Today, I am using Dreamweaver Stencils
to create stone (and an embellishment) on a scrapbook page. It is a great way to make something that is truly one of a kind. The method is primarily the Double Glitter Technique
.....but, no glitter was used today. Let me explain....
4) Place the metal on the exposed adhesive surface SOAP SIDE DOWN.
5) Pour the embossing powder over the sections that you would like to be that color. You do not need to use a lot. I used Real Rust, Temple Stone, Mermaid Tear, and Brownstone.
6) Press lightly with your fingers and blend powders into any areas that need additional coverage.
7) Flip the project over and carefully peel the adhesive paper off of the stencil. Be sure to leave the stencil flat on a hard surface as you remove the paper.
8) Use heat gun to emboss the powders.
9) After the embossing powder cools, pour Micro Black over the project and rub in with your finger.
10) Use the stencil brush to brush off any excess powder. This is also a great way to distress the black a little if you brush aggressively.
11) Heat set.
12) Repeat steps 1-11, as you will need two to create a frame.
13) The technique for the feathers is almost identical to steps one through eleven. The powders used are Siam Silver, Cranberry Wine (on the edges of the feathers) Girls' Night Out and Micro Black. The pinks are placed into position by placing the outer color on the stencil first and pushing it into place. Follow with the inner colors.
14) Before adding the Miro Black, be sure to trim off most of the extra (rough cut) with scissors.
15) Heat set and trim closer to the image.
16) For the letters, simply apply the Embossing Adhesive directly with the dauber on the bottle, cover with embossing powder and heat set.
17) Repeat steps 15-16, so that you have two layers of embossing powder.
18) Create the silver edge by using a paint brush to apply the Embossing/Enamel Adhesive, cover with powder and heat set.
19) To create the frame, first cut card stock the size you want the frame to be and adhere the picture inside.
20) Cutting around the "stones" whenever possible, cut the images to fit your photograph. Save the extra to use around the page.
21) Remove the backing paper and adhere to the photo and mat.
22) Trim around the outside of the frame, making a "rocky" edge if possible.
Here is another look at the finished product.
