Stencils, Tattered Angels and The Whatevers!

Hi, Martha Richardson here with more ideas on using stencils with Tattered Angels.I have a real love affair with stencils & Tattered Angels and once you see the possibilities a whole new world awaits you. My favorite technique is to create my own backgrounds. The Design Team has been sharing the various ways to create with stencils. I have 2 different projects to share with you today.

Here are the 3 stencils I used for these projects:

I often talk about MOP TAGS, these are manilla shipping tags that I use to mop up any excess mist and I save them for future use. I have two tags created from these Mop Tags and stenciled watercolor paper.

Tattered Angels Paint mediums used:

Chalkboard Glimmer Mist in Firefly, Valencia, Alaskan Salmon & Pink Polka Dot

Glimmer Glam in Chandelier & Rockin’ on Sunshine

Tattered Angels Paint Mediums Used:

Glimmer Mist in Key Lime Pie & Pearl

Glimmer Chalkboard in Fairway & Calypso

The above photo shows the back of the tags where I added the left over pieces, the watercolor paper that I use and more stencils & it’s matching MOP TAG! 

My second project is part of a monthly challenge created by 3 fabulous artists called THE WHATEVER’S, based on creative storytelling. If you want to know all the specifics you can find all the info. here at Nathalie Kalbach’s blog or here at Catherine Scanlon’s blog or here at our very own Tattered Angel, Vickie Chrisman’s blog! I was intrigued by the concept and spent sometime thinking about the story I wanted to create. I knew that a piece of old wallpaper would be the base for my 1st page/story and of course this could only be created with Tattered Angels.

Tattered Angels Paint products used:

Glimmer Mist in Nougat, Partridge in a Pear Tree, Woven Burlap & Cinder

Glimmer Chalkboard in Chalk

Here is the finished page and you’ll be able to read my story about The Whatever’ here.


I hope that I’ve inspired to try new techniques and ideas. Make sure you stop back tomorrow and the rest of the month to see what then Tattered Angel designers have to share. Thanks for stopping by!
