Tuesday Tutorial with Jen

Hi there! I hope that you've all had a very happy holiday season. Jen here, and I am sharing a tutorial using the December Pocket Life kit, as well as some mixed media supplies. Let's get started.

You'll need some modeling paste, a stencil, some acrylic paint, and a palette knife. If you don't have one of these, you can also use a spare gift card or old credit card. All of these supplies can be picked up at your local craft store.

You can definitely leave the modeling paste white, but for this page I decided to tint it pink. Here I used acrylic paint, but you could also use ink or mist as well.

Use a scrap piece of packaging or paper plate to mix up your paste until the desired color is acheived.

Secure the stencil to your project using some washi tape. This will help keep it in place as you're spreading the modeling paste over the stencil.

Carefully peel up the stencil and wait for your creation to dry! Make sure you wash your stencil and knife right away so the paste doesn't dry on it and ruin your tools.

Here's a look at how it turned out on the layout. Super cute, right?

And here is the layout in it's entirety. Love how this technique adds a subtle bit of texture to your projects! I hope you'll try this soon. Have a great day!
