Spirit of the Woods by Helen Chilton


If you saw the shows on Hochanda last week you'll have seen these lovely new stamps and stencils. I've used them on a journal page:

I'm using a 5x7 Gelli Plate and the A4 circle stencil which has to be one of the most useful of all time!

This is a semi circle and grid stencil with the lovely Orange Multi Surface Paint:

And finally this stencil (not sure what it's called) which I've used again and again:

After that I stencilled directly on the page - some more white circles, but not too heavy as I wanted the background to show through.

Then I used the stencil as a mask to stamp and black emboss Lynne's trees.

I added specks of silver embossing powder on top of the black - I've decided two tone embossing is the way forward!

The words and phrases on this set are fantastic and also very flexible - to get the right curve I just put the block over the circle and curved the words round to fit.

I got so carried away I did a double layer!

I've loved making this. Not wanting to waste any paint, I made another background with the gelli plate at the same time which I'm going to use for another project.
