CAS Mix Up October Reminder


Our mid month reminder of the October CAS Mix Up Challenge!


Julia here as this month's hostess and
I'd like you to get out whatever stencils you may have or maybe make your own stencils by using one of your dies with acetate?!

Then we want you to use more than one stencil on your card - overlaying them - maybe stenciling with acrylic paint, and then layering another stencil over that and stenciling with ink, or Brushos, or watercolor?

There are several great videos on layering stencils linked below to get your creative juices flowing!

Remember to keep it all clean and simple leaving lots of open space on your card!

We also extend a hearty welcome to Sue - our talented Guest Designer for October!
