Stenciling On Some Embellishments...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog

Whether you stick with STAMPtember stamping or mix it up and pull out a stencil – this week we want to see how you stamp or stencil your way into crafty fun this week!

A super fun way to make the most of a stencil is to use Modeling Paste to create custom embellishments. For this week, I chose to do just that!

Using one of my favorite new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stencils (links to supplies below), I created the flowers for the cover of my journal...

The technique for this is super easy! Simply apply Modeling Paste through your chosen stencil and let dry. Once it is all dry, cut out your shapes....
 Then, simply decorate as you please. I chose to color mine with watercolors and gelatos...
I adhered them to my canvas boards with a liberal coating of matte medium, and voila...the perfect little embellies for my journal...
A nice little place to jot things down!
So... now it's your turn!

Go get your craft on and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from

How awesome is that?

I admire how you can make these pop off the page even with a pastel palette. You have some skills, my friend! I have to tell you as a side note that I got called "Ashli" in one of my blog comments this week. A typo, I'm sure, but I took it as a compliment! :)
