Bokeh Technique

Bokah Card

 

Bokah examples

Happy Saturday!  I saw this cool video from WPlus 9 that teaches how to do the Bokeh technique easily.  You can find it here.  I used liquid acrylics from Liquitex for this project and Colorbox pigment ink in “Frost White”.  The sentiments are from WPlus9  and the sequence are from my stash. The cool thing is I made my own stencil from Tim Holtz masking sheets and circle dies from My Favorite Things. Check it out:

Bokah Stencil

Making your own stencils allow you to make whatever size you want and you don’t have to worry about the medium used on it or if it gets ruined. These come in 6  by 12 sheets so you can make your own 6 x 6 stencils.  Very fun. I will warn you that you do need to run the dies through a few times and make sure you put in a shim.

Just love a fun creative Saturday.  Please stop by and let me know what you are doing in your craft room today.
