Nathalie Kalbach Stencils on a Dreamweaver Thursday


Now that we are in full stride on our hop with Nathalie and Friends, it is time to bring in our Dreamweaver Thursday focus with stencils and since we are hopping with product sets that include stencils we are in double stencil mania.

Each of the three Foam and Cling Rubber Stamp sets by Nathalie Kalbach include a quality plastic stencil that add depth and dimension to a project. Let’s have a close up look at each stencil from these projects.

The stencil included in the Bird set is more like our templates as it has removable pieces used for masks. The intricate designs of the stencils in the Elephant and Urban Scribbles have great textural depth for layering. Each stencil design add complementary details to the stamps as well which gives us room to bring out Dreamweaver Stencils to fill in the gaps.

Here is a fun example of bringing our Dreamweaver Stencils into mixed media with a journal page by Nathalie Kalbach.

A tip using your metal stencils with sticky mediums is to always keep the stencil flat on a surface while peeling away the paper substrate, that way the metal stencil is not damaged or warped and ready for the next project.

Before we get to our hop list, take a peek at the gorgeous dimension the stencil from Urban Scribbles makes in this project close up by Gwen Lafleur.

  1. Getting so much information on how to use the stencils and the different types of stamps.
    this has been an exciting week. Can’t wait to get my hands on some of stamps and stencils.
