Good morning, and happy Tuesday!  Today is my day to share my Design Team project for RebeccaBaer.com  I am so thrilled to be part of this amazingly talented team. I am also so inspired by my team mates!  This week I wanted to do something colourful and Springy, so I got out some paints and sprays in all my brightest colours and began to play.
 
I used 2 of my favorite stencils from Rebecca's Store the dragonfly fantasy stencil, and the honeycomb stencil on a 12 x 12 piece of white cardstock. I layered on sprays, paint and a script stamp I had in my stash.
 
 You can see here on the right the finished paper. At the moment it doesn't look like much but I have plans for it!
 
After the paper was done on both sides, I cut the paper down to some manageable sizes, and ran it thru some different embossing folders. Next, I got out some of my favorite dies and placed them on either side of the paper to get a different colour effect. Below right you can see the effect of the embossing and die cutting of the paper. 
I next got out my Distress ink in black to highlight the embossing, and also grabbed my Gilded Stenciling and Stamping Adhesive, which I love. This adhesive is so wonderful! You just paint it on with a brush and let it dry. Once dry, the adhesive is now tacky and will hold your glitter, gilding paper or mica flakes.
 I got out my Distress Glitter and Mica/Glitter mix and added them to the tacky adhesive. It really allowed the butterflies to sparkle!
 Now it was time to work on the frame itself. I got out the Marrakech Stencil and some Cracked Pistachio spray. Next I reached for my  RebeccaBaer.com Stencil Gel and some Tim Holtz Tissue paper. I ripped random pieces of the tissue paper all over the frame, the gel works wonders for holding down things like this, it is quick and easy to use, and dries fast.
 Lastly, I used the Heritage Flora Stencil and some white crackle paste over most of the frame. After it dried I added some more light pink sprays to pick up on the crackle effect, you can see the results in the bottom right photo.
Here is the finished product! I am just thrilled with this little frame. It so reminds me of Spring. I had so much fun creating this piece, and I hope I have shown you how versatile these amazing stencils and products from RebeccaBaer.com are.
