Instructions

Preparation

Refer to the Basic Stenciling Tips for information on using Martha Stewart Stencils.

Ombre Journals

  1. Using a watercolor brush, wet the front of journal with water. Simply wet it, do not soak it.
  2. Fill a water brush with equal parts water and Beach Glass. 
  3. Beginning at the journal bottom, brush horizontally across the journal using more water towards the top to create an Ombre effect. Let dry completely.
  4. Repeat the above technique using Pink Dahlia and water on a second journal. Let dry.
  5. Stencil “Hello” on the Beach Glass journal and “Cheers” on the Pink Dahlia journal using Metallic Gold and a small dauber. Let dry.

Dream Journal

  1. Stencil a Beach Glass leaf garland. Add a little water to the paint and then stencil with lighter consistency at the top of stencil design as shown.
  2. Stencil “Dream” Pink Dahlia starting at the bottom. Again create an Ombre effect by stenciling lighter at the top of the word. Let dry.

Clean Up

  1. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries.
  2. Cleaned stencils should be stored on the backer sheet for future use.
