvious which are which).  I think I like the shimmers better but can see how the flat ones would work better in many project types.



The two easiest things to do with these is to apply them over stencils.  If you don’t want to use a lot of product, go ahead and apply it over your stencil with your fingers. This seems to use a lot less than if you used a palette knife and it dries the fastest!   Above, I applied it over textured cardstock, which looks so neat! I loved the tone on tone look there too!


Second, I blended two colors over a stencil.  This time, I didn’t want to get my fingers dirty so I applied it with a baby wipe.  This technique is a little different because more product builds up on the edge of the stencil opening and then more wipes off in the centers of the design so you get more texture.  They blend really well too.





I finished these cards with two of my favorite monsters in the Carmen Medlin designs which is part of the I Brake for Stamps Shoppe.  I love these guys because I can literally color them any color and they always look cute!
