Adding Foil with Stencils
http://static.inlinkz.com/ppr.js Hello everyone. I have been having so much fun, this month, playing with the Echo Park Teacher’s Pet collection and the Therm-O-Web Deco Foil. Have you had a chance to check either of them out? If not, you must! The Teacher’s Pet collection is a must have for all those school photos that pile up, and playing around the Deco Foil is so much fun! I have to admit, I’m just a tad obsessed with foiling right now!
In playing around, I was experimenting with my foils, the Deco Foil liquid adhesive, and my stencils. I was thrilled to see that you can use the liquid adhesive in the same way you do with the texture paste. How cool is that? So, I thought I would show you how I did it.
- paper and embellishments of your choice for your layout. I used the Echo Park Teacher’s Pet collection
- Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive
- Deco Foil – I used three different colours on my project
- a stencil
- a tool to spread the glue with – I used an old gift card
- Place your stencil onto your paper on the desired spot. Squeeze glue onto the spreading tool. Holding the stencil still with one hand, spread the glue onto the stencil, being very careful not to go over the edge of the stencil. If this happens, wipe it immediately. Any place there is adhesive on your paper is where the foil will stick.
2. Carefully lift the stencil from the paper. Allow to dry. This could take about an hour or two to air dry. When the adhesive is clear, it is dry. I sped up the process with my hairdryer set on a cool heat setting. It only took about 5 minutes to dry with the hairdryer. 3. Once the adhesive has dried, the fun begins. Cut your foil into small squares. You don’t need much. If you’re using different colours, like I did, cover areas that you don’t don’t want foiled with some type of non-stick paper. I used old sticker backing paper. Simply rub the foil onto the area you want foiled, using your finger tip. Remember to keep the foil side up! Continue until you have foiled all of the stenciled area. How fun is that?
