CC3C - Layering Stencils & Texture Paste

Happy wonderful Saturday crafty beings! Today marks the fourth challenge in the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge!!! The Curiosity Crew and I REALLY want you all to know that the entries from the challenges totally blow us away! We struggle to pick our favorites each time, and it's so difficult. Of all of the design teams for challenges I've been on, the entries for this one have all been amazing. I wish each of you could win! AND...thank you thank you thank you for all of the comments. My cup runneth over! 
Challenge number four is all about Layering Stencils and Texture Paste! These two go hand in hand, and I hope all of you play along on this challenge so you can win some amazing fabulous prizes donated by the ever generous Tim and Mario, and this fourth challenge's sponsor, The Funkie Junkie Boutique!!! Thank you sponsors for your generosity! You will have two weeks to complete this challenge and link it up to the CC3Challenge site, and you can carefully read all the rules here. Please take the time to visit every member of the Curiosity Crew (See below.) for not only some gorgeous textured inspiration, but for a chance to win some extra goodies!
Since Father's Day is just around the corner here in the U.S.A., I decided to make an 8x10 wood panel plaque for the man in my life, my hubby, and even though he is not my father, I am sooooooooo happy he is the father of my babes!
I absolutely LOVE all the texture on this from the technique, and I learned some things along the way. This is one of those projects you want to feel and touch, as the photos do not do it justice. If you haven't done this tech yet, I promise you will love it, and do try experimenting with different stencils and pastes. Sorry I have no step outs on this one, but I got so lost in the pleasure of the creating that I totally forgot to snap photos...that is how fabulous this technique is...plus I really got to get my grunge and vintage on which is my passion. Hope you enjoy!
Cabinet Cards and Found Relatives are my new passion too!
 
 
 
 
 
Happy Father's Day out there to all the wonderful men with babes!!!

Supplies:



I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
