Creating backgrounds and patterned paper elements for cards, art journals and layouts is so easy using the extensive range of Imagine products. Today I am sharing how I used my Kaleidacolor inkpad to create a fun stenciled element for this layout. It ads loads of interest and shimmer to the background of this page in a few easy steps.

Skill: Beginner

Time: 1 hour + drying time

Directions

Step 1

Step 2

Position a tacky stencil to your paper. Use a sponge dauber and
Kaleidacolor ink and ink over the stencil using 4 different colours from
the ink pad.

Step 5

Add water splats to the background to create a pattern and add
some more texture.

Adhere the stenciled panel to your page. Add some colorful paint splats using a small paintbrush and watercolor paints.
