Hello my lovely friends, how was your week? What have you created? Have you played with paint sticks yet? I have – I’ve been making Easter cards using paint sticks. But today I wanted to show you how to use paint sticks with stencils in a bit different way.
I am going to show you how to create artsy images using paint sticks with stencils – in a super easy way.
Why Paint sticks?
As you may already know – I am crazy about paint sticks – they are mess-free, easy to use, easy to wash, affordable and AWESOME! All the cards I’ve made with them have this hollographic kind of shine that you can’t get with other paints, inks or anything. And they are SO ADDICTIVE – once you use them, you want to try more and more techniques and just can’t stop! LOL But seriously – they are BRILLIANT! See for yourself.

using paint sticks with stencils – extended
Phew, what a week… It’s been a tough week for me, healthwise… I don’t really know what it is but I have been feeling so tired most of the time, I slept much more than usually and still felt as if I had walked long miles carrying heavy loads (which I had not!), and headache on top of that… So not much creativity or crafting for me. But, luckily, I had a video waiting to be processed and managed to do that. I hope you find it inspring. Without further ado – here’s the video – enjoy!
Now, are you thinking of trying paint sticks with stencils? That’s fantastic, you will love them, I’m sure of that! You can use this technique with any stencil or make a stencil out of a die-cut leftover – just like I did. And you don’t have to fill in the shape with white paint – that step turned out to be completely pointless. I could have drawn an outline with a pencil (doh!) but it was an experiment and – who knows – I may use it one day! I know what you’re thinking, what if you go over the lines? Well, nothing, you will cover that later when colouring inside the shape, so don’t stress out about it, just enjoy the creative process 🙂
