Prompt #1

Good morning!
Today is my first show and tell for my challenge Ten to the power of Å-some! The first prompt I chose was:
Use template together with art medium
First I thought I would go to hubby and ask to use some of his art medium, gesso and primer and all kind of fun stuff he uses for interesting texture to his projects. But then I thought that was kind of like cheating with the challenge borrowing his stuff. Perhaps I could use some of my own stuff? In my paint box I found two old tubes of effect paint called Gloss Touch and I decided to try that as my medium.
I found a perfect tool for the job in my kids' clay bin and then I started with my projects. Thgis is what the first page looked like when it finally dried! It worked perfectly and the shine looked so cool!
This first sheet of cardstock turned into this layout with photos from last sumer when we visited the activity house of Mulle Meck (a popular child book character) with the kids.
Needless to say I didn't stop with that first stencil project! I had to use the pink paint as well and I made a messier background with a brick stencil and that resulted in this layout with my daughter playing dress up :)
I also made a sheet with a camera stencil that I later turned into this layout with scrap paper as rays.
As for this prompt I think I'm done! It was fun and I made something I've never tried before!
Did I get any shopping urges? Of course I did. I'd like to buy some stencils that can be used over and over again, perhaps some dots, chevrons and fun small patterns. Will I be buying any modeling paste or art medium? Not right now. I'll see what I can find in hubby's stash first and play around a bit.
Have a nice day!


  1. Good for you for trying these new techniques! Love how they all turned out!

  2. Fun stuff! I really love the pink brick background, and all the fun layers on the page! Beautiful layouts!

  3. OOoo... I love this idea!! So fun1!
