Welcome everyone! Today I’m going to be showing you how to create a textured background for our baking mice. It adds such a realistic look to the kitchen and tons of fun
You can check out the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
It’s no secret that I love stencils. There are so many different things you can do with them and today I’m playing with Distress Grit Paste.
I started with the Brick stencil by applying a light coat of Pixie Spray to the back. This is low tack adhesive to help hold my stencil in place and when I remove it, it won’t rip my paper. After I apply the Pixie Spray, I attach the stencil to a piece of white card stock and apply the Distress Grit Paste using a spatula. I’ll set this off on the side to dry while I work on the rest of my card.
To decorate my kitchen, I’m using A Creature Was Stirring, Crazy Antics, Baked With Love and Sprinkled with Joy. My images are stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. All of the colors I used are listed in the video at the top of the screen.
I created a floor for my kitchen using Woodgrain card stock and built up my scene from there by adding a stove, cupboards and a countertop. Then I attached my baking mice around my kitchen. Some are attached with a tape runner and some are popped up with foam squares. Anything that is getting attached to the brick background I’ll be using Distress Collage Medium. This type of adhesive is designed for textured backgrounds like this.
I attached my completed panel to a piece of pattern paper from the Let It Shine paper pack. I’m obsessed with plaid and candy stripes right now and love how this looks with my kitchen!
I finished off my scene by adding highlights to my images with a white jellyroll pen and also some subtle sparkle with the Lawn Fawn Glitter Pen.
Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
