Dreamweaver Stencils and Ranger Distress Ink Blog Hop!



Ready to be festively distressed once again? The Dream Team have been playing with Ranger's Distress Paints, and are ready to inspire you to be distressed as well...paint distressed that is! Dreamweaver Stencils are the perfect choice to mix with all things festively distressed, as nothing shows off color and texture better than great designs. By following our hop and leaving love along the way, you have the opportunity to win a great prize package including five Ranger Distress Paints and five Dreamweaver Stencils! Here's the lineup for today, including our November Guest Designer:


This is also our first posting day featuring our new monthly challenge, "Holiday Celebrations", and for the entire month we will be demonstrating ways to use Beacon Adhesives' entire line of products with Dreamweaver to create special projects in home decor and gifts of love. Here's mine:

 For this project, I first coated the small chest with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.  I used the dabber end and a paint brush that I dipped in the container.  When it was dry, I dabbed it lightly with Adirondack Metallic Paint in Gold.  The next layer was in Victorian Velvet Distress Paint.  I smeared a little on my craft sheet and picked it up with a stencil brush.  I brushed it through Dreamweaver Stencils LJ 896 and LM 288 to create the light pink swirls.

 The Fleur De Lis was created the same way with Seedless Preserves Distress Paint through the LS 66 Dreamweaver Stencil.
 The top of the box was created with the Large Fleur De Lis Stencil LL 447.  I ran it through my Cuttlebug with yellow coated Mercart aluminum and the Rubber Embossing Mat.  I then enhanced the embossing depth with Mercart Beginner Kit Tools.  When it was the way I liked it, I filled the back with hardening paste and let it dry.  Then, I adhered it with Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.

I used only one ply of a Paris themed beverage napkin to add details and distressing.  I ripped some of the edges against the Dreamweaver Deckle Frame Stencil LL 581 and applied it with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage.
That was mine.  Now, don't forget to leave a comment here and at the other links that I posted about for your chance to win!
