new studio 490... for CHA S 13...


THANKS SO MUCH 
for sharing your comments & enthusiasm...
I am so happy to finally share & not have to keep these secrets...

I sincerely appreciate the time you take to leave comments & send "special" emails...

OH and many THANKS 
for the FACEBOOK comments too...

you make me HAPPY...

you guys are THE BEST!

and if you would


 that would be super nice...
thanks again!

today I have 5 new stencils to show...
and an extra at the bottom of the post...

stencil #1...
create a flower...

this cutie has interchangeable stems/leaves & flowers...

use them together...
or alone...

or pair them with an art part...
they are mixable/matchable with other stencils too...

they are so easy to use with multiple colors, 
because they are separate...

 the openings allow stamps to be used thru the stencils for endless combinations of stamps & flowers...
or embossing pastes...

these are perfectly sized for cards or an art journal page...




like this...




#2 is a basic I keep reaching for...

it's the honeycomb...

it a great background & an excellent "filler" anytime you need a little something extra in the background...

I'm thrilled with this guy...


below it's paired with the new wreathe stencil I showed yesterday...
the art parts word is a perfect fit...


stencil #3...

3 flourishes...

another that I love because it has 3 size choices...
it's perfect for so many projects...
ink or add embossing paste thru the stencil...
or just trace the outline & then doodle inside the lines...



I'll use this one a lot...


stencil #4...

artful words...

I have used these on art journal pages and mixed media pieces...

LOVE the irregular font...
with 15 words to choose from...

yippee...


for some reason...

CHARMING 
is my new favorite word...
I just find it...

simply...

you got it...

charming!


and the final stencil...

#5...

I knew this would be a favorite,
 but I had no clue that I would love it so much...

the 2 fancy flowers stencil
is over the moon FUN...


below, I used it with some distress inks...
and some masking...

it's a completely flat art journal page...
but the layering/masking really makes it look dimensional...

can you see how much fun we'll have with this one?

keep it simple & use just one beautiful flower to make a statement...
or add some leaves...
or a stem from the 3 fresh flowers stencil...
or some leaves with the lovely leaves stencil...
or have a blast & fill a whole page...
like I did...



and speaking of fun...

I LOVE distress & archival inks with stencils...

but to create added texture,
my new embossing paste totally ROCKS...

it's translucent paste...
be still my heart...
I AM in LOVE!

if you have the black & white embossing pastes
you know that they are a matte finish & they are kind of spongy when dry...

the gold & silver pastes are much firmer...

this translucent paste dries with a very hard solid surface...

and it does have some shine...
you can "gently" heat it with the heat tool to speed up the drying time, if you are like me...

with ZERO patience...

you can tint it with lots of Ranger products...

you can easily stamp over it with archivals...

Ted has this is IN STOCK and ready to ship!

look how cute...




 I used it with the stencil after I had added my color & stamped thru the stencil...

I used the translucent paste only over the flower to really make it stand out...


this new paste LOVES tim's distress products A LOT...

I have 3 of my very first experiments in the photo below...

the sample on the left is the translucent paste, applied thru the "yikes stripes" stencil
then I sprayed the distress stains while the paste was wet...
(I put the stains into misters)
I blasted it with the heat tool to cook the colors into the paste & create this cool textured/mottled background...

the middle example is the translucent paste 
thru the "yikes stripes" stencil (on a black tag),
 dried,  then lightly & randomly painted with distress paints...

the sample on the right is the translucent paste 
dried & then completely painted over with distress paints...

you might not want to try this...

what I *thought* would be a 20 minute EXPERIMENT, turned into a whole AFTERNOON of play...
and new technique discoveries...

I was so busy experimenting that I couldn't possibly cook dinner...
oh darn...
you have been warned! lol...

it is totally addicting & so many products you already have will work with this new paste...

it's completely flexible, when dry & it does not flake off or crack...

it's pure MAGIC!

here's my samples...


that's it for "CHA summer 13"...
 volume 2...

thanks for visiting...
tomorrow...
volume 3!

ok...
you've seen all 10 of my new stencils...

I'm wondering...

which is your MOST favorite?
ready...

set...

go!

talk to me while I...

make (more CHA) art!
wendy
ps...hmmm...
what to show tomorrow?
maybe stamps?

I just can't decide which stencil is my fave because I simply in love with ALL of them!!!

Too bad those are sooo far away. You guys have the good stuff, in many parts of Europe it's a little bit to find it.

Flo said...

Today my favorite one is the flourishes followed closely by the artful words.

Eileen Bellomo said...

Impossible to pick a favorite; I love ALL of the flower stencils, and I am not even a flower person! But honestly, that clear embossing paste is making my heart beat faster. Looking forward to hours of experimenting with it.

Stephanie Rodgers said...

Gotta have them all, but my two favorites are Artful Words and The Layered Tree. And, I LOVE the sample of the blue flower with the clear paste. Can't wait to try it myself!

Renee said...

Wendy - I love them all! My favorite, if I have to pick would be "From the Garden" so many possibilities. Enjoying the sneak peaks.

darcydaydream said...

Oh Wendy you are going to bankrupt me. I have to have them all. My fave is the honeycomb.....off to make art...xx

akmoose said...

SOOO hard to choose...perhaps ARTFUL WORDS? I love them all. Flourishes also really caught my eye.

olive said...

Impossible to pick just one fav! Today, I really like the 2 fancy flowers and the honeycomb stencils. Can't wait to try your new embossing paste.

Holly said...

I can't wait to try your new background stamps on the Gelli Plates I received in the mail yesterday.

Lynn Hardy said...

The honeycomb stencil is lovely - as are the flourish and the 2 large flowers. I think that the tree from yesterday is my very favourite so far though.

famillemarleau said...

I love all your new stencils but my favorite is the barcode one. Johanne L.

Kristina M. Anderson said...

Love the new paste! So many wonderful possibilities. My favorite new stencil is the flourishes. I do not know what it is about flourishes, but I love them! The flower stencil is also gorgeous. I love how you used it with the beautiful colors. Thank you for sharing your lovely new creations with us! Have a great weekend!

Shannon said...

Not only am I in love with your new stencil's Wendy, I am also in love with your counter-part Tim's stencils. I just love how all of your products work so well with one another. There is such a sweet, homey feeling to all of your products. That's a compliment by the way. Your continued ideas for new products just amazes me every CHA show. It's as if the more products you come up with, the more and more creative you get and flourish. I've said it before, but I am truly in awe of you and your artistic abilities. Congrats on all the new goodies!

Kathleen said...

Can you tint the clear emb paste with distress reinkers? And do the paler colours work or do you need to use the more vibrant colours?
Many thanks
