Layout featuring Rebecca Baer Stencils

Hello friends!  Sharing a layout today that I created using Rebecca Baer Entwined Stencil Medium and Enchanted Vine Medium.  When I started working on this layout I was looking through some photos and found this horse and it reminded me of a a horse you would see in a fairy tale.  Anyway the Rebecca's Stencils are perfect for these types of photos because they are full of flourishes and wrought iron gates and things that make you feel like you are in a fantasy land.

I'll give you a quick step by step on how I created this layout.

Starting with Rebecca Baer Entwined Stencil Medium and a coordinating mist , spray through the stencil and dab off excess with a paper towel.

Continue until you have all the areas sprayed that you would like to spray.

Using Enchanted Vine Medium I added a little modeling paste in random areas on the layout.  Let everything dry.

Next steps are to mat your photo and start adding your embellishments.  I fussy cut some flowers from coordinating paper and layered them and poped them up around the photo.

Using the scraps of paper I hand made some roses using Heartfelt Creations dies. Next I added some glimmer mist in a coordinating color and allowed it to drip through the modeling paste and down the page.  I added some copper embossing powder to the flowers as well as the modeling paste and also added some seed beads to the flowers and randomly on the layout.

The final step was to add embossing powder to the chipboard title and heat set. Add some script stamping and your layout is finished!

I hope you will give some of these techniques a try, they are so much fun and they add texture and interest to any layout.

To alter these chipboard pieces I simply painted them with Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional Paint - Ferrari Red.

To give them even more sparkle I embossed them with Distress Glitter.

Adhere them to your card base and add your embellishments.  The flowers are some from my stash and Melissa Frances Pink Delicate Blossom Flowers.

Lovely Layout

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a layout I created featuring Rebecca Baer's Large Mosaic Stencil.

I'll begin by sharing the layout with you and then share the details.

To begin this layout I started with my background paper and Rebecca Baer's Large Mosaic Stencil and modeling paste.  Spread the modeling paste over the stencil until you have the coverage desired.

Allow it to dry.

Next steps are to build your matting and adhere your photo.

Paint your chipboard pieces with black gesso and then highlight with metallic paste in a coordinating color.

Embellish your layout with chipboard pieces and florals.

To finish it off I highlighted the stenciling with glimmer mist and a paintbrush. I added sequins, splatters and beads for a final touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Prairie Rose Cafe blog today!

Mixed Media Mini Album with Rebecca Baer Stencils

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a mini album I altered using Rebecca Baer's Entwined Medium stencil and lots of mixed media.

This mini album was especially fun because I used a variety of products and used one of my favorite techniques to give it a look that I love.  I love using embossing powder on modeling paste because it gives your project shimmer and makes the stenciling stand out even more than usual.

Here is a quick step by step to complete the cover of this mini.

Start off by covering the inside of  your album with gesso.

Once the gesso is dry, beginning with the inside cover start spraying to give it color.

Continue adding color using the Rebecca Baer's Entwined Medium stencil  until the whole inside cover is sprayed.

Next step is to add modeling paste using the Rebecca Baer's Entwined Medium stencil  and a palette knife.  Be sure to cover the back and side.

Once the modeling paste is dry , cover it with gesso.  Let dry.

Using the same sprays you used on the inside spray the cover until it is completely covered. let dry or use a heat gun to dry.

Once your album is dry using versa mark gently rub over the top of the modeling paste and sprinkle embossing powder over the top and heat .

Your album is ready to embellish.  I used hand made flowers and leaves for mine but you can do whatever you desire.

Hope you give this fun technique a try and be sure to stop by Rebecca's store and purchase some of her elegant stencils!  They will make any project stand out from all the others.
