INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: For best results, paint continuously without allowing the paint to dry in order to achieve the best result (i.e., the seamless blending of colors).

  1. Make two small puddles of paint on opposite sides of the palette/plate with Smitten and Heritage. Make a new color by combining equal amounts of both colors in the middle of the palette/plate.
  2. Place the stencil on the album. Secure with painter's tape or hold in place. Use a cosmetic sponge to dab on Smitten from the top and going down about 1/3 of the way. Use the same cosmetic sponge and begin dabbing on the middle mix, slightly overlapping the previous color and going down about 2/3 of the way. Use the same cosmetic sponge and begin dabbing on Heritage, slightly overlapping the previous color continuing to the bottom of the binder.

HELPFUL HINTS

Dab off excess paint from the cosmetic sponge in order to avoid the paint from bleeding.
