This month Kellie released a couple of her popular clear stamps in digital format and they're awesome! I figured I'd try something a little different rather than a layout and made a poster print. SUPER EASY. A little messy but a whole lotta fun.
I used one of the stamps from the Coffee set because it's totally me. I love coffee. Always and forever :)
To make this you just need a few things:
1 - Your digital stamp! Obviously ;)
2 - Stencil template. And Silhouette to cut it with. Unless you have the patience of a saint and want to print then hand-cut your own stencil. I used cardstock for this attempt but vinyl would probably be better.
3 - Canvas or thick paper to paint onto. I used a cheap 8x10 canvas panel thingy (technical term lol- only cost me $5 or something like that)
4 - Your medium. The messy part. I used modelling paste and acrylic paint mixed together but you could just paint it if you wanted. I wanted a bit more texture which the modelling paste added!
5 - Something to mix your paint/paste together (if you're using the 2) and a brush to paint with.
Once you've got all your bits together the rest is easy to do. Just put the stencil over your canvas, I used washi tape to hold it in place then went to town painting it. No style to applying the paint/paste, I just slathered it on so it was all covered :)
As I mentioned earlier, I think a vinyl stencil might have helped stop the "bleeding" I ended up with on some of the letters (because I really did go to town with the paste/paint on the template, haha) but I don't mind how it looks!
I've put my canvas in an inexpensive white frame to finish it off, but you could leave it as is too!
I've put this one up on my shelf that sits above my computer and I love it! Fits in perfectly.
Also had some fun with the cross out of the Rad set. Used neon pink paint on this one though it's turned out awesome. Not sure what I'm doing with this canvas as yet but I had so much fun making it, I don't really care haha.
And that's it! Easy right?! Give it a try! And let me know so I can see :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
