Guest Designing at CAS Mix Up


I am absolutely delighted to be this month's Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up, where the theme is layered stencils. I had so much fun experimenting with stencils and here is what I made.


I started with a piece of watercolour paper and applied a pale blue wash, stencilled in green, and then again over that with the green grass, blue mesh and dragonfly. The butterfly was heat embossed in black and water coloured with distress inks and sentiment heat embossed in white.

I do hope you will be able to join in the fun and I look forward to seeing your stencil creations!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. x
