The month's theme on the 9ATC Group is Mixed Media with us of Stencils. I decided to use the Layering Stencils technique Tim Holtz showed in his Sept tag. I started by using pearlescent stencil paste over a stencil in the upper right corner of the atc (which is cut up manilla folder). Then I heat set the stencil paste with a heat tool. Remember to wash the stencil paste off the stencil right away.
Next, used the same stencil over the bottom of the atc and sponged on white acrylic paint and let it dry.
Then, lightly sprayed the atc and ran three colors of Distress Stain over the atc. Again, lightly sprayed the stains with water, then heat set. The stencil past absorbed some of the Distress stain, but the acrylic paint acts a resist to the stains.
