Leonie Pujol Clarity Show Samples

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Can you believe it is Friday already!

Super excited today as Leonie Pujol is on Hochanda using lots of lovely product from Clarity stamps along with her new frameless stencils.

Leonie is on at 8 am and 4 pm, I hope that you get chance to watch.

Here are my samples using the stencils. I decided to go abstract and just use the masks with different techniques.


For this one I stenciled with Viva Decor relief paste, painted black and dry brushed Inka Gold in Copper, I think this looks like the inside of a circuit board.


For this canvas I have done the shaving foam technique background and then layered the mask which I have then used Inka Gold Hematite over the stencil.


I have used the Gelli Plate and Acrylic Paints with the mask on this card.


I had to do a tag which I have painted with beige acrylic paint, used Viva Decor relief paste and mixed yellow acrylic paint through the mask, used bubble wrap to create texture over the wet paste.
Once dry I then dry brushed Gold Inka Gold.

Thank you for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
