Challenge Title: Stencils!
Hostess: Jeanne S
Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages.
My challenge today is to use stencils with two types of mediums (ink, paints, gesso, embossing paste, markers, Smooch... you get the idea!)
Don't have a stencil? You can make one with a punched or die cut piece of cardstock, or use a mesh bag or mesh tape (or pretty much anything that has holes). Paper doilies make great stencils!
Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

I used two different media for my stencilling - Lefranc & Bourgeois Gilding Wax, and Stickles.
I used two different stencils too - a bought one and one I made for one of Dina's earlier challenges. Do I get a bonus point for that .
Loved this challenge.. I forgot to say in the description I also used a dryer sheet under the mesh in one corner.... I do like the rough texture of the dryer sheet and it is a little more dense than tissue paper... AND I did it again- uploaded on a Sunday..... So likely wont show up right away.....

Ok, I am working on some of these challenges and I did not have embossing paste but used my embossing folder to create a faux metal panel with my new Gelli plate and acrylic paint as well as Classic Ink and Metallic Pigment ink- so much fun!!
