Jillibean Soup Happy Hues & Stencils Tutorial

All this month, Jillibean Soup has been challenging their Design Team to create a variety of projects showcasing their new Happy Hues Acrylic Paint. I decided to play along with the challenge and used the paints and one of their super cute stencils to create a fun handmade title. Below, you can check out a quick little tutorial on how I created the title.

Handmade Scrapbook Page Title Using A Stencil, Modeling Paste and Acrylic Paint | Tutorial

Supplies:
Modeling Paste: Liquitex
Stencil, Acrylic Paint: Jillibean Soup
Water Color Paper
Spatula
Scissors
Washi Tape

Use washi tape to attach the stencil to your paper and apply the modeling paste using the spatula. Remove the stencil and let the modeling paste dry. Make sure to wash your stencil to remove the modeling paste before it dries.  I choose to use water color paper because it is more tolerant to paint and other such media and you won't have much (if any) warping.

After the modeling paste has dried, reattach the stencil to your paper using the washi tape and apply paint using a small paint brush.  Remove the stencil, wash it and let the paint dry.

After the paint has dried use a pair of fine tip scissors to trim around the word.

Here you can see the texture and dimension it adds to the layout without adding a lot of bulk.

You might have noticed these painted circles when you were looking at the layout above. I created them by dipping the lip of a glass jar into the paint and using it as a stamp. I love how it adds a little bit more color to the design along with a touch of playfulness!
